Status message:
Some of the books in my inventory will contain Bookcrossing stickers and/or the BCID number written on them. Others will be registered but unmarked and unlabeled. Check the condition notes. If you mooch an unlabeled book from me and would like to journal it on Bookcrossing, ask me for a BCID number.

I mail worldwide but will ocasionally limit larger, heavier books to Europe only.

Shipping through economy bookrate mail:
- 3-8 working days to Portugal
- 1-2 weeks within Europe
- Up to 6 weeks for the rest of the world (post office estimate is 20 days)

Books will be mailed within a week or two of the request. If there's a delay beyond two weeks, I will warn you.

Note: Please warn me if you're allergic to animals. Although most of the books I list are back at my mother's place, where no animals reside (hence the 1-2 week delay in mailing since I only go there on weekends), I do currently live in the same apartment as two cats and a dog, though I don't really read near them and they very rarely sneak into my room where the books are.

About Me
My name is Rita, I'm a 30 years old book-o-holic, born and bred in sunny (though occasionally rainy) Portugal. I am always looking for great new books to read. I read a lot in English (almost exclusively in the past years), not only because there aren’t many translations of books I want to read but also because it’s fairly cheaper to buy the original versions. Some of my favourite authors are George R.R. Martin, Patricia McKillip, Guy Gavriel Kay, Marion Zimmer Bradley, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jane Austen, Frank Herbert, Robin Hobb, Anne McCaffrey, among many others.

I live in a non-smoking house and we have no pets aside from a couple of turtles (aptly named Michael-Angelo and Donatello, go figure). Some of my books come from other people (bookcrossing or previously bookmooched) so I can't guarantee where they've been. If you're particularly sensitive or allergic, please refer that when you mooch (or email me first) so I can check the book in question for any strong smells.

All my books are registered at Some will contain labels on the inside of the cover or in the first page, others will only have a BCID number written somewhere at the beginning, and others will have no labels at all (see status). You're under no obligation to journal the books if you mooch them from me, though you're always welcome to do so, even if anonymously.

Check out my Bookshelf. If you're interested in anything on my Available shelf at Bookcrossing that isn't in my inventory, send me and email and I'll list it for you.
