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?)
