Extended Profile
My profile picture is Godrevy Lighthouse in Cornwall. Kernow is Cornish for Cornwall, where I was born. I spent a lot of my childhood on Hayle beach overlooking this lighthouse, and my father was born nearby. Not only that, the place even has a literary link.

Here are some more numbers:
Bookrings and rays read and passed on......................128
Active bookrings and rays that I'm waiting for.............0
Stalled* bookrings and rays that I'm waiting for............1
RABCKs and trades waiting to be read.......................41
Wild releases of mine that have been caught..............28 out of 165......17%

* Note: I'm no longer counting bookrings that never got started, or which have been stalled for over a year.
