I'm a cataloger, crafter, cat mom, and self-professed book snob (might as well admit it!).

Though I'm not as active as I used to be, I'm a huge fan of wild releasing. It's what drew me to BookCrossing many years ago and it's what keeps coming me back. There are many other avenues for sharing and obtaining books, many avenues for social networking, but only one place I know of where you can participate in the grand social experiment of leaving good books for strangers to find.


I am willing to trade anything on my bookshelf marked "available," just PM me. If you're interested in a TBR book, let me know -- there's a good chance I'll be able to hurry up and read it. Please note that I'm currently only able to send within the U.S. or Canada.

I use the wishlist for any books I cannot find in my library system or at local bookstores. I do keep my wishlist current! If a book has been wished for several years ago, it just means I've been searching for it for a long time.


"What can we see, read, acquire, but ourselves. Take the book, my friend, and read your eyes out, you will never find there what I find." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
