I ended up having to have surgery and I am not allowed to drive yet, typing hurts (everything hurts) and I am taking pain meds and sleeping while my wings shrivel up and fade away :(
If you have sent me a message and I have not replied yet, I will... I promise.

I love meeting new friends (& new books)

I am loving bookcrossing & I have met some really great people here already

I enjoy trading books & controlled releases as well as releasing into the wild.

I have already met some wonderful members here.
It is such a great feeling to receive a RABCK- thank you so much to those of you who so generously make another person's day :D
(I am planning my first one soon- :)

I received my first ever surprise RABCK!!
Wow! How good that makes a person feel?? It's not just receiving a wish list
book, but also the thought and effort behind doing that! (Thank you, GorgeousGlo!!)
