Hello fellow book junkies! I am an avid reader, and a huge horror fan. My reading tastes are varied, but most of the time, you will find me reading horror, LGBTQ fiction, and bizzaro/weird fiction.
Read my Bookcrossing blog by clicking here.

A little about me, I'm 46, live in the Tampa Bay, Florida area.

I'm all over the web, but mostly can be found on Twitter, handle @bigbookgeek

And, if you have a sense of humor, check out my Runaway Bride Releases at the 7-11 where she made her 9-1-1 call!

I am currently reading Any Way the Wind Blows by E. Lynn Harris

I love a good BC event or project! I have organized three biggies in my area so far.

In October 2007, we released hundreds of books at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! See catches here!

In November 2007, we gave nearly 100 books to 4 Support, a local charity that distributes items to children in area hospitals. And in September 2008 I gave them an additional 169 books! I will be collecting and giving books to them on a semi-regular basis now.

In June 2008, we set up a Bookcrossing table at Albuquerque Pridefest! Had a great time, and managed to give away 173 books! See journal entries here!
