Please be aware that it will take time for me to mail books. I'm busy and skint and chronically ill, so be patient. I will definitely send your mooches when I can.

Lydia, 20s, London base, Hungarian feet, Turkish head, Francais stomach. Mixed ability being, not for the faint-hearted.

I lived with a cat for 2 months, and now live with smokers. I like to burn incense now and again. I've not noticed my books being smelly, but just letting you know.

Up for barter for points, I have a pile of DVDs. 1 point = 1 DVD (UK) 2 points = 1 DVD (Europe) 3 points = 1 DVD (rest of world). May be able to do deals for multiples.
List over at Please grab some!

---The condition of my books is not excellent. They've all been read and other than a few almost-new exceptions they range from good to acceptable condition. They are all okay for reading and have either intact or taped binding - but you probably don't want to give them as gifts unless you know the recipients are not fussy! I try to specify it if a book is only in acceptable condition, so if I don't mention it the condition is probably good. I usually sell better books if I can, as I don't have much money.

I send worldwide but outside Europe it's all by surface mail. This can take up to 4 months, I'm afraid. I can't afford to spend any more than I already do on postage. I will refuse mooches of very heavy books outside the UK, but those are usually marked in the condition notes.

All my books are now BookCrossing registered. I do not demand that you go onto and review the books, but I'd love it. I enjoy seeing where my books go.
