Extended Profile
I love to read historical romance, true crime, historical fiction and non-fiction and also biography. If you are interested in a book that is available I will gladly send it to you or if you would like to do a trade. If a book is listed as tbr (to be read) I haven't read it yet and may put it in my permanent collection, please go ahead and pm be though so I know your interested.I will then start reading that book right away. It maybe very well that I make it just available after I am done reading it. My reserved books are ones that I am doing for my challenge for 2005, or have been requested by other bookcrossers. Please look to see if there is a journal entry noting that it has been requested. If it has not you are welcome to pm me and I may reserve it for you, once I am done reading it, & decided if I would like to put it in my permanent collection or not.
