If you are looking to have me ship outside of the US, I will have to thoughtfully consider the costs and outside North America I can only consider multiple mooches which fill a flat rate envelope. Due the the increased postage costs for International shipping I can only angel books for those with whom I have a previous agreement.

My home is non-smoking, but there are cats living there too. My books are generally in good, readable condition, I try to make notes if not. Please let me know if you have any specific requirements for condition or concerns with allergies. I have allergies myself, to mold and smoke, so if I ask you for a book, please do not send anything with a detectable mold or smoke odor. Some of my books ship from a second location which had a smoker in the house, these books will state in the condition notes that the books may have been exposed to a smoking environment. Most likely they were not exposed, but I don't want to take the chance.

All books are packaged with interior protection from moisture and I recycle mailers whenever possible. The cat hair can be considered an added bonus.

I have a fresh supply of Bookmooch bookmarks, please let me know if you do not want me to include some of these with your book when you mooch from me. If you want a small supply of bookmarks for your own use, please tell me how many and I will be happy to send them to you.

Due to my current work situation I can only get to the Post Office once per week. I will try to mail requests the week received, but at worst every two weeks.

Please note: I am participating in the Inactive Members project which is attempting to re-engage members who have not been active on BM for some time by mooching books from their accounts. I might appear to have a higher than average cancellation rate because many of these mooch attempts are met with no response. This is one way I try to give back to help the Bookmooch community.
