I have always thought of my bookshelves as part sanctuary (in the sense of a place for rescued books, as well as a preserve), part curiosity cabinet, and part personal history. But I got over that, not long after joining Bookcrossing.

I favour contemporary literary fiction, as well as historical fiction and non-fiction of/set in the 18th Century. I am beginning to read some 'cult fiction.'

Some books I will send out on unknown adventures, as it is their nature to wander; most I will want to deliver into welcoming hands. I will trade most anything listed (not travelling) here, just propose.

If I join your ring or ray, I'll pay international postage as necessary.
