About my wishlist:

My wishlist has now reached 13 pages, which many consider really long. That's because I mainly use it as a note to self, and every now and then go through local library databases and delete the ones listed. By no means do I want to seem greedy for RABCKs.

There are quite a few books about the LDS/Mormon movement on my list right now. That's because they are books I can't find in my local libraries, and I'm interested in pursuing the topic from an academic perspective. Personally I have no ties to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or other religious groups using the Book of Mormon as a part of the foundation of their faith.

Please note that like many Finnish bookcrossers, I tend to cover the books that pass through my shelf with book laminate so that they could travel around in good condition (not ring or ray books, though).

December was the annual HIV/AIDS awareness month, so during that month I wore red ribbons instead of wings.

Here are some useful links, if you're interested in learning more about the issue and/or donating money to fight HIV/AIDS and its impact on people.

International:
Check out your local chapter of Red Cross. The Red Cross does, among other things, HIV/AIDS work.

Finland-centric:
*Aidstukikeskus (AIDS support centre)
*Punainen Risti (Finnish Red Cross)
*Zimbabwen aids-orvot ry (a society to aid Zimbabwean children who have lost their parents to AIDS - Finnish BC:ers have previously helped collect them books, money and other things needed)
*Lähetysseura (Evangelical Lutheran Mission: a long-standing and well established organization that fights HIV/AIDS by informing people in developing areas and giving them condoms and clean needles)

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
