Happy Bookcrossing!

I live in St. Petersburg, FL with my husband, Michael. I am a retired nurse, and I've been happily married since 1976. One of my favorite leisure pastimes is reading. My whole family loves to read and we have always had a lot of books in our home. I love books and coffee, (there will be both in my heaven) and I love Bookcrossing! I also love to sing, and enjoy singing karaoke online at

I also enjoy meetups with other Bookcrossers.

Here is how I interpret the 1-10 rating system:

1 - Good fuel for the fireplace on a cold winter's day. I wouldn't want to throw it away because someone might see it in the trash, think it looks good, and waste some of their life reading it. Hated it, hated it, hated, hated, hated, hated it. Hated it.

2 - Worth throwing away.

3 - May have some nice cover art - a book that you can decorate a table with - but what's on the inside is crap.

4 - Didn't really like it, but would release it, hoping that someone else might like it.

5 - Undecided whether I liked it or not.

6 - Liked it, but wouldn't necessarily recommend it to everyone. A guilty pleasure might fall under this category.

7 - Liked it very much and would recommend it as a good read.

8 - Loved it and really want to share it.

9 - Spread the word - this is a "Don't miss".

10 - One of the best books ever written. The Crème de la Crème.
