Extended Profile
I joined bookcrossing originally back in 2013 but only really started in earnest in January 2017 when I realised my bookshelves needed thinning out. This has backfired somewhat because I've caught myself purchasing second-hand copies purely to bookcross and now have more books than ever!

I enjoy reading historical fiction, murder mysteries, fantasy and mythology although I'm happy to give most genres a go because there are some nice surprises out there! Favourite authors include Bernard Cornwell, Agatha Christie and Terry Pratchett.

I'm a member of Goodreads where I concentrate my efforts on completing various reading challenges. So far I have finished an A-Z of Authors, An A-Z of one word titles and Around the World in 80 books.

I try to read all the books I bookcross so my shelves should give a good indication of my preferences although I have received a large box of children's books for bookcrossing which I won't be reading!
Feel free to PM me if you see something of interest on my available shelf - I am happy to swap books.

I work with animals and have a mad cocker spaniel, a budgie and a Syrian hamster. My hobbies include calligraphy so I am interested in manuscripts and historical documents.

Bookrings/rays I have organised:
Dewey - The small town library cat who touched the world (completed to end of ray)

Bookrings/rays I have participated in:
My Antonia
Gutenberg's Apprentice
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
One Blood
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street
