Another please note - those books I had marked as released at the Northampton Uncon were not, as our car broke down the night before. So they are still available! However I do not feel up to going through boxes of the 100 books to mark that on each one, so their status will remain unchanged until I do something else with each one, or they may just end up being released elsewhere but with the wrong details, in which case my apologies in advance.
My hair used to be dark, and the nicest way to describe me is 'cuddly'. I am in love with the most utterly gorgeous man in the world, fellow bookcrosser Diomedes - we met through bookcrossing! He is truly marvellous, he copes not only with me, but with my three children (one still at home) as well. Update - we're engaged! (that was several years ago - we are still engaged.) I love reading - especially fantasy/science fiction, although anything that will let me escape to my own space for a while is grist for the mill.
I haven't read all of the books that I release; many have been acquired by one means or another simply to release them and spread the joy of bookcrossing. Caffcaff, Molyneux, Rivercassini, LongNeckBooks, and others have helped in this, as have charity shops and library sales. Releasing is almost as addictive as reading. Books that have passed through my hands can now be found all over the world.
I chose my screen name because I've always wanted to be/befriend a dragon, and I found this site through finding the book "The Dragon Knight" by Gordon R. Dickson.
I occasionally ring or ray, am not averse to trades, like to wild release (with very limited success), and am as big a fan of RABCK as a broke mum of three can be. NB I have not read all the books available on/released from my shelf, as there just isn't time, and Mt Toobie moves slowly, so loans can be arranged! Books are likely to be 'decorated' with the odd cat hair - we have four great kitties, a ginger and white girl, a calico (my birthday present from 2008!), a tuxedo boy (my early Christmas present for Christmas 2011), and a tortoiseshell the same age as the tuxedo,so whatever I wear their fur is visible on me.
I am very sad to update this profile which used to read five great kitties. Our lovely tabby and white girl, Jetta, sadly passed away due to a third recurrence of her cancer along with an aging heart and the start of diabetes. She was seventeen when she passed and had given us thirteen years of absolute delight, and still had the loudest purr to the end.
I have decided to stop counting my wild catches. It's averaging something below 10%, with the longest delay so far being 11 years and 6 months. That last statistic I will update as necessary!
Do not trifle with Dragons, for you are small and crunchy and taste good with ketchup
