My icon was made for me by the wonderful polliwog. It says: Tikkun olam - repair the world.

Please read my current mailing policy:
Due to financial constraints I am currently unable to mail books, so unless you are offering postage (or some other arrangement), please do not ask! Your request WILL be ignored. I will, of course, continue to make wild releases, and am very happy to mail books for postage.

I am happily watching the progress of this ring: Emperor-Fool's book alteration ring

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Great Britain (Surrey; Kent), Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Wales (yeah, I know - but I'm counting it anyway. Gimme a break), United Arab Emirates

If it's listed as "permanent collection" that means I MAY be willing to share or bookring, but not release forever (go ahead, call me greedy...) Many of my Permanent Collection titles are vintage or antique books that would be difficult to replace if they were damaged or lost in their travels. I have been registering more of my "special" collections lately, such as my Holocaust titles, for very specific reasons. These kinds of books will almost certainly be permanent collection titles when I have finished reading them, but they are available for borrowing under certain conditions (even the TBR ones). If you see something that interests you, please feel free to ask!
I'm not accepting anything in trade right now because I have far too much to do. However, I will still be releasing.

A Warning!
I am a smoker. This means that, to a non-smoker, my books may still smell smokey because I smoked around them for too many years.
