For my first swap (January Book Swap) I sent a book. It came back to me with a stamp on it saying 'No Such Street'. So far it hasn't been resolved. :( On another swap (Wacky Holidays in November) I sent the package to my partner twice and both times it came back.
Please remember to put a note with the swap name and your swap bot name in any package you send me.I will always send swaps I sign up for and will rate when I receive swaps.I reuse packaging and boxes/bags that I have on hand whenever possible.Please contact me if you haven't received anything. If I haven't received a swap from you I will contact you. I understand things happen. Let's work together to make it right. If you rate me on a swap with a heart then I thank you now. Life gets pretty busy and though I try not to I sometimes may forget.
I'm not much for romance novels.I like mysteries and books where someone had once struggled but in the end triumphed. I like a variety....and have been trying to read even just a few moments each day (reader digest 3 in 1 stories)

I like a variety of music. (Christian,rap, and polka...are among those I don't really listen to.) Old rock and roll bands like Heart, Fleetwood Mac (for example) I listen to a lot.
