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.
TBR - Books I have found but not read yet.
AVL - Books that are available to wild release or trade. Feel free to PM me if you see something of interest - I am happy to swap books.
PC - It is unlikely I will register any books from my Permanent Collection.
RES - Books I have reserved for a specific wild release, controlled release, RABCK or a bookring/ray.
I work with animals and have a mad cocker spaniel (because they never grow up!) a budgie and a couple of Syrian hamsters. My hobbies include calligraphy so I am interested in manuscripts and historical documents.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 www.bookcrossing.com/---/14511943/ (completed to end of ray)
Bookrings/rays I have participated in:
