I've started buying my books from Book Outlet instead of Amazon. I don't like the way Amazon takes advantage of publishers. And I was surprised at how many of my wishlist books were listed here!

Just a bit about me...
I travel any chance I get and release books as I go. I hunt for them, too, when the opportunity arises. Let's just say, Bookcrossing is included in every trip I take.

My house is overflowing with books. I learned about Bookcrossing from a small blurb in a USA Weekend article (I think) back in 2002 and thought it might be a neat way to pass along a few books that I didn't especially want to keep. At that point I was still hoarding books and couldn't bear the thought of parting with any. Twenty years later, I find that I have more books than ever even though I release books all the time. My house is still overflowing with books, but I don't really care. They keep me happy.

What kind of bookcrosser are you
Your Result: Obsessive releaser

You release, release, release. Discretion is not your middlename anymore. Buying grocery's, going to the dentist, a sunny day in the park, on holiday; every step you take, you take a book to go with you to be released.
