If you are like me and you LOVE to read, you also love to hear about what others are reading and get recommendations for books. GoodReads is a good way to do that, if you aren't on there and love to read, it's the place to be! :)

For this swap ~

  • Everyone will leave their GoodReads profile page in the comments below. To make a link use this markdown syntax [ user name ] ( url link ) . You will put your username for the link, in between the brackets. Then take the link from your GoodReads profile and put it in the parentheses and remove ALL spaces. Example ~ [ Imzadi ] ( http://www.goodreads.com/Imzadi ) with ALL spaces removed is ~ Imzadi

  • Once partners are assigned, come here and find your partners link. Go to their profile and click "add as a friend". You may have to go back if it takes your partner time to accept your request.

  • After your request has been accepted, click "compare books" to see a comparison of your books with theirs. (You can do this prior to being "friends" but can not recommend until you are friends)

  • After you see the comparisons, click "recommend a book" on the comparison page, or homepage. Recommend 5 books to your partner. You have checked their books, so don't recommend something they have marked as read, and you can see what genres they like to recommend something in that genre they might like, or something completely different.

  • Don't just recommend an author and title of a book, explain why you have recommended that book. Take the time to check your partners SB book preferences. If they say they don't like fantasy, please don't recommend a fantasy.

  • Come back, mark as completed after you have been accepted as a friend and sent 5 book recommendations to your partner.

Recap ~ friend your partners, compare their books to yours, recommend 5 books to them that they haven't marked as read.

Hopefully with this, you can find some good new books. Please join only if you have a Good Reads account and you don't mind being friends on GoodReads with at least 5 of your fellow Swap-Botters.

Rating requirements 4.8. No 1s or unexplained 3s in the last 6 months. I will angel if necessary, but this is an easy swap, so no flaking!! Newbies are welcome with very well filled out profile, especially a book section.

Beyond your partners, feel free to friend everyone, if you would like, and make recommendations for them all. Even more friends and book recommendations!

Still looking at some ladies needing to send their recommendations. I'm going to send out reminders tomorrow. Sat is the last day to send. Please no one flake!!

I'm waiting to send @BobbiG her recommendations, she hasn't approved my friend request yet.

Same here. @BobbiG is the last one I have to complete, and she hasn't accepted my request yet.

Nothing like a "last minute Annie." That's ME today. Fifteen minutes before midnight (EST) and I've given my recommendations to the people that have become FRIENDS and am still awaiting acceptance as a friend to others. I will send my recommendations as soon as they reply to my friend request. (I need a new favorite book - keep those suggestions coming!) Thanks, this is fun!
