Fall into a good book!

If you were in the last round of swaps, cool–send along the book you received. If you’re joining for the first time, pick out a book you liked, hard cover or paperback, but intact (both covers and all pages complete!) and send it to your partner.

IMPORTANT! Please paste a card or paper on the front inside cover so each reader can add her name. Some swappers have been putting address labels in so we can see where they’re from too. If you don’t want to do that, please just put your name and location.

It’d be fun to register these books at Bookcrossing, a website for exchanging and passing along books. You can add a review there and keep track of where your book travels. Check it out at www.bookcrossing.com It’s free and kind of fun! If you receive a bookcrossing book, please do register it. You don't need to join to do that.

It is okay if it's not be the kind of book you (or your partner) would normally read, The idea is to try reading something different. Who knows, you might find a new favorite genre or author! If your your new partner has already read your current book (check the list in the front!), please just send a different one from your collection and keep the other book for the next month and a different partner.

For hearts you might add extras like popcorn or book marks, that kind of stuff. Look at your partner’s profile to see what they may like. But be aware that you cannot send media rate if you put in extra stuff!

USA only to keep expenses lower. Feel free to start an international one if you like!

Please pm before you rate someone down if you haven't received your book.

I hate to have to add this, but we've had some flakers, so no Newbies, and you must have at least a 4.5 with NO no sends in the past year. If you're a newbie or someone trying to claw their way back from a bad spell, please pm me and I'll set up a private swap for us.

Have fun. Happy book swapping and reading!

I love to have lots of childrens' books on hand..Can a child's book be sent instead of one for the adult....I see that most people have children..If not, that is OK, too...

I am addicted to craft books.... and collect cookbooks as well. self help is always good!! I love Debbie Macomber, and have a few of her books. also am working on my Nicholas Sparks collection too.

I'm so glad I found this swap... and excited to get my partner's info!!

What a great swap! I thought I would just add there is also bookmooch... Where you can add the books you are done with and then list books you are interested in. (www.bookmooch.com) its a free service because the sender of the books pays for shipping. check it out.

i'm open to almost anything---not true crime, nothing too graphic, no sci-fi please. I read mostly fiction.

I love craft books... cook books (with interesting "different" recipes) self help... etc. I've got a list of books I'm working my way through that you have to read cover to cover, and it'll take me a while.. so something along the lines of a craft book/self help book where I can read in between my story books.. and can flip open a page and find something interesting for that day, would be IDEAL... but, I look forward to whatever my mail-lady brings me. :o)
