****NOTE: At this time I can only send books to BCers in the US. I will be sending one ray to the UK in a few weeks and it will be my last overseas shipping until my finances turn around to the sunnier side! Please feel free to PM me about US trades but at this time I will have to refuse any requests from places other than the US. This includes bookrings and rays. I will no longer be able to join rays or rings unless I can ship in the US.**** target="_blank">" border="0" alt="Photobucket">

Hello, I am a student, a wife, a friend, a daughter, EXPECTANT MOM, and I am currently working full-time in a library which is great. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in English May 2008 and I began my Master's in Library Science June of 2009. I think it would be amazing to work in an acquisitions department of a large library. My longterm plan is to go to UT in Austin for their PhD program. I love books, obviously, and want to have a career working with them in some way.

I love to trade books (for other books or postage) so if you see anything on my list that you like feel free to PM me. Some things are listed as AVL instead of TBR because I have too many books to read and might possibly share them before I read them, it really just depends on the book. Books listed under PC are not available unless I decide to offer them on goodwill. TBR books may also be available depending on the book. There is a method to my madness, but it is only clear to me. Just ask if you see something you like! My bookrays/bookrings are always open unless otherwise stated. A lot of the books on my list do not reflect my reading intrests because I collect books from my family members when they are done reading them. My TBR list probably reflects my interests more than AVL.
