For those who wonder - I have no problem with a person keeping a book that came from me (providing it's not a ring or ray of course). It is yours to do with as you please - wild release, PC, ring/ray, trade, relay, or whatever. All I ask is that you PLEASE journal the book when you receive it; I really hate filling out those long parcel tracing forms at the post office.
I enjoy reading nonfiction - primarily history, biography, and science, with a few political and travel books thrown in for a change. I also read mysteries (mostly British) and science fiction. My selection of general fiction consisted mainly of British and Canadian authors, but I notice that I have been reading more authors from other countries since joining Bookcrossing.
Yes, I was one of those kids who would get into trouble for reading under the covers with a flashlight, but so did my mom when she was a kid, so why was she yelling at me?
I have had a library card for so long that one librarian commented on how low the card's serial number happened to be and how few blue cards she saw anymore (they are brown now). I must have had it since I was about age five, I think.
