I like to pass my BC books onto other BCers who I know will read and enjoy them (and hopefully pass them on). However, I can't afford overseas postage very often (only on special occassions or if the book can be passed off as a letter).

Usually I take the books I've finished along to meetup. If no one is interested in a book and it sits on my bookshelf for a long time it then gets released into the wild.

Authors I love:
Isobelle Carmody, Jane Austen, Douglas Adams, David Eddings, Terry Pratchett, Anne McCaffrey, Marion Keyes, Katherine Kerr, Charlotte Bronte, Tamora Pierce, Kathy Reichs, Mercedes Lackey, Minette Walters, Margaret Atwood, Tracy Chevalier, Barbara Kingsolver, Garth Nix, Anita Shreve, Jodi Picoult
