Extended Profile

I joined BookCrossing a few years ago and was active for a good while but fell out of the habit.

However I noticed a bookshelf has appeared at my local train station and it inspired me to come back to the site.

COMPLETED SERIES

I've got a number of complete series that I've collected, mostly YA, fantasy or sci-fi, and much as I support the BookCrossing ethos of freeing my books, I just can't bring myself to let them go! But, rather than them just sitting on my shelves gathering dust, I'm more than happy to loan them out (UK only, sorry!). To see the series I have (list last updated 22nd February 2019), just view my Permanent Collection bookshelf, and if there's anything you'd like to read just send me a PM.

RABCKs:

If I'm lucky enough to receive any RABCKs, things I like are:
Bookcrossing supplies
All kinds of stationery/notecards/greetings cards
Anything Harry Potter
Anything with fairies and butterflies which I would gift to my nieces
Tea!
As you can see from my wishlist, I read a lot of YA, especially with fantasy/dystopia/end of the world themes

I'm not able to eat sugar so can't eat any sweets/chocs (but I do pass these on to family members if received!)
