-surprise me

Aside from reading and bookcrossing, I'm interested in horses, traveling (the more exotic the better), penpalling, crochet, letting writing, watching movies and more.

For the time being, I will only send out books in exchange for postage or a book off of my wishlist.

My bookshelf doesn't reflect my reading tastes, as I purchase a lot of books just to release. Also, I can't help my long wishlist. I keep hearing about these amazing books so I add them. I don't expect to get any of them, but if I do, I'm always surprised. Only reference books would go in my permanent collection. The rest will move on once I've finished them. I try to bump the bookcrossed books ahead of the others in my to be read pile.

Stalled Bookrings I've started:
