I have gone inactive. I don't have time to do much bookcrossing anymore, but I still read a ton. I don't release much anymore, and most of my inventory here is stale. But feel free to PM me if you see a book you want and I'll check to see if I still have it. We moved and I had to downsize my bookshelf space considerably.

If you PM me, please be aware that I don't check my email very often on the weekends and in the evenings; I'm on the computer all day at work. Thanks!
