I love to read - always have since I was young, I guess that's why I'm here!
I found my first book-crossing book in my work's lost property quite a few years ago now. Loved the idea. I registered all my books the same week I joined, and have been hooked ever since!
Admittedly I don’t contribute to bookcrossing as much as I have in the past. Sadly, it seems to be a dying thing and little free libraries have almost made it obsolete. Maybe that’s a good thing. It gets more people reading and it keeps the released books safer!
I tend to release my books into the lfl’s now and admittedly I often don’t bother to number them anymore. My journal rate was very low anyhow, so I’ve lost incentive. If I’m going to a meet up or sending to a book crosser, I’ll do it. Otherwise not so much.
I still love the idea of bookcrossing and I still use my page to keep track of which books I have already got or read😂
I do look at the forums from time to time and it’s not unheard of that I might do the odd rabck. I am definitely open to getting back into it more, but currently postage is super expensive overseas and quite unreliable too with COVID delays etc.
About me on the off chance I do particulate in a Xmas exchange etc (I have in the past and enjoyed them): I love dogs and music (Carly Rae Jepsen, David Bowie, Taylor Swift, Japanese and citypop). I love visiting Japan (not that that’s happened lately) and movies and I’m having a moment with retro looking (think 70’s) florals and fashions.
I am studying Japanese and I collect Japanese fiction (translated, I can’t yet read a book in Japanese sadly. I hope one day I can). I like suburban thrillers and some crime novels, for example Sophie Hannah’s. I’m not really into romance and YA and I really don’t enjoy mum-lit or war stories.
I am around, so I can be contacted. Trades within Australia are still open to me. Overseas, feel free to ask, but might potentially be a no unless it’s one I’ve planned for.
My wish list is kept up to date.
