If you live in South Africa and you're interested in one of my "to be read" or "available" books, let me know and I'll be happy to send it on to you once I'm done with it :)
A note on my wishlist: It is super long, I know, and contains many obscure titles. This is because I use it as a personal reminder of any and every book that I hear or read about that sounds interesting to me. It usually won't contain the sort of book that I can easily get hold of at the local library, but rather the sort of thing that would require a bit of hunting. As such, I am always very grateful for RABCKs from my wishlist! And in return, if you're interested in anything I have, please ask!
NOTE: Until the end of 2008 I was busy writing a Masters thesis. If I have one of your books in my possession and you're wondering why it isn't moving on: as of March 2009 I will be working through my TBR pile with a vengeance! Thanks for your patience.

I'm taking part in a few release challenges, bookrings and bookrays. I try to keep these down as I am writing a Masters thesis this year (2008) while working fulltime - it may seem as though I have abandoned the challenges, but in fact I've just had to postpone them till after I get my degree. As for the rings and rays, these books take priority over my other reading - once the books arrive I will make sure I get them read and out of the house ASAP.
