I love the idea of bookcrossing. I've been an avid reader all my life, I love to be surrounded by books. At the moment I'm trying to register all my books, PC and all, on here but it's going to take quite a while to get done!

I'm happy to trade books (avl books), my wishlist is on www.bcwish.cliff1976.net/sunflowergirl



I used to see books reviewed that really appealed to me but then when I went shopping I could never remember what they were. Now I add all the books that catch my eye to my wishlist above; it's so nice to have this list. I do enjoy trading books with other bookcrossers. Note to my NSS partner please don't be put off by how long my wishlist is, as I've just said above it's as much a note to myself as anything else. I do keep my wishlist completely up to date.

Books I've read in 2007 (Total: 90 - I read so much in 2007 but a lot of what I read was essays and journal articles for university and so hasn't counted towards my total. This is why I'm now counting pages as well as books as then my totals will better reflect how much I actually read!)
