The books on my AVL shelf do not necessarily represent my reading preferences! For those please check my wishlist or the books on my TBR shelf.

If you are interested in any of my books marked "available" just send me a PM and we'll work something out. For books marked "to be read" you can send a PM as well and I will move it to the top of Mt. TBR.

My own current Bookrings, -rays and -boxes:
None at the moment BookRing - still open to join

I am currently waiting for the following Bookrings, -rays and -boxes:

Graue Bienen (ring started by Mary-T)
Der Buchspazierer (ring started by CrimeLady)
Eine Frage der Chemie (audioring started by Kerstin1602)

I'm trying to cut down on these so that I will eventually be able to actually reduce my Mt. TBR. Because my motivation to join BC had a lot to do with wanting to REDUCE the amount of books I have ;-))
