I haven't actively participated in Bookcrossing in several years now. Life got in the way. I moved across Texas and then back. At one point I had to put most of my stuff into storage and then make the hard decision to get rid of about 75% of it because I just didn’t have the room or money. Many of my BC books got released into Half Price Books without journal entries. Hopefully, they are out there somewhere! I occasionally get a journal entry so I’m still hopeful! As a result, my shelves are wildly inaccurate and I have no idea what I do or don’t actually still have.
I sincerely apologize if this upsets any of the folks who were kind enough to share books with me. I’m not in arrears on any rings or rays, and I do not owe anyone any promised books that I’m aware of, I did manage to at least keep a handle on that!
I recently bought a house and am more settled AND discovered that there’s a Little Free Library right down the street so I’m hopeful to get back in the swing of wild releasing books.
My hobbies include reading, video games, knitting, and cross-stitch.
My favorite genres are science fiction, horror, some fantasy, and weird non-fiction. Honestly though, I’ll give just about anything a try, especially if it’s been recommended to me. I’ve been participating in some of the challenges on Goodreads where you receive a prompt and try to find a book to read that fits the goal. Mostly I just want to read what I want to read.
Currently I’m working my way through Stephen King, Octavia Butler, Harlen Coben, N.K. Jemisin, and Jonathan Kellerman.
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!"
As far as books registered by me, well, once they are out of my hands, they no longer belong to me. Feel free to keep, read, trade, release, or do anything you like with them. It's all part of the journey.
