I enjoy all different kinds of books. I read books in English and Spanish and am working on learning Italian right now. If you have any books to offer in either Spanish or Italian, I would greatly appreciate it as these are harder to come by around here.

I'm always willing to send my books to new loving homes. If you have a book on my wishlist to offer as a trade, great. If not, don't worry about it. Chances are I'll still be willing to send it to you. I expect that at some point in the future you will repay the favor either to myself or another bookcrosser (or maybe you already have!). Generally, I prefer to ship to US but will always make an exception if I know my book will be cared for and appreciated.

For you Kindle users out there, I'm also willing to loan out any of my Kindle ebooks (within Amazon's narrow restraints). I haven't found a really good way to do this. But I've registered all my ebooks on Shelfari.com (in order to keep them seperate from my hard copy books registered here) under the same user name. Unfortunately, this doesn't allow you to see whether a book is lendable or if I've already lent it (Amazon limits lending to a single time per book). But if I have something you want to read, send me a message there or a PM here. If allowed by Amazon, I will lend it to you. Make sure you send me your email address so I can lend it out. I'm also registered at ebookfling but as this is annonymous; its only for my "wild-releases".
