Update January 2017 - finally got my shelves updated after moving house in June 2016 and donating a lot of books to the charity shop. I'm pretty confident now that if something's listed as TBR or AVL that I do have it, although I think I've got a few unregistered books lurking on the shelves...

I was active on bookcrossing from 2004 - 2006 and then came back to bookcrossing in 2011 after an extended break in which I studied for a Masters among other things.

I'm quite a compulsive reader and I buy a lot of charity shop books. I go through phases and right now I'm reading a lot of crime fiction (helping me with the States challenge - I'm unashamedly addicted to Lee Child's Jack Reacher series). I don't particularly enjoy romances or science fiction - my shelves do sometimes reflect books that have been given to me for wild release as well as my own choices!

I've given up on updating my wishlist, as I'm so hopeless at it. Sorry.
