I'm thrilled when someone can enjoy our duplicate books, so I typically try to send out them the day after I receive the request, Monday through Friday. I will send you a note if a delay is needed. In these tougher times, however, I do send my books in the most inexpensive way - typically first class mail will be cheaper for 1 book while media mail for multiple books. Feel free to mooch multiple books. I may ship internationally as long as the cost to mail it is no more than the cost of the book (thank goodness for the international flat rate envelopes and boxes). Since joining about a year ago, I've sent to 32 US states, 1 military base in Germany and to Australia, Canada, Lithuania, the Philippines, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
We are huge science fiction, media, and comic fans, so sometimes we have found ourselves with duplicate books. I also enjoy mysteries and suspense novels, especially by Barbara Michaels and Elizabeth Peters. Since joining sites like Paperback Swap and Book Mooch, we have been able to fill in many gaps. Lately, I have gone back to reading vampire and romance novels - I'll mooch these type of books, pass them on to friends to read and then post them when I get them back.
There are 2 spoiled dogs in this household as well. However, they are usually kept out of the library ever since one had a taste for paper. All of us are non-smokers.
