Because of a change in circumstances I have been unable to get onto the forums as much as I used to. I am still active and will respond to PM's or emails! I only get home on weekends so it may take me a little longer to Journal books as they sit on the table until I get home! Thanks so much!

About me :
I am a 24 year old Australian who has been living in London(UK) for the last 2 years. And It looks like I will be here for another 6-8 months.

I love reading... for as long as I can remember I have always had my head stuck in a book, much to my mothers dismay when she needed me to do something. I have nearly always stuck to Scifi/fantasy but in the last couple of years I have found that there are other great books out there. I still love a good fantasy book but am trying to branch out a bit.

I stumbled across this site when I was looking for something to do. I am living in london but do plan on going home in the next year. I don't want to buy up a big collection of books as boxing them up and taking them home will be expensive. I think this community will be a great way for me to read books without having to store them :).

Any Book on my bookself that is set to availble I am willing to Trade/Ray/BB/Swap... Any Book that is Set to To Be Read is availble for BookRings

In case PM's do not work my email is rebeccatowns at gmail dot com

Don't hesitate to request :)

Things I like :
-Any Fantasy/Scifi books ( I have not organised a wish list yet... but I will read any in this Genre)
