Please note: I don't partipate in bookrings, bookrays or bookboxes.

I think this is a great site! I used to read a lot when I was younger, but then (because of school work, and regular work) started to read much less. Since becoming a member, I've read more in a couple of months than during the last 10 years, which I think is great!! Happy reading to everyone.

The books I register are all to be read and released. I usually release them in the wild, but if you're interested in one of them, please PM me to work out a trade or a RABCK, and I'll move them up on my TBR list (beware: I'm not a fast reader!).

On December 11 2004, the first Bookcrossing Euregio-Meeting was held in Maastricht. We had a great time, with Bookcrossers from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and even the USA! I wrote an article about it, where you can also find some pictures.
