Terve! Hello! My address has been the same since 2006, so if you still have it, you can use it. If you're sending me a book outside EU, please use the little CN22 customs declaration form and mark your parcel as "gift". Thanks!

My favourite genre is speculative fiction. Mostly I read fantasy, science fiction, magical realism, mystery, thrillers, historical fiction... Best books are the ones which can't be labelled under just one genre (new weird!). Just to give you some names: J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde, Johanna Sinisalo, Emmi Itäranta, Becky Chambers, Siiri Enoranta, John Irving, Isabel Allende, Douglas Adams... Lately I've been interested in vampire stories and other supernatural stuff, especially urban fantasy. Although I read almost anything if it's well-written and the story is interesting, I'm not interested in chick-lit-romance or religious books.

I read in English and Finnish. If you have a book in easy/simple German, Swedish or Norwegian, I could give it a try. And if you happen to have a children's book with/about frogs in ANY language, I'd love to receive it! But beware: I probably want to leave it as PC if I don't have it yet. I also like frogs & toads in postcards, stickers and other stuff. I drink lots and lots of black spiced tea (not herbal drinks or rooibos), and enjoy chocolate every now and then. Short NO-NO: I'm sensitive to smells, so please don't send me anything perfumed or scented. Thanks.

I'm a fan of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series but most of my books are in Finnish. I was wondering that it would be great to start collecting them in English, too. So if you have a Discworld novel available, I'd be happy to add it to my permanent collection. I have these in English: 1. The Colour of Magic, 2. The Light Fantastic, 3. Equal Rites, 6. Wyrd Sisters, 7. Pyramids, 10. Moving Pictures, 13. Small Gods, 14. Lords and Ladies, 15. Men at Arms, 17. Interesting Times, 18. Maskerade, 20. Hogfather, 21. Jingo, 22. The Last Continent, 24. The Fifth Elephant, 25. The Truth, 26. Thief of Time, 29. Night Watch, 35. Wintersmith, 38. I Shall Wear Midnight.

Suomalaista synttäriryhmää varten: sammakot ja rupikonnat on miun juttu aina lastenkirjoista kortteihin ja tarroihin asti. Sammakkokirjoista vain pieni osa on BC-rekisteröityjä, mutta näistä muista on Soozreaderilla oma luettelo. BC-sammakkokirjat löytyvät pääsääntöisesti pysyväishyllystä. Korteissa tykkään myös Virkkukoukkusen väri-ilmiöstä ja Tenavista - ja kortti oikeasti riittää! Salmiakkia ja mustaa maustettua teetä kuluu kiitettävästi, tee enimmäkseen irtoteenä. Pidän myös lukuvinkeistä - kerro suosikkikirjoistasi! EI KIITOS: kaikki hajustetut jutut.

If you see something interesting in my BC shelf, don't hesitate to contact me! It doesn't have to be available, TBR is fine, too - I'm just happy if books will find a new reader.

Books registered by me have traveled to: Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Estonia, Finland, France, Gambia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom and USA.
