I'm a book fiend. I love books. I'm a reader, a writer, an online Spiritual and Sci-Fi/Fantasy second-hand book retailer, a former book buyer for an independent store, a women born in the 1970s list owner on GoodReads, a former book reviewer for the Bookseller's Association of New Zealand, and .
kingfan30 hooked me up to Bookcrossing and I was sold on the idea.
I'm open to wishlist grants (giving when I have the postage, receiving, always) and random gifting if you're in the gifting sort of way. If you'd like my address to secretly send me anything, please PM my address buddy
Diane-Fraser to get my address. I'm more than happy to receive and send on BookCrossing journals too.

Note for OPPEM birthday group members:
I understand sometimes it is difficult getting Wishlist books to me from Europe and America. For this I have two suggestions:
1. If you're ordering through, when you click on a book's details you can see which warehouse the book can come from. Always pick 'UK' to ensure a book gets to me.
2. I always love supplies from the Bookcrossing Supply store (or gift certificates), just make sure to put in the notes that it is not for you, it is for tigergirlnz.

Re: Wishlist Tags, RABCKs, & Birthday Group ideas - Please note: My bookshelf does not necessarily indicate what I like, as I tend to bookcross books I'm often donated, or, books that others have in their wishlist. If you don't have a physical book I'm after in my Wishlist (no ebooks or audio books thanks), I'm willing, happy and grateful to receive:
BookCrossing Supply Store Supplies
Chocolate (Reese's Peanut Butter cups, Cherry Ripes, Cherry Bounty Bars, Fry's Turkish Delight, Lindt, Whittakers (especially the dark chocolate flavours), something Cherry flavoured from your country)
Soy Candle melts (I love Cherry, Black Raspberry Sugar, Sweet Orange, Vanilla, Lavender, and Pineapple in particular).
I'm also a stationery FIEND. I have a thing for pretty notebooks and purple inked pens. My favourite colour is purple...
My real name is Penny and I am searching for images/prints of Penelope waiting for Odysseus (like the legend/myth). Not Odysseus at all, just Penelope herself, waiting.
I also like pictures of Ravens (peaceful, noble, happy looking ones).
I like all sorts of things really, EXCEPT coffee and regular, caffeinated tea (which I don't drink and my country's post service isn't happy about being posted into the country anyway), and I'm sadly allergic to the scent of Roses. I do love Lavender and also Sandalwood, and Rosemary though :D
BookCrossing Supply Wishes include:
Book Plates in English, Book Release bags in English, Stickers, Stick notes, Re-Address labels, Bookmarks in English, Econo labels, Tote bags, Jewellery (BC Drop earrings, BC necklace), Wings etc. Anything that supports the BookCrossing Supply store makes me happy :D
