***While I truly do appreciate the kindness of my friends who send me books they think I'll enjoy, my reading tastes are pretty specific. It may be wise to check with me before sending something unless it is on my wishlist. Also, I no longer celebrate Christmas or Easter but instead celebrate the Fall and Spring Biblically appointed times as outlined in Leviticus 23. Thanks so much!**

The books on my shelf do not necessarily reflect my reading tastes or interests. In the past, I found and released books of most genres.

I'm Sarah Coller, aka Elizardbreath. I received that lovely moniker from my mom (BookCrosser Charlieshack) when I was about 7, as a play on my middle name, Elizabeth. I'm the mother of 9 little sweeties aged 21 down to 8--5 girls, 4 boys. My husband and I homeschool our children---a responsibility that is mainly mine since he works full time as a computer software programmer. I stay pretty busy with my YouTube channel, Hope Cottage Tiny Homestead. I love the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) and I try to live my life according to the Torah and other teachings of the Bible. For the past 15 years of membership, I have formed wonderful friendships, experienced literature that I never would have picked up before, and learned a lot about the world outside of my own little spot on the map.

My Wish List for Swaps and Sweeps:

Letter writing and mail art supplies** (hard to find in US stores!)
Daphne's Diary or similar magazines
scrapbooking/junk journal supplies

Books/Magazines about Nature, Homemaking, Homesteading
