About Me
I have a serious problem. I have a major book addiction!!! I still have a ton of unread books collecting dust in my office, but I keep buying more! I can't stop buying books - my office is nothing but floor to ceiling books, with only a portion listed on here. But every time I see something that calls to me or that I've been wanting I must have it! I need help!

I'm an avid reader and enjoy virtually every genre. I tend to focus on a particular genre for awhile then get bored of it and try another, but I always go back to previously visited genres. I enjoy comics, sci-fi, fantasy, dark fantasy, romance and horror with the occasional best selling fiction book thrown in. For non-fiction, I prefer political (liberal) and current events, self help, and new age.

I've been collecting books since high school (and reading since I was about 4 years old!) and spend a fortune every month on books from Borders, Amazon.com, eBay, Half.com, used book stores, comic book stores, and wherever I happen to be that I see an interesting book catch my eye. Consequently, I have a gazillion books at home collecting dust, many of which I intend to register on here to try to clear out some space. I have boxes and boxes I haven't unpacked from the last time I moved, and my bookcases are overflowing.

When I discovered Bookcrossing.com (in Creative Loafing, the local alternative newspaper that publishes in a few other places besides Atlanta,) I realized this was a great forum to trade books with fellow book fiends. (And hopefully cut down a bit on my monthly book expenditures!) I've only released 2 books in the wild (neither of which ever appeared on here again :( ) but I've traded several books with other Bookcrossing members and love the idea of sharing a book I've enjoyed with someone else who will hopefully enjoy it as well.

About My Bookshelf and Bookcrossing
Anything on my bookshelf that is marked available is up for grabs - feel free to contact me by private message to request a book - I generally prefer to trade for books so it helps if you have a selection of available books to offer in trade. Occasionally I will send a book without trade, however.

I generally prefer not to ship overseas due to financial constraints, but if you have something good to offer in trade, I will consider it.

My permanent collection is not available for trade or lending - I've lost too many favorite books over the years lending them out - so I keep the books I want to keep separate from those I don't mind giving away.

How I Rate My Books (borrowed from another Bookcrosser and tweaked!)
10: I loved this book! I couldn't put it down and will probably reread - can't say enough about it!
 9: Great book! I would have rated it a 10...except for 'one' tiny little thing...
 8: Good, solid book - would definitely recommend it.
 7: Good book I may or may not read again, but nothing to "write home about."
 6: Decent, entertaining read.
 5: So-so read. May or may not recommend it.
 4: This was boring or I couldn't get into it.
 3: This book has major problems. I would not recommend it.
 2: It's hard to imagine anyone liking this book...but that's just my opinion.
 1: Hated it. This book should never have been published because it's absolute garbage.
