For all of you book lovers out there this swap is for you!

I recently visited the used bookstore in my town and forgot how much fun it is to search through shelves of random books looking for those literary treasures that others parted ways with.

This swap entails you to send 1 used (soft-cover) book to 1 partner. Preferably purchased used. This should cost you no more than $3-$5 max (before postage).

You do not need to have read the book before, but purchase something YOU would like to read. This is completely sender's choice. Books must have both covers and all pages in readable condition. Books may be a little banged up - could be a sign the book was well worth the read. You are more than welcome to read it before you send it if you have time!

This swap is open to Newbies! (Sometimes it's hard to join a #3 swap while still new). However, you MUST have at least 5 mailed swaps and they must be rated. No unexplained 1's or 3's in the last 6 months. Everyone else (5+ ratings) must have ratings no lower than 4.9 - I still reserve the right to ban anyone else I feel might be a flaker. This is my first time hosting a #3 swap, so I will be EXTRA careful about those joining the swap. I certainly don't want anyone flaked on, and I want to be the best host possible! :) I'm hoping to do this one again if there is enough interest, so if you choose to sit this one out, but are still interested in a future one, please let me know!

Because this swap has a long signup time, feel free to get your books now! (It'll give you some time to read them too if you choose.) Also, try to keep in mind your partner's likes and dislikes. You don't have to follow it, but if someone has asked for no religious books, please don't send them one.

I am very interested in this swap and would like it offered again. This time frame, however, is not a good one for me. Looking forward to another.

Thanks everyone for listing your interests - however please remember that this IS sender's choice. They are welcome to keep your interests in mind when selecting a book, and I've encouraged them to do so, but as long as a book has been received then a 5 would be an appropriate rating.

I am so excited about this swap! I spend more time then I would like to admit in my local used book store. I would love to receive ANY type of book but especially enjoy those within the social sciences field, and I really appreciate those that are a little banged up with notes in them. :-)
