Several years ago I let a family friend, a young man, move into my home. Eventually I had to part ways with him due to his drug use. It wasn't until about a year later, when the first of several books that went missing showed up at a Half Price Books, that I realized he must have taken them and sold them. There have been four so far that were bought and then journaled. Sad about it, but I guess I'm glad the books are eventually turning up rather than having been thrown out or something.

If you're looking to trade or interested in something on my shelves, please note I moved into a new house and a lot of my books are still in boxes or in my storage unit and may not be easily accessible.

I have a Facebook page for my blog. I'm also on Goodreads if anyone wants to friend me there!

I will read just about anything and everything, though I tend to lean towards romance more than anything else. I love finding old books at thrift stores, published in the 50s, 40s, 30's. I am always willing to trade a book on my shelf for something on my wish list, or if you have something you think I would like, I'm open to suggestions - I've discovered some great authors that way. I don't mind reserving my TBR books and will move those books up in the pile, but still with the understanding that it may be a few weeks before I get the book read and sent out, depending on how many ring/ray books I get and/or how many I already have reserved and/or how many review books I have waiting. However, keep in mind that I am very anal about reading series books in order, so if it's part of a series and I don't have all the books ahead of it I may have to decline your request.

One of my goals for 2022 is to pass on books that I've received from other BookCrossers, so I'm trying to making it a priority that one in every four books I read is an already BookCrossed book, unless I have a review book waiting, as those must always come first. If you sent me a book and you feel like it has been languishing in my TBR pile for too long, shoot me a PM and tell me so (but don't get nasty about it) and I'll make a point to move it up in the pile, and then pass on. My TBR pile is pretty big and I don't want anyone to feel like I'm hoarding their books.

I try to respond to all PMs within two or three days whether I can send what you want or not. So if you don't hear back from me, for some reason I may not have gotten your message and feel free to send it again! Or you can email me directly at robinisreynolds at gmail dot com.
