Who is Rukuba? Well, the original Rukuba can be found in the stories of the Nyanga people of the African Congo. She'll leave that bit of hunting up to you - quite the legend, if she may say so herself (avid dog-lover she is).

Rukuba the BookCrosser is a 21 year old student at Penn State University. With the aid of family, friends, and a high book-to-shelf ratio, all the books on Rukuba's bookshelf are up for release - no "waiting to be read" piles here.

In the area with a request? Rukuba prefers random releases to "controlled releases (handing or mailing the book directly to a specific person)" whenever possible. If you're local, she'd rather leave it someplace with a day's notice and let you enjoy the hunt and find - and the bit of chance that plays a part. If you're not local, she'd be willing to make other considerations if you ask nicely.

Rukuba created two labels for use in her books. One is a label for the book's front cover (or a post it on the cover) available here while the other is a label for the book's very last page, reminding the reader to release it again, available here. Both are formatted to print on Avery's 1" x 2 5/8" labels, and are distributed in MS Word format for easy editing. NOTE: The website address for these labels has changed. Please update any bookmarks. 03/2005

Any symbols before a book's name (such as *, ^, ! and so forth) were put there by whomever originally registered the book, and have absolutely no meaning regarding the book's status on Rukuba's shelf.
