I'm in bookstogive's Thriller/Mystery VBB.
Boekentrol is starting up a Murder in Translation or Fiction in Translation VBB . PM them please if you are interested. I still do have lots of books suitable for either of these boxes.
My first MURDER IN TRANSLATION VBB is here: www.bookcrossing.com/---/10358250
And I'm collecting books for a 'paranormal mystery' VBB. PM if interested.
I'm also intending to start a 'little books' box - a real box this time - to recapture those olden days at Bookcrossing. PM me if interested.
MY INTERESTS: Genealogy & Family History; Women's History; Canadian History; Mysteries, especially those with women detectives and those with historical themes. If they include women's history &/or some genealogy, I'm really happy.
