Updated 30 July 2014

I took a looonnnggg break from Bookcrossing, if you can call 5 years a break. I've released a fews books and been to a few meetups in the interim, but the addicttion never goes away, and now I'm coming back and hope to be releasing again very soon

I blog about the books I'm reading at BookAddiction, and have just started a bookish website which I hope one day to develop into a bookshop." border="0" alt="Jessicamulley - View my recent photos on Flickriver" title="Jessicamulley - View my recent photos on Flickriver"/>

I'm a complete book addict - I love reading, but I love the books as well, and am always delighted to make the acquaintance of bookcrossers.

I like to trade books, so if you see something on my availables that takes your fancy, just send me a PM and we can take from there. You can follow my bookish adventures on twitter if you like - @bookaddictUK
