My mother found this photo of me when I was 10 years old. I thought it was an appropriate photo for my Bookcrossing profile since I'm holding a huge stack of books!" target="_blank"> width=124 height=175 border=0 alt="The WeatherPixie">

Books I like to read:

This is a good overall view of what I enjoy reading:

Travel journey books: I esp. enjoy those set in Australia, Eastern Europe, or places that are not the usual tourist attractions.
Guinea pigs: Not the basic pet care type (except for Peter Gurney) but anything where a guinea pig is a character in the story
Hobbies: Any book on entering sweepstakes/competitions and people who win them. I am also somewhat interested in such books about the lottery, even though I don't play the lottery.
Fiction: I'm not much of a fiction person, although anything in the above categories is likely going to catch my eye, although I've been known to enjoy a cozy mystery now and then.
Nonfiction/self-help: I like positive thinking books or books on the premise that changing one small thing can make huge changes in your life.
Children's books: I like books written recently by my favorite childhood authors. I recently discovered the "Dear America" series, and like those. I also like Newberry award books.

I enjoy reading, entering sweepstakes, hitting garage sales, traveling, and my three guinea pigs. I collect scented stickers. (Yes, I'm a child of the 80s!)

Green Tea...
You are Green Tea!
Strong and very smart you prefer peace to violence
and very rarely take action if it involves
confrontation. But you make up for this with
your keen insight and understanding of the
world and people around you, you have a very
mysterious nature. Many people see you as laid
back and that may be true but you are very
intelligent and make good decisions.

What type of Tea are you? {-With Anime Pictures!-}
