Extended Profile
Hi! I am lit-fandango, and my screen name reveals a book fan who also enjoys movies.

I was married 40 years to a great guy -- sadly he died of cancer July 2010. I'm blessed with four adult kids and ten grandchildren, seven girls and three boys, from 21 months to 13 years old.

In the fall of 2002, I returned to college after 35 years, graduating in May '05 with a degree in -- what else?-- literature! I concentrated on creative writing and hope to have my own work published and registered here someday.

About Requests and Trades (U.S. only)
I moved to a smaller house, released or otherwise shared many books, and had some trouble keeping up with bookcrossing entries. There may be books on my BC bookshelf that I no longer have, but I will honor requests if I can.
