*WELCOME!*






I've always read ... I love reading and read anything I can get my hands on......though not everything on my shelf reflects my reading taste.... sometimes surprising things have happened and I have ended up liking something that I never would have thought to have read in the first place. I love the whole idea of bookcrossing and hope that more people out there will embrace the it, for the whole spirit of bookcrossing is simply wonderful! ....
