Right in the middle of property settlement with ex - have no money and completely stressed out of my mind so I have been and may be for a while yet not too good at all bookcrossing activities - including returning messages. If you have a bookring of mine that you need to send back to me, if I don't get back to you with my address please hold on to it - I will get back to you eventually. Any bookrings that I'm on please skip me. If you are on any of my bookrings that haven't been sent out yet - I do have hopes to send them eventually, but I have no idea when.

I have I think 2 bookring books in my possession right now - don't worry - they aren't stalled... just delayed. I will send them on as soon as I can afford it!

I've added the link to my profile on facebook! Feel free to friend me there, but please make sure to add a message that you are a bookcrosser so I know where you are coming from!

Welcome to my bookshelf! I have a lot of books on here, but most have actually been released. From now on though, most of my books will be either released as bookrays or sent for a little holiday as bookrings after I've read them. I've listed all my tbr's that I'll be turning into rings on this page, so some of the rings won't actually be sent out for a little while!

Unless marked otherwise, my bookrings/rays are open at all times so let me know if you want to join any of them! The bookspirals are open for you to join the whole series or whichever book/s in the series you need! I will be staggering the spirals by sending one book per month with the exception of the Enid Blytons where I'll be sending 2 a month as they are a lot quicker read!

I'm also running a Bookcrossing Weight Loss Challenge. Message me if you are interested in joining.

BOOKRINGS/RAYS ON OFFER - (17 Feb 08) - It may be taking a bit longer than expected, but all of these bookrings are still open and will be sent out!
