Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul.
The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and
lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands,
every time someone runs his eyes down it's pages, its spririt grows and strengthens.
Carlos Ruiz Zafón

"In the beginning I was just giving books away. I got a new book, I gave away an old one. I always keep just seven. But then I began to find that others were leaving books where I had left mine and I thought, these are for me. So now I replenish my library with the random gifts of unknown strangers and I never know what I will read next."
Salman Rushdie

I read - therefore I bookcross!

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum."
Henry Miller

Hi, my name is Haugtussa and I'm a book addict!
As a lot of other people here I can not remember a life without books. One of my first book memories is of scarying myself so much that I wasn't able to sleep - after reading Carolyn Keene's books about Nancy Drew! When it comes to reading my 95 year-old grandmother is my hero, and I'd like to quote her: "I don't do any housework anymore, there are too many books to read before I die!" (She said this ten years ago, and still lives by it).
I read pretty much anything, although I'm not particularly fond of Sci-Fi/Fantasy or Romance. My bookshelf does not really reflect my reading taste as I register a lot of books just to wild release them.

I am also the mother of three wonderful children (4, 7 & 10) and I am a full-time teacher. I'm married to another reader, but our tastes differ quite a lot. He tends to read all the thrillers I register for wild releasing!

Two of my favourite JE's. This one is in Norwegian and this one is in English.
