About meI'm a book-geek, mom-of-three, scientist, exercise-nut, who loves to cook and entertain. That about says it all-- what else would I have time for?

About my libraryMaybe 800 books in all: classics, newer stuff that isn't trash, mostly fiction but also bios, philosophy, psychology, history. I have an eclectic mix from many genres and eras, but really just want beautiful writing and to read something that is different and meaningful-- dark, weird, disturbing--all that is good too. I read to learn and experience and am up for a challenge. I love my LT Reading Groups-- though I can't keep up with the serious readers as I can only get through about 30-35 books a year. I'm also trying to put together a good library for my kids in hopes they will appreciate it some day.

am yours Halima.
"Wonderful, Wonderful Times" is reserved for you now, so mooch away (mentioning again here just in case the BM email goes astray).

Hi Debbie
Just an update to say that "Wonderful, Wonderful Times" has now been posted to me. I'll let you know when I have it listed for you.
Best wishes
Hi Debbie
Thanks very much for the angel help with 'Nights at the Circus'.
My BM ID is scarecrow204.

Thanks for mooching City of God for me! My BM id is Mareofthesea.
mooched Snow White Blood REd for quigui
Hi Debbie,
Doesn't sound very likely does it. :(
If it is annoying you and you don't mind another cancel then go ahead and 'vacation' her!!! I will put it back on my wishlist. Thank you for trying so hard for me - I understand as I do the same with mine. I am sorry for the hassle - this book just isn't meant to get mooched by me. I'd buy it but it is not available at TBD!!
Much appreciated,
Thank you! I'll go and claim it now :)
Hi, Debbie. Thanks once more for the Angel! There's no rush in sending the first book. You can wait for the 2nd one and mail them together. If they can fit in a flat rate I think there will be savings in shipping.
Hi! Just to let you know that you angelled the Seventeen magazine for me :)
Debbie - saw your note...such an angel you are!
To that end; you mooched (and asked about condition) Fantastic beasts and where to find them for me (Ithink the request went through) - so you know. :)

I always leave a note in my mooch comments as to who I am mooching the book for (their BM id especially); otherwise I would never remember either! We all appreciate it so much!
I'm sorry Debbie, but I can't find a second mooch at the moment. Feel free to delay sending, I'm sure there will be something eventually that I'll want from the US, but I'm having a hard time finding something right now!

Thanks for your kind offer,
Thanks Debbie - I'll be in touch from BM shortly.

Hi Deb,
Good call on "Devil" - thanks so much for your efforts, anyways - I do appreciate it!

Please don't rush to send the other. How about waiting until I can get you to Angel Mooch another book for me within the next few weeks? Or maybe you'd rather just get it off your plate? Either way is fine with me!!!!!

Thanks again,
Thanks very much for angel mooching 'Alien Taste' by Wen Spencer for me. My BM ID is scarecrow204.
~ Helen
Hi Debbie,
Cancelling anytime is absolutely fine with me. Would you like me to look for a second mooch to replace Devil in the Details? It shouldn't take long for me to find something, and I am not in any rush for the other book.

Thanks for attempting, and I'll hold out hope until Monday:)

Thanks, Debbie. It was very kind of you to get it for me. I've extended the reservation of The Appointment by Herta Muller for you to a month. By that time I think, some Angel will snag it for you.

Hi Debbie

I have John Fowler's Mantissa for you (yay!) and have added it to my inventory on bookmooch and reserved it for you.

No problem I understand.
It should be posted today. :)
I love an easy mooch *fingers crossed*
Debbie: I have gotten a condition note about the Bainbridge book: this is a paperback published by penguin slight yellowing at edges of pages due to age of book but all pages are intact no marks or tears my copy has a different cover
Let me know if you still want it...
Thank you so much - I'm melissasyd on Bookmooch and you've angeled Dwelling Places for me.
...and please hang onto whichever one arrives first, until the other does, in order to send them together.

Thanks again,
That's super Debbie, thank you. I'm sorry that I didn't remember that from before. Thanks for your trouble. I'm happy to wait for awhile yet :)

Hi Debbie,
Thanks very much for Angel Mooching The Fifth Child by Doris Lessing for me. You'd also requested Devil in the Details for me but I think there may have been a glitch with that one? When you have time, could you remind me of whether we cancelled that mooch, or if we are still waiting?
Thanks again,
Thank you so much, I really appreciate all the effort you are putting in on my behalf.

I really appreciate the updates as well.

Best wishes


Huh!I just checked on that mooch a little earlier today (was doing some BM housekeeping) and felt a bit sad as it hadn't been accepted yet...and then I got your note! I must do that more often - lol!

Thanks for the update Debbie, and thanks so very much for getting the book for me..
Thank you for the update Debbie.
Hi there,
A reminder note, just in case you'd like to have one - "Devil in the Details" is for me. Thanks so much for Angel Mooching for me!
Thank you very much for angel-mooching this book for me!
Sorry about the delay getting back to you. I've been trapped at home with a miserable cold and I have no internet there -- I have lots to catch up on :-) Thanks very much for mooching this book for me. I really appreciate it!
No problems Debbie - just wanted to help if I could; or at least help you feel a little less aggrieved. :)
We are in the process of up-dating and overhauling the official 'angel' list - there is even a thread that Michelle started; you can volunteer when it is asked as LT members will be added to it.

I know what you mean - it is very rewarding to get a book to someone who really wants it; especially in another country!
Hi Debbie,
Noticed your post about not being able to mooch books...I can get you one from Australia if you want it as I 'angel' from there. This one:
I know what it is like to have all your 'available' books NOT available!!!
No obligation - just thought I would offer; it may not be high up on the "get it NOW list". LOL!

P.S. If you want to know about angel mooching I have a link to the list on my BM profile page - basically we get you the book; when it arrives post it and reserve it for you and send you the link, you mooch; we post! QED!!! Hopefully it is that simple!
Noticed you liked As I Lay Dying, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:


Just read your review of Paul Auster's NY Trilogy. Thanks for that. I'm also taking it to NYC to read on my first visit there in a few weeks time! Been meaning to read Auster for years. Looking forward to it.
