"People disagreeing everywhere you look, makes you wanna stop and read a book." - Bob Dylan
Suffolk BookCrossers meet at CoffeeLink, Neptune Marina, Ipswich at lunchtime on the second Saturday of the month. Just look for the table with lots of books on.
I currently live in Ipswich but many of my releases were made when I lived in Essex and before that in Highland, Scotland.
The name 'Ardachy' comes from the name of the Bed and Breakfast my wife and I ran on the Black Isle in Highland Scotland at the time I discovered BookCrossing.
Thanks to swan-scot. who was instrumental in my discovering bookcrossing. I enjoy walking and cycling so I release books to picnic tables and benches on local walks and rides. I am happy to consider trading books where the status set by me is 'Available' or 'To be read' although you may have to wait a little longer for one of the latter.
The figure for wild releases is accurate as I did standard journal entries for books passed directly to anyone prior to the introduction of controlled release stats.
My Little Free Library is here.

You're I, Robot!
by Isaac Asimov
While you have established a code of conduct for many generations to
follow, your demeanor is rather cold and calculating. Brought up to serve humans, you
have promised never to harm them, to follow orders, and to protect yourself. Living up
to this code has proved challenging and sometimes even drives you mad. If you were a
type of paper, you would be pulp.
