Okay, I've gotten way behind on my bookcrossing. My house is now full of great books that I need to read, and through Bookcrossing I have rid my house of all the books I HAVE read, so I am stepping out of the trade/rabck etc thing while I catch up. As I read them, I will slowly release the books I have (because I certainly don't have the space to keep them!). Unfortunately, since I started taking courses in my free time, most of my reading seems to be academic, so it may be some time before all these great books get read and re-released!

This is an awesome site!
I'm 32 years old and though I'm originally from Montreal, have lived in Victoria for 9 years. I'm in the Canadian Navy and have travelled all over the world. In 2002 I went on a seven month deployment and brought a box of books with me (most of which I read!) I went to Thailand, Malaysia, Saipan, UAE, Hong Kong, Hawaii...Oh.... if only I had known about Bookcrossing then, I could have released books in every port!
I have a four and a half year old daughter and other than travelling and reading, my other interests are folk music, gardening, and sports...HOCKEY in particular (in fact, a huge amount of my free time is spent on the ice--there's really no better life!). So if there are any other Bookcrossing hockey chicks out there, I'd love to hear from you!
