Birthday and Christmas Wishlist: I have a lot of books on my wishlist but frankly I have a ginormous amount of books on Mount TBR. I would appreciate a book on my wishlist though and if you do send me one, I do promise to get around to reading it someday. If you live overseas, please don't mail me a book if the cost is exorbitant. I no longer mail books overseas because the prices are ridiculously high.
There are a lot of things that I like. I have always loved cats but now I love dogs because I have a fantastic little dog who has stolen my heart. I still have a beautiful young tabby-cat who is quirky and lovable. (The original tabby cat is no longer with me.) I also like birds, mountains, the seashore, flowers, vintage things, antiques, little things, handmade things, and the colors blue and green. I love chocolate, marzipan, cake and ice cream.
Personal Challenge: To increase the number of countries where my bookcrossing books have traveled. The books must be registered on bookcrossing by me. If you are interested in reading about how my books got there, please look at "Tabby-cat-owner's Around-the-World-personal challenge parts 1-3" on my bookshelf. They are part of my permanent collection.
