As libraries are under threat here I've significantly increased my library usage. I'd recommend this to all UK Bookcrossers. Library books are marked "lib" in the list below. Unfortunately this means that my TBR pile is reducing very slowly. Apologies if you've passed a book to me and I've yet to write a review. If you'd like to see something move faster PM me.
I've been an avid reader all my life moving from reading library books under the bedclothes to openly reading the books I just can't stop buying.
Joining BookCrossing has expanded my reading from the comfortable rut I'd settled in. Recommendations, rings and rays have increased the number of books I read and exposed me to material I'd never have bought in the past (and I've developed a charity shop habit I didn't have until I joined BC).
My shelf contains a lot of my Permanent Collection. These books aren't available for release, rings or exchanges, at the moment. I don't buy books specifically to release, so my shelf will give you an idea of my tastes in reading, apart from the odd box of books from fellow bookcrossers to keep the shelves of the Cambridge and Ipswich Caffe Nero OBCZ's topped up.
