If I have not answered your PM within 24 hours, I probably didn't receive it. Here is my email address. Obviously, you will have to take out the spaces for it to work. Putting "Bookcrossing" in the title will help me notice that it is not spam and ensure that I read it.

Check it out! Here are 3 links to articles I had published in the newsletter.
What a BC Coincidence!
Find a Sasquatch in the Woods


My Wish List

I enjoy trading with other Bookcrossers, but can only ship within the US and Canada. If I don't currently have wings, an offer to wing me in exchange for sending you a book or two would also be welcome.

My son and daughter also have their own BC shelves.

When I receive a release notice via email for a book that has been released in the wild nearby sometimes I like to "hunt" it just for fun. I have or will re-release all the wild catches I make whether I read them or not. I also like to leave a BC book of my own in place of the wild release I am picking up.
