In December 2002 I read an article about bookcrossing and loved the idea of reading and sharing books with the world. Of course I had to join and have enjoyed it ever since.

I have recently updated my bookshelf and have a lot of books I would be willing to share, trade or set free but would prefer other dedicated Book Crossers who would be willing to journal the adventures of these books.

If you see a book you would be interested in and it has been labeled "to be read", email me and I will try to move it up the list to be read sooner.

Happy reading!
