Extended Profile
Lover of books (print, audio, and electronic), languages, exploration, and maps. I love being around people almost as much as I love being by myself.

If I have a book marked as "available", that means that I'm ready to release it and have no specific plans for it; if I have one that you're interested in, PM me and we can see about working out a trade. If I have a book marked as "reserved", that means that I plan to release it but am waiting because I have a specific place/time in mind; if I have one that you're interested in you can still PM me and I will consider it on a case-by-case basis. :)

I am interested in books written in foreign languages. This includes both books originally written in foreign languages, and books translated into foreign languages from English. If you have foreign language books that you're interested in passing on, feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss trading them for anything on my "available" to "TBR" lists!

Here's a list of the foreign language books currently in my possession; when I'm done with them, I would love to send them away to someone who can read the language, someone who is learning the language and would like reading practice, or someone who is able to release them in an area where the language is widely spoken:

If you are interested in book marked as available, feel free to PM me. Books marked as being on my TBR will most likely be available eventually, though I can't promise it'll be anytime soon! I don't read any other languages nearly as fast as I read English, and I sort of cycle through them, so if someone is interested in (for example) a TBR Turkish book, my response may very well be "Well, I don't think I'll be doing anything with Turkish for at least six months...". But if you don't need the book by a certain date and don't mind potentially waiting for a long time, definitely feel to PM me and ask me about my TBRs; I would be happy to mark them off as being claimed by somebody for whenever I do finish with them.

I have wild-released books in the following US states:
Connecticut
Maine
Massachusetts
New Hampshire
Vermont

And in the following places outside the US:
Greenland
Iceland
Sweden

And I have mailed books to the following places for controlled releases:
Australia
Arizona, USA
Austria
Canada
England
Finland
Germany
Hawaii, USA
Latvia
Ohio, USA

Hopefully there will be many more places to come on all lists! :)
