I had a long break from BookCrossing, but have started again in 2020. I'm not sure why the long break, to be honest, but this is still such a good idea. During a declutter bootcamp earlier this year I realised that a lot of the books living on my shelves will probably never be re-read and I decided to start re-homing them to make room for the books I really love. New books that I've bought and read and also don't fall in love with now get registered and released, hopefully to someone who will enjoy them more. I’m excited to start releasing books again and getting involved in the BookCrossing community.

As well as paperbacks and hardbacks, I read a lot of books on my Kindle and listen to audiobooks. I often read books from award lists, e.g. Women's Prize for Fiction; Hugo Award; Nebula Award; Booker Prize. If I register books these days, it's usually because I intend to release them. This means my bookshelf doesn't accurately reflect my reading taste; my wishlist is more my thing.
