Welcome to my Bookshelf!

Once upon a time, many years ago, I was an active, enthusiastic member here (from 2003 to 2008), particularly loved participating in rings and rays. Unfortunately, due to a change in personal circumstances, everything changed... I am now in a better place, recently retired and looking forward to joining in all the fun of Bookcrossing - I feel like a newbie lol (April 2017) !
Greetings from the heart of the English countryside!
I love reading of course, I tell you, it's like a library here, books wherever you look: our room, in the dining room and lounge!
I'm 52 years old and travelling is my second passion. Have visited Amsterdam, Dublin, Cork, numerous Greek islands, Lisbon, Valencia, Madrid, Florida, Paris, Bergamot, Palma, Tunisia, Tobago and Cyprus.
Anybody looking for a penpal, feel free to contact me!
