! Starting from April 2023, I have a new postal address.
I read in English and in Russian.
My other hobbies are Postcrossing, writing letters, cross-stitching, and gardening.
I like to "release" my books when I travel. I'd always look for an open bookshelf or an OBCZ at my travel destination. A friend of mine is organizing English book swaps in Zurich, so some of my books will be released there.
Things I would love to get in a surprise bookish parcel:
- cozy handmade things ( ornaments, bookmarks, socks ( size 38/ 5.5), etc)
- beautiful stationery for writing letters ( can be from a charity shop)
- Earl Grey or Rooibos tea
- BC stickers and stationery
- dark chocolate
- your local food specialty ( no meat/dairy, please)
- beeswax candles
- something small/affordable from Neal's Yard or Lush stores, or similar stores in your country
- Oracle cards
- kitchen towels
- sheet masks
- anything British-themed ( I used to live in London!)
- anything with garden birds ( especially robins or pigeons) or chickens
- Country Living or BBC Good Food magazine from the UK, or Victoria magazine from the US ( new or second-hand)
- as well as books from my wishlist, of course!
* Second-hand items in good condition will be loved and cherished as much, as new things. I'm always happy to receive wings!
My latest obsession is The Sandman series on Netflix, so anything connected to these ( merch, comic books - I already have vol.1, etc) is very welcome!
