I have been a BookCrosser since September 11, 2009. I started doing it so I could get rid of some of the books that I knew I wouldn't want to read again. Slowly, but certainly, however, my house is filling up with "BookCrossing books" - books I specifically got for bookcrossing. Most of them are books I got for free or for a very small price.
My favourite author of all time is P.G. Wodehouse. I cannot read him enough, I probably have read all the books I have by him at least 4-5 times. He is a skilled stylist, he masters the English language superbly. My favourite novels by him are the Jeeves & Wooster series and the Blandings Castle series.
If you want to surprise me with something, motherof11 has my address.
I love this quote by Terry Pratchett:
"The truth is that even big collections of ordinary books distort space, as can readily bbe proved by anyone who has been around a really old-fashioned secondhand bookshop, one that looks as though they were designed by M. Escher on a bad day and has more stairways than storeys and those rows of shelves which end in little doors that are surely too small for a full-sized human to enter. The relevant equation is: Knowledge = power = energy = matter = mass; a good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read."
