Welcome to my bookshelf---updated May 2010

I have always loved reading, it's something I do every day and Bookcrossing makes it more enjoyable--releasing books for others to enjoy, reading the journal entries, sending RABCKs to readers in other countries as well as being surprised with a RABCK ,the forum threads,book reviews, discovering books I hadn't thought to read, I've learned so much. I have hundreds of books, many I reread years later to find something I didn't get with the first reading. I can look at my bookshelf and see the decades of my life. I haven't registered my PC, only the books I plan to use for Bookcrossing. In the spirit of Bookcrossing if you see a book that you'd like on my AVL list pm me and I'll see about getting it to you. Happy Bookcrossing!
Thanks to the generous Bookcrossers who have given me wings, allowing me to fly,helped me with computer skills to fix up my bookshelf, read my home page to learn about Hemochromatosis, sent me books,bookmarks, labels, bookstrings, cards, notes and other surprises and included me in their rings and rays and filled some holiday wishes of mine in 2006,2007, 2008,2009,and 2010.
If you visit my page please sign my guestbook, It's interesting to see where other Bookcrossers are from. Thanks" target="_blank">Free" width="88" height="31">

My Birthday RABCK Buddy for 2009 is hearththumper [Thanks to for organizing this]

I've traveled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks
All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books.
