I don't even know where to start!

I am married to my high school sweetheart and the mother of two adrable little boys (10-02 and 11-05). I have a degree in interior architecture and I am an interior designer in an educational (PK-12) architecture/design firm. In my free time (ha ha) I love to scrapbook, knit and/or read.
****************************************************************************

Books listed as 'Released in Wild' on my bookshelf truly are released in the wild. I do NOT list my controlled releases in this manner.

As of 04/12/05, 3 out of 33 'Wild' books have been found. YEA!!!
That's 9.09% for you mathematicians!

****************************************************************************

I run two reading groups on yahoo, one for moms and one that anyone can join. I invite you all to come join one or both. Please, only mommies join the moms group. Following is info about each of them...

"Momswholovetoread"

Click here for Momswholovetoread!

Here we read one book every three months but we have several filler books in case the discussion dies. This is a new group so we are still ironing the kinks out but so far we are having a great time! Our reading schedule is as follows:

September 2005 -

UPDATED May 17, 2005

I have decided to start a list of Bookcrossers who are not welcome to participate in my bookrings until they send on the books that they are currently holding of mine. I am tired of being screwed out of books and I don't believe that the other participants should have to suffer either.
