I love to read! What more can I say... It has never failed me that when I find others who do... I have found friends! This is such an awesome site... I have never believed in holding onto my paperbacks... I read them to find the ones I am going to buy
in hardback one day, to fill that long-dreamed about reading room... in that long-dreamed about home of mine... one day. After I am done with them I usually pass them onto friends or give them to a discount store - this site has changed that for me! I am very
excited about connecting up with other BookCrossers, or soon to be BookCrossers, so I am going to stock my "bookshelf" with the books which are literally sitting on my shelves waiting for me to finish them (it is quite diminished at the moment, for I have
given all the others away)... however, now their fate seems a little brighter to me because I very rarely discover what has become of them... or who has had the pleasure of experiencing the treasure held within after they are gone! If you see something on
my shelf of interest... catch me early (email@example.com)... and I will see that you get it instead of sending on that incredibly described journey into the wild!!! (that just gave me goose-bumps!!!)
"Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, "Lighthouses" as the poet said "erected in the sea of time." They are companions, teachers,magicians, bankers of the treasures
of the mind, Books are humanity in print."
