Hey there! I have been a member of Bookcrossing for over 6 years now. I just moved to Northern California! I love to read! I love books! I am a total Bibliophile! The first thing I do when I enter someones home is look at their books. I can talk books for hours and hours. When I found out about I thought that it was the best idea that I have ever come across. I couldn't wait to find and release books!

I have a rather large "to be read" list and another stack of books that need good homes. If you are interested in any of the books on my AVL list or my TBR list or you have something on my wishlist that needs a new home please let me know and I am sure we can work something out.

My bookshelves are packed with a lot of sci-fi and fantasy books which is mostly what I read, but seriously I read just about anything!

My Favorite authors are: Barbara Kingsolver, Octavia Butler, Simon R. Green, Christopher Moore, and Janet Evanovich.

I also read American graphic novels like Marvel & DC comics.WonderWoman, X-men, Batman, and Hellboy are among my favorites. I love to travel and love movies and puppies!

I am also on:
Shelfari (under the name Pinkbookdragon)
Postcrossing (under the name Pinkbookdragon)
Goodreads (under the name Pinkbookdragon)
