I've moved!!
I no longer live in Virginia. Be sure to PM before you mail anything to me!

Are you in the Washington, DC, metro area? Please join BC in DC, the group for BookCrossers in DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland. We meet monthly(ish) at various locations around the area.
I have a Little Free Library! And it's also an OBCZ!
My username is the name of the villain in Castle Perilous by John DeChancie. The book itself is pretty mediocre, but I got an online handle out of it which I've been using since around 1993. It's all one word: muh-LID-ee-uh. My name is not Lydia. :)
As of 27 November 2023...

Longest time between release and catch: 9 years, 3 months

Check out my wild catches.

I'm hosting a BookCrossing Meetup Bookbox. It's like a normal bookbox, except instead of being passed between individuals, it's being passed between local BookCrossing groups.
