Round One of this swap went so well, and everyone had such a good time picking out books and receiving a big box in return.....so here's round 2!
For this swap, you will get a rather largish box (with room for at least 15 or so used paperback books), and you will make a trip to whatever venue you prefer for used books (or your own "already read'' bookshelf)......look for books you think your partner would enjoy (please pick books that aren't damaged....water damage, mold, ripped/missing/loose pages, spine damage,etc. Used condition is expected, but let's not send out obviously damaged sub-par books), and then pack up the box and ship to your swap pal by Media Mail. (Swap restricted to US only due to Media Mail availability and postage expense).
Please use Delivery Confirmation on your package. DC provides proof of mailing (date and time) AND the tracking number makes it easier for the postal system to trace and find stray packages. Media Mail does take just a bit longer because MM is only loaded on trucks when there is extra room.....so a DC# will also let your partner know when the box is coming so he/she knows when to start stalking their mail man. :) I have received some MM packages extremely quickly so delivery time can be varied. A DC# is a way to ensure that your partner knows his/her package is on its way, even if the post office takes extra time to actually deliver it.
Have fun picking out some really cool books for your swap pal.....don't just grab a handful of old harlequins out of a 10 cent bin and call it done. Make it fun for yourself.....and your partner! Be discriminating!
PLEASE don't sign up for this swap if you are not absolutely sure you can send out a package on time. PLEASE don't flake out on your partner. PLEASE by all means join us if you LOVE to read, and LOVE finding great books at bargain prices, and if you LOVE to share books with friends!
Swappers who have received any unexplained 1 ratings for no-sends in the past 6 months will be removed from the swap before partners are assigned. If you have some low ratings but can explain....message me and we can talk about it. Please no newbies.....only swappers with ratings for package swaps (email and postcard swaps don't count).
When you sign up, please post a message to the swap thread giving some preferences as to genre, or other general likes/dislikes. BUT, since specific titles or types of books might not be available, your partner is not required to send you any specific books or types of book.
Any questions?? Message me!
