I like and enjoy Bookcrossing more than ever! Bookcrossing is not only an interesting community - this community is fascinating! I have a lot of nice contacts - some from just a few doors away, others from the other end of the world... I wouldn't miss them anymore! I am a Swiss citizen and presently live in Tuebingen, Germany.
