About my libraryI'll read anything that sounds interesting and have a habit (some might say problem) of acquiring books faster than I can possibly read them. I look forward to finishing up some of the books I've already started and finally getting my hands on books that have been sitting unread on my shelves for far too long thanks to the 2014 Challenge, the 75 Challenge, and, most importantly, the ROOTs Challenge.

OOh, if you really are willing, I'd love the Mark Billingham and the Invention of Wings by Kidd. If you sent them to my parents place (that is, NOT Germany), I could read them on the beach this summer. But not if anyone else wants them or you don't want to go to the trouble.
Happy Thingaversary, Laura! Sending hugs
