My cat Pekka just loooves books... :)

Hi, and welcome to my bookself!
I've been a member since 2005, but active since summer 2006. I have been reading a lot all my life, as a kid I was regular visitor at the nearby library. I leave my book at home quite rarely.

Below in my bookself I keep track of what I'm reading currently and planning to read (whether I've promised a book to someone for example). Underneath them are rings I'm participating or have started. I also keep a track record of the books I've read this years, lists for past few years can be seen too.

All the books in my AVL-shelf are free to be asked for. TBR's can be asked too. :) My Wishlist is usually updated. For some books I've added English and Finnish title, but any book can be in Finnish or English as I read a lot in both languages.

**** MY ADDRESS HAS CHANGED ON 1.9.2017 *****

My wishlist for sweeps and games:
* books from my wishlist or any you think I might like
* any book about Auschwitz or the Holocaust (just recently visited there)
* chocolate (or candy, I'm not that picky...), especially Lindt.
* tea (black, green, white, infusions, anything goes) I love love love The English Tea Shop teas.
* flavored coffee (grounded or instant), I especially love vanilla and caramel
* cat treats and toys to spoil the purrrmaster of the house
* BC supplies (preferably sticky ones and especially tiny stickers)
* shower gels, body lotions etc (I love cosmetic products, but I don't really use much make-up)
* tea lights and candles as I love them
* wings

My wishlist at Thanks cliff1976!
