15/05/05 MY FIRST CATCH!!!" height="40">" height="40">" height="40">" height="40">" height="40">

I am an avid Spike Milligan fan and I think I have most of his books. I believe I have now registered all the books I have at the moment (though I am still looking for them on Ebay, so may have the odd one or two to add from time to time)

In theory, all the Spike Milligan books I possess are on my bookshelf, but it may be better to ask me if you're unsure about a particular book.

All of my Spike Milligan books are part of my Personal Collection, so I am unlikely to want to lend them out, but you can always ask - I can only say no :o) Alternatively, if I come across another copy of a book in my PC, I will lend that copy out instead.

I also enjoy watching Football, Rugby League and Ice Hockey, and have an interest in animals, especially dogs :o)

In the past I used to play a sport called Sledge Hockey (which is the same as Ice Hockey, but played by people with disabilities). Although I had to stop playing because of a shoulder problem, I still like to watch and keep involved with what's going on with the sport. I used to play for the Cardiff Huskies Sledge Hockey Team.

I currently play Wheelchair Badminton (more as recreation at the moment). More information on Welsh Badminton is here.

Until now, I've forgotten to mention how fascinated I am by Volcanoes and the like. How could I forget Volcanoes!??? :o) I know that there are many books on the subject, some of which I have added to my wishlist:

If you see anything within my TBR pile that you'd like to read, as long as it's not part of someone's bookring or bookray (unless of course you're part of that same ring/ray), then just ask me about it - it costs nothing to ask :op I'm generally open to trades, RABCK's etc. International trades/RABCK's may be be subject to finances at the time, but ask anyway.

If at any time I'm in possession of a Ring/Ray book, and you're also part of that same ring or ray, and you'd like to read it sooner, please don't hesitate to ask me about it, and maybe I can pass it on to you before I read it. I'm by no means a fast reader, especially by BookCrossing standards. Please don't be afraid to ask or mention it. I *promise* I won't shout or be offended!:O)

At the present time, money is tight, so I'm trying not to sign up for too many rings or rays. Any rings or rays that I do join, I will be reluctant to post internationally, but I will try to make allowances where necessary. Obviously those rings/rays I've previously signed up for, I will honour the conditions in which I signed up to them.

I am also trying not to sign up for any more books at the moment, in order to reduce the number of bookring/bookray books that I have with me, and to eventually start on the many RABCK's which I've been lucky enough to have.

I'm also a member of BookCrossingUK, (where my screen name is Spike1972uk), a Yahoo Group made up of mainly UK BookCrossers, with a few overseas members too. Come and join us!
