I have always been a bit of a bookworm and come from a family who is forever swapping books. I love the idea of book crossing as I never know what to do when I am at the end of the line, now I do. This is how I work my bookshelf:

TBR - I do intend to read these books, I am willing to send them out and will bump them up the pile following requests
AVL - Are available for sending
PC - none of my books will be set as this
RES - they are either part of a bookring/ray or have already been promised to someone else

My favorite books are:
The Hobbit, Memoirs of a Geisha, Ella Minnow Pea, Sleepers.

My other interests include horse riding, photography, gardening, going to theatre (particularly musicals), and spending time with friends, family and my cats. During the summer I volunteer once a week for Kesteven Rideability, which I find very rewarding and absolutely love, I'm still trying to convince my husband that going part time at work is a good idea so I can spend more time with this very worthwhile charity.

I love anything horse, cat or owl related. Hate white chocolate or fruit in chocolate. Love lazing in the bath and spending time in my garden.

You can also find me on goodreads, I'm the same name as I am here but with a picture of our black cat and not our tabby who we unfortunately lost earlier this year.

I love lists and am working my way through the below - good job there is a lot of cross overs!!
BBC big read top 200 = 183 (91.50%)
Telegraphs 100 Novels = 72 (72%)
1001 books: Original = 290 (28.97%) - 2008 list = 253(25.27%) - 2010 list = 252 (25.17%)
combined list = 326 (25.08%)

I am also trying to work my way through the Discworld series (in order!) and have read thirty five, I have a few holes in the collection though and you can find any missing ones on my wish list, I will always exchange if you have any that fill the gaps.

I have read books from the following countries
