I have a very large back log of books to read, so please no surprise books at the moment


Kia Ora! (Maori for Hello!)

I am from New Zealand, lovely little country if I do say so myself!
I joined Bookcrossing in 2005 but didn't really get fully hooked till 2009.
I like ficton/non ficton, romance, paranormal, mysteries etc.
One of my favourite series is the Incrytid series by Seanan McGuire, I like all of Jane Austen's books, Terry Prachett etc, etc.
I'm also having a go at the, 1001-books-to-read-before-you-die list.
And I love to receive RABCKs! as well as give them!
(I'm on
