Description:

I love passing good books on to other readers, and I'm hoping that there are some other swappers here that feel the same way. I'd love a chance to browse someone else's bookshelf and pick out a great book. For this swap you'll get that chance! Here's how:

  • List 10 books in the comments section for your partner to choose from.
  • Once partners are assigned, PM your choice to the person sending to you.
  • Check your PM's for the book you should mail to your partner.
  • Mail the one book your partner has chosen by the send by date.

If your partner neglects to PM you their choice, you may send any book you have listed. Anyone who has not posted a list of 10 books in the comments section by the signup deadline will be dropped from the swap. Swappers with any unexplained 1 and 3 ratings will be banned. This will be a US only swap to keep shipping down to media mail rates.

Does it have to be 10 books? I'm not sure I have 10 novels to pass along off the top of my head, might have to go digging :) Also - do they have to be novels, or can it be other kinds of books? Either way, I LOVE this idea!!

tigerlilly327 11/ 5/2013 #

@sunshinegirl76 - I think 10 books gives your partner a nice selection to choose from. I'd prefer novels, short story collections, books of poetry.. things that someone will be able to read and enjoy as opposed to simply use for crafting.

I would also like to point out that I would never just give away Jane Eyre because I really and truly love it, but my husband and I each owned a copy (from high school) when we got married. And I just bought a beautiful leatherbound collector's edition of it, so we really don't need 3 copies of the same book. Haha
