I live near Newcastle Australia and have always been an avid reader, though over the years a busy life raising 3 children often got in the way of a good read. Now my children are grown I have a renewed interest and love many different kinds of books, from memoirs, travel, mystery to a good old fluffy chic lit.

I was introduced to Bookcrossing by my sister Blundery and I enjoy being a part of the community and sharing well read books.
