I've been an active reader most of my life, though there has been non-active reading periods for various reasons. I heard about BC from my Portuguese penpal, Mady and finally decided to join. Currently living the rush years means there are times when I simply don't have time to read as much as I'd like to. But when I have the time, I enjoy grabbing a book as much as I've always had.

My wishlist certainly is long, but I prefer seeing it more like a reminder for myself of books that sound interesting than a tasklist for next few years. As a special-needs parent I sometimes forget to update my wishlist even if I try my best to keep it tidy. In case you notice a book still on my wishlist even if it's already in my bookshelf, I would really appreciate, if you let me know!

If you're unsure of pm's reaching me, please email me directly at

My statistics:
Wild releases: 637
Catches: 140
Catch rate: 22 %

"Released in the wild" in BC stats shows a different number, as at early stage of my BC career I made release notes for 4 books even though I gave them in controlled releases.

The bookrings/bookrays I have organized:
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella (bookray, open)
Unless by Carol Shields (bookray, finished)
