I guess I’m not a BookCrosser by nature, because I find it very hard to let go of books that I love. Accordingly, my bookshelf doesn't reflect my taste in literature. Mostly, you'll find mysteries there because they are easy to part with. I'm working on the rest – and I’m happy to say I’m making progress.

For the time being, due to staggering postage fees in the Scandinavian countries, I don't participate in book rays or rings, and I can't offer to trade books across national borders. Hopefully this will change when I'm no longer a student.




Train Project:
I'm undertaking a small BookCrossing experiment:

I have collected train books; that is books that have the word “train” (as in the noun, not the verb) in the title, or books where a train journey is important to the plot or the theme. I’m sending them, one at a time, perhaps a week apart, on a train journey. They’ll be released on the train from Trondheim to Oslo (in Norway), marked with the usual BC- stickers, but also with a sticker naming the book’s final destination, asking any readers or non-reading finders to release the book on a new train going in the right direction (and hopefully register it as well), towards Athens in Greece or Cadiz in Spain, as far south in Europe as possible.

You are a GRAMMAR GOD!


Congratulations! If your mission in life
is not already to preserve the English tongue,
it should be. You can smell a grammatical
inaccuracy from fifty yards. Your speech is
revered by the underlings, though some may
blaspheme and call you a snob. They're just
jealous. Go out there and change the world.
