I haven't actively participated in Bookcrossing in quite a while now. As I come across bookcrossing books that are still in my possession I'm trying to read them and wild release them. A few years ago I moved back and forth across Texas into smaller and smaller abodes. I tried to wild release a metric ton of books and in my haste to do so I didn't make journal entries on the vast majority of them, so my shelves are completely in disarray. I'm immensely sorry if that upsets any of the folks that were kind enough to share with me. Note: I am not in arrears on any rings, rays, nor do I owe anyone any books that I know of, if you believe that is not the case, and feel that I owe you books, please message me and I will handle it.
My hobbies include reading, messing around on the computer, playing World of Warcraft (For the Horde!), reading, knitting, cross-stitch, reading. Did I mention reading?
I've always been a reader, my favorite genres are science fiction, fantasy and horror. But I'll give almost anything a try, especially if it is recommended to me. I think life is too short to read books I don't like, so I go by the fifty page rule. If it hasn't captivated me by then, I put it down and move onto something else. Sometimes I'll try again, sometimes not. I also compulsively buy books, so Bookcrossing is both a blessing and a curse. I release and release, but I never seem to substantially reduce the TBR pile.
There's a thrill that comes with the truly wild release, but there's also the pang of knowing your beloved book might become part of a land fill. I don't generally release books that other people have registered on the trading sites, unless I received them from there, since I know some folks don't like the idea.
I almost never remember to bring ready to release books with me, until after I get somewhere and think - "this would be a great release spot!"

Nothing official at this time. Mostly to read what I have in the house so I can get more out of storage.
My wishlist is constantly in flux, I use it to keep a record of everything I have an interest in reading. I refer to it when placing online book orders, print it out when I go to Half Price Books, and when checking out the library.
While I honestly, sincerely and truly appreciate receiving RABCK's from my wishlist, and I promise that I will read and pass them on eventually, I really and truly have no expectation that by posting a wishlist I will receive anything from it from anyone other than myself.
As far as books registered by me, well, once they are out of my hands they no longer belong to me. So feel free to keep, read, trade, release, or do anything you like with them. It's all part of the journey.
Most rings will be passed along within two weeks of receipt. I read them in the order they arrive, and they will take precedence over trades.
