Hi all! Just a quick note -- lately the PM's I send out are having trouble reaching their intended destinations! If you can't reach me (or think you can't 'cos my responses aren't arriving, even though I've sent them out), try ISOing me. I'm especially easy to reach at! alt="PaperBackSwap - Swap your used paperback books with other club members.">" width="468" height="60" />

Hey, this PaperBackSwap place is pretty cool for trading books within the US and US territories. It's free and pretty darn idiot-proof, too!

The existence of good bad literature—the fact that one can be amused or excited or even moved by a book that one's intellect simply refuses to take seriously—is a reminder that art is not the same thing as celebration.
~George Orwell, Good Bad Books

Books to the ceiling Books to the sky.
My pile of books Are a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have gray hair By the time I read them.

Many, many thanks to Cliff1976 for this nifty wish list!

About trades--I do some trading, so feel free to ask, just please understand that I may or may not accept. It's not personal if I have to turn you down, though--I love hearing from other BCer's! I only trade from my AVL list, and I'm especially tempted to trade for things from my wish list! My TBR's are usually waiting to be read by me and several family members so they just aren't available now, and reserves are promised elsewhere.

A TAN Dragon Lies Beneath!" border=1 alt="My inner dragon color is TAN. Click here to try the Quiz!">

My inner dragon is the true draconic magic-user. Deep down I am very wise, somewhat shy, and I have a rather short fuse. But don't worry, tans prefer to spend their time counting their enormous treasure, so pass quietly and you'll stay out of danger. Click the image to try the Inner Dragon Online Quiz for yourself.

Books I have actually caught in the wild: One! On December 3, 2004!
