I joined Bookcrossing in 2003 after I'd read an article in a newspaper, and then promptly forgot all about it! At the beginning of 2005 I found a wild-released book and I've been bookcrossing ever since.

Every so often I start a book, only to find after a couple of chapters that I've already read it, so I've decided to keep a list of books I've read.

For NSS purposes:
I am diabetic, so nothing sweet or sugary, please.
Some suggestions - Bookcrossing supplies, store-bought or homemade
Interesting teas (not fruity flavoured or sweetened)
Nuts(plain or salted) , especially macadamias (no peanuts)
Scented candles
Hand cream
