If you've come into the possession of a book I've registered, please know that it is now yours! I'm just as happy if you pass it on or if you keep it. I just want my books to be loved and find good homes! No pressure there!
A note about my bookshelf--I know my wishlist is long, so to clarify, it's not a gimme list, it's my way of keeping notes for myself about which books I'm interested in reading in the future. That said, I do keep it updated, and thanks to those who have sent me surprise RABCKs from it. I'm enjoying each of them!
I'm also working on entering in my books for my PC, possibly to release one day, as a way of recording what I have. Am I the only one who occasionally runs across books I didn't know I had?
Just for fun: while not a a specific challenge of mine, I noticed that I've made quite a few wild releases in airport areas...hope some of them check in soon!

I love this quote from the "Bookish Quotes" on the sidebar, it was too good not to copy down:
"Books to the ceiling Books to the sky. My pile of books Are a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard By the time I read them."
