Welcome to ghir's Bookcrossing shelf. Willing to trade, make me an offer if you see something on my bookshelf that is available. Have designated some of my TBR as available; I will make a decision whether to trade without reading or read immediately if anyone expresses interest in one of those. (Don't even bother sending a message asking for a book without offering a trade or postage. That's selfish. Didn't your mama teach you anything?)

My wishlist for the tag game in the RABCK forum includes any book you would like to send to be placed in my building's library, where some of the books seem old and damaged. It could really use an infusion of new titles, especially general fiction, to replace some ancient romance and sci-fi pocketbooks. You may never hear from the book again, as that has been my experience with the books I have left.
