Extended Profile
I'm a divorced single mum of one and a newly qualified midwife due to start my first midwifery post in January 2008. Books have always been a huge part of my life and since discovering bookcrossing have become totally hooked on it. I am very open to trades including international ones and if there's anything in my AVL or TBR pile that you fancy then please ask and I will either send it as a RABCK or a trade." title="Photo Sharing">" width="100" height="97" alt="one mother one midwife" />
