The books on my shelf do not necessarily reflect my reading tastes or interests. I find and release books of most genres. If you are interested in a book on my shelf, I would be glad to trade with you for something from my book wish list. If you do not have a book to trade then please offer to pay shipping or offer something to trade from my non-book wish list below.

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 20 down to 7--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 love to write and am the author of the popular blog, Classical Homemaking, as well as my book blog, Belle's Library and my newest venture, The Victorian Letter Writers Guild. I love Jesus and try to live my life according to the teachings of the Bible. For the past 14 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.
