I love reading and swapping books:

I read in English and in Russian.

My other hobbies are Postcrossing, writing letters, cross-stitching and gardening.

My favourite way of Bookcrossing is through or by giving away books to friends. If you see a book that is "available" on my shelf, do not hesitate to ask me for it. I will be happy to give it away/ swap it.

Things I would love to get in a surprise bookish parcel:
- cozy handmade things ( ornaments, bookmarks, earrings, socks ( size 38/ 5.5), etc)
- DMC threads for cross stitching
- beautiful stationery
- coloring pens
- Earl Grey tea
- BC stickers and stationery
- Ex Libris stickers or stamps
- dark chocolate
- anything with lavender
- your local food specialty
- soy, rapeseed, or beeswax candles ( scented, or unscented)
- anything from Muji, Neal's Yard, or Lush stores ( especially Muji black and blue gel pen refills)
- anything British-themed ( I used to live in London!)
- Victoria magazine from the US ( new or second hand)
- as well as books from my wishlist, of course!

My fav fandoms are: BBC Sherlock, The Witcher books and series, GoT, JK Rowling's magical world ( I'm a Slytherin), Poldark, Outlander

I am a vegan, so please don't send me anything that contains animal ingredients ( dairy, eggs, leather, gelatine, etc), with the exception of beeswax candles, otherwise I'll pass it on to my carni husband ;)
