I am *very* happy for one of my bookcrossing books to remain in someone's Permanent Collection. Once it has left my hands, it is no longer my book and I do not feel I have any influence over what happens to it! *However* this excludes, rings, rays and loans, and I would obviously appreciate a journal entry to say what is happening, even if you do decide to keep it!!

30/10/07 - Thank you Molekilby for winging me - thank you, thank you, thank you!!

12/04/07 - Thank you for keeping me flying for another month MooMoo1977 I got your card when I got home from Easter! I still wonder who made me fly for February though.....

09/02/07 - Whoever wung me in the last couple of days, I am very very happy! What a wonderful end to the week :-)! And if you'd like to let me know who you are, that'd would be even better!" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="BookCrossing UK Unconvention '07 Brighton 29 June-1 July; I'll be there, will you?" border="0" align="right">

Any books that are in my permanent collection I may be willing to lend out (UK only though - student loan debt=not much money). Some PC ones are there because I know I won't be reading them for a long time (for example, the discworld ones I want to read in order....). Please ask about any TBR or AVAILABLE ones as I may well be willing to send them out as trades, rings or rays. Please don't ask for RABCKs - I do send them, but only as a surprise and when I can afford it!
