Extended Profile

Last updated November 21, 2017

I fell and broke my arm on February 18 2015, had surgery on the 24th and am hoping that if I owe you something you'll understand. I've had lots of physical therapy and life is slowly coming back to normal (whatever that is)!
Life is busy. I'm forgetful. Email is iffy. If you are expecting something from me or expecting me to journal something please feel free to PM me with questions. I usually have way too much on my plate:) My mom fell and broke her hip (for the second time) on the Friday before Thanksgiving 2010. She went from hospital to hospital rehab to nursing home rehab and finally to assisted living. As of March 2012 she's back in the nursing home and will most likely stay there indefinitely. Edited to add: She fell and broke her hip yet again on 9/6/14. Heavy sigh!

Just a reminder to keep your wishlist up to date...My info is up to date at BC Wishlist and at Cliff's wishlist.
I'm usually open to trading. It depends on my budget! Please journal any books received:)
I read almost anything. I don't read horror. I don't particularly like sci fi or romance unless it is just an exceptional book.

If I send you one (or more) of my books I consider it yours, to do with as you please (keep it, pass it on or release it...whatever seems right for that book :-)

Non-book likes:
Postcards, bookmarks, BC labels, wings extension for me or for other BCers, people who journal books, more hours in the day, coffee and tea, hearts, crocheting, sugar-free goodies, fountain pens and ink, anything handmade, and more postcards:)

A note for allergy sufferers--all of my books are in a non-smoking home at the moment. However, I buy most of them at thrift stores and have no clue as to the previous owners' habits. Also, I have a dog, a cat and a plethora of dust bunnies that stay inside.
