Wow, it's been months since I update this. I've been so busy and am only getting busier. I am moving my stuff back to Minnesota at the end of next month, then I may be teaching overseas in the spring. I'll know later this month for sure. Because of this
uncertainty I have cancelled all future participation in bookrings/rays. I just can't commit any time in the near future. Also, I may not be able to comply with request for books from my "available" list as they will be sadly in storage.
I may, on the other hand be trying to release some books in the near future just to get them off my hands.
The following rings/rays I've organized are open!
Sense and Sensibility-Hardcover(North America only)
Year of Wonders (open)
The Bonesetter's Daughter (open)
Legends 1, Short Novels by the Masters of Science Fiction

Hi, My taste in books is heavy Victorian, and heavy sci-fi/fantasy. George Eliot/Philip Pullman/Jane Austen/Anne McCaffrey. Lately, I've been reading a lot of fantasy short story compliations, especially those written by women. However, I do venture out of my shell occasionally, usually on recommendations from friends.
