I am a registered nurse. I love to read and just found out about bookcrossing in October 2007. Someone left a bookmark on my kitchen cabinet while I was on vacation. I still don't know who cause they won't "fess up". Now I'm hooked. One of my daughters is also an avid reader and she has joined the fun. I have four cats; Frankie and Michaels and "The Littles", Black & Gray, as well as several strays who stopped (and stayed) for a meal on their way to somewhere else.

I'm a coffee, tea, and hot chocolate drinker. I love to try new flavors. I am obsessed with tea towels, I just love them. I pick them up every place we go on vacation. Weird, huh?

I've started my grandson his own little collection of books. Robert Wulff arrived March 9, 2015, 8 pounds, 10 ounces. We call him the lil Wulffie. So naturally any little boy books would be greatly appreciated. He's 3 years old now and he loves his books!

I have really enjoyed catching books and setting them free. I like to read everything before I let it go, so sometimes it takes a while for my books to get back into the wild. I just got brave enough to sign up for some of the challenges and am having fun with that. I love the idea of RABCK. What a Great way to release books. If I have a book you want to read just let me know.

I got a new quote from Gwen at BOOKENDS, my favorite used book store, "There is no app to replace your lap! Read to your child." She didn't tell me where she heard it, but she it a retired librarian.

I love surprises. I can only read English, much to my dismay.
