I heard about bookcrossing Nov 2005, skippy-humbug told me about it whilst out to dinner with Dining Circles, it sounded my sort of thing - so I joined.

Quite an ordinary middle-aged woman who loves to read. I'm not a fussy reader, as my bookshelf shows. I don't show my pc as think a waste of space on here, I'll give almost any book a try, but if I hav'nt got into it between pages 50 to 100 then that's it - it's off to find a new home.

When I joined I had boxes of books. Post children leaving home. divorce and two house moves (in that order)and bookcrossing gave me the opportunity of clearing the loft. Those events also gave me the time to return to the enjoyment of reading.
Since (clearing the loft) friends who don't want to become BXers donate books, I can't say I read them before moving them on.

I also can't pass by a Waterstones/WH Smith's/Charity shops (the latter of which this town has oodles) and always come out with a few, can you resist the 3 for 2 offers?,
So now I no longer have boxes, but nests of books, each with an eventual outcome, read, wild release,pass to a friend.
I also love to travel, with friends or on my own. My 2 children, their partners and my 3 young grandchildren, keep me on my toes.
Retired 31/3/08 Yipee and joined U3A which is wonderful.

Bookcrossing has introduced me to a lot of people worldwide and new friends - I love it
