Hi - thanks for the enthusiastic response! Right, I've never done anything like this before so rules are going to be made up as we go along - please feel free to offer suggestions, criticism, ideas that you think will make this a more efficient and enjoyable community.

Here goes...
I enjoy literary fiction, biography, graphic novels and poetry. I'm also interested in books on the history of publishing, printing and typography. Favorite authors: Italo Calvino, Vikram Seth, Neil Gaiman, A.S. Byatt, Virginia Woolf. (to name a few)

Begs for:
1. John Crowley's The Evening Land, to borrow (although if someone's up for letting me steal it that would be fine and dandy as well ;))

Great idea! I do the odd bit of bookcrossing but I like the idea of being able to lend books rather than just give them away for ever.

I mostly read literary fiction and graphic novels, and borrowing the latter would be spot on, as they don't take long to read but they do cost a mint. Favourite authors include: Marjane Satrapi, Kate Atkinson, Charles Ware, Joe Sacco, Daniel Clowes, Evelyn Waugh, Gunter Grass, A S Byatt, Margaret Atwood, blah blah blah all I can think of for now.

Begs for:
1. Spiegelman's In the Shadow of No Towers to borrow.

2. Craig Thompson's Blankets to borrow.

Er...sorry, that was me! Would you mind putting up a post saying exactly the same thing? Set the trend and all that :). Thanks very much.

This sounds fun! Though I have too many books/DVDs borrowed at the moment to feel responsible for any more. :)
