WELCOME TO BOOKCROSSING!


If you found one of my books, I hope you enjoy it and the BookCrossing site/community.

It is my 19th year with BookCrossing. I enjoy trading and wild releasing. Although the only wild releases I have done since the pandemic are in Little Free Libraries. Thanks to all the LFL stewards out there!


The books on my shelf don't necessarily reflect my tastes. People give me books and I often buy random bags of books at book sales. Before the pandemic happened, I loved to do themed releases.


I mostly read fiction. Here are some of my favorite books in no particular order: This Tender Land, A Man Called Ove, Cutting for Stone, Gone Girl, The Double Bind, Big Stone Gap, Evening Class, The Glass Lake, Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Thirteenth Tale, Bel Canto, My Sister's Keeper, I Capture the Castle, White Oleander, A Painted House, Five Quarters of the Orange, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Pillars of the Earth, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Angela's Ashes, Time and Again, The Joy Luck Club.

Some of my favorite series are the Donna Andrews Meg Lanslow mysteries, the Coffeehouse Mysteries by Cleo Coyle, Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series, The Monkeewrench series by P.J. Tracy, and the No. 1 Ladies' Detective series by Alexander McCall Smith.

Hopefully that gives you somewhat of an idea of what I like to read. I love recommendations, so let me know if there is anything you think I'd enjoy!
