As for myself, I read a lot, but nowhere near as much as I'd like to. I'll try most authors but my three all-time favourite books are "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood, and "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas. Perhaps a strange mix!

I do most of my bookcrossing at the meetup each month but will occasionally wild release elsewhere and am more than happy to receive PM requests for anything that's lying on my available pile. However, if anyone wants to do the latter, I think it's always polite to offer a trade.
