Thanks for checking out my profile!

I rarely keep books on hand for very long - they are registered and then moved along.

Home is a rural area, that is a 30 minute drive outside of the city of Prince George, British Columbia (BC) Canada - hence the BC in my bookcrossing ID!

Since I DO live in a rural area with a bit of space, that means I can have all sorts of interesting creatures. geese, chickens and rabbits! As well as a Sammy, a miniature donkey.

I'm a "canning" fanatic - though you might call it "bottling" if you are in the UK! I do up jams, vegetables, juice, meat, all kinds of things. If you can new to preserving, one of my favorite gurus is a lady name Jackie Clay. She has some great how-to books.

I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on.

Some sites that I can highly recommend:

Better World Books

My address on is current - but I'm not able to get into that site to do updates - argh!
