I'm no longer actively bookcrossing. Life caught up. Occasionally letting go of some books, though.

I list my bookrings at" target="_blank">The Bookring Directory! (Only the English books)
Please note that I do like my books to move on. It's ok if you're taking longer than one or two months, but please be sure to keep me informed by posting a new JE or sending me a PM. After about two months I will send a pm informing on your progress. It's just to make sure you haven't forgotten about my book and to keep the ring or ray moving.

Currently travelling rings/rays:
