I appreciate a pm before you send me
another bookring because sometimes I'm swamped !

November, 2017



Hi there,
welcome to my bookshelf! I found this site in december 2002 and I try to update my bookshelf every weekend. I love to trade for books from my wishlist and am willing to trade books that are AVL and TBR on my bookshelf. If you want to trade a book please make sure I actually have the book in my possesion and pm me after (thanks!). I'm willing to ship pretty much everywhere the cheapest (= slowest) way possible, which at the moment is from Germany. To do this I bring my books to a bookcrosser in another town about every 6-8 weeks and when she goes to Germany she mails the books for me.
Have fun and I hope to see you again someday on my bookshelf!
Greetings from dutch-flybabe (formerly known as dutch-flybaby)

P.S. Since 7 oktober 2005 I've been manager of OBCZ-Kaketoe in Ede, the town where I live. This OBCZ doesn't exist anymore since november of 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Check out my wishlist. Please don't make assumptions based on my bookshelf here - most of it is obtained specifically to cross so doesn't indicate my personal preferences.
I'm not on the RACBK-site but you may request my address from Dettie.

2012: no challenge, just enjoying reading and trading books. Books registered by others that are longest on mountTBR still have priority, but books I have traded for I want to read asap as well.
Activities in 2012: read books, did trades, wishlist tag game and one bookring.

2011:
challenge: reduce mountTBR, especially books which are registered by other bookcrossers.
I read these books.

2010:
2009/2010 uitdaging:
voor het eind van het jaar wil ik 2009 boeken geregistreerd en losgelaten hebben. In de eerste 10 dagen van januari wil ik mijn 2010-de boek registreren en loslaten (niet noodzakelijkerwijs hetzelfde boek).
I read 74 books of which 59 from mountTBR, 9 unregistered books and 6 bookrings/rays.

2009:
challenge: reduce mountTBR, especially books which are registered by other bookcrossers.
I read 29 books (registered by another bookcrosser), 18 (selfregistered) books from MountTBR, 5 ringbooks and 4 not BC books.

2008
Challenge: on January 1 of 2008 there are 198 books on mountTBR which I have not registered myself. I want to reduce the number of books.
I read 51 books (registered by another bookcrosser), 11 (selfregistered) books from MountTBR and 11 bookrings.


In 2007 I read 28 bookrings/rays and read 48 books from mountTBR, completed 1 trade.
In 2006 I read 40 bookrings/rays (of which 1 audiobook), completed 4 booktrades and read
42 books from mount TBR :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bookratings and their meaning:
10: Excellent. This book has impacted me deeply, or has simply been a pure delight to read.
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10.
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others.
7: Good book, but it didn't grab me in a big way.
6: Decent, but not my type of book.
5: Maybe somebody else would like this, I didn't. I had trouble to finish reading this book.
