Status message:
Although my status is set to ASK, I'm nearly always able to send books abroad, although I do have to limit the number of international mooches I commit to each month, due to rising postal costs. I always send international mooches by surface mail, so please be aware that it could take a while for the book to reach you.

My closest post office is about a 40 minute walk away, and since I don't have a car and need to take my 8 month old son everywhere I go, I can only make it there every week or so. Please be patient!

I'm a Christian wife, SAHM, writer, editor and book reviewer. I recently graduated from the University of St Andrews with a degree in English and Modern History. I currently live with my husband and son in Edinburgh.

I collect L. M. Montgomery novels, so please let me know if you have any as I still have quite a few on my wishlist! I also collect Babysitters Club books and am always on the lookout for them, especially the UK editions that I grew up with.

All of my books have detailed condition notes, but if you have any questions please ask me. I do not have pets or smoke.

I use bubble-padded jiffy bags for sending books in, generally second hand ones. Please reuse or recycle them! If you're sending books abroad, please don't just mail them in a paper envelope--at least wrap them in cling-film or a freezer bag to prevent them getting wet! It rains a lot in the UK, and I've received a lot of torn or tattered envelopes in the mail.
