Do you have a bookcase (or just simply cases) full of books you wouldn't mind passing on? Love Bookmooch, Paperbackswap, or Swaptree, but wouldn't mind another chance to get something new to read? This is your swap.

Fiction, non-fiction, romance, horror, true crime, biography--everything is welcome here! The swap is international, but for the sake of simplicity we will be keeping this to English language, unless otherwise decided between you and your partner. Please comment with the genre you favor,perhaps a link to a book list (like Amazon), or to a note in your profile what you would prefer to recieve.

Books can be new or used (in good condition). It would be nice if you include a little note for your partner, but not strictly necessary. A rating of a 3.5 or higher is required.

I have a list on my profile. I Love mystery, murders, and lately have read several of the cozy mystery stories.

hi. i´m new on this homepage (But not in the swapping world:)) Am i not allowed to join this swap? (I love books, so this is just the right one for me:))

Hi heidiling,

I set the rating to 3.5 or higher, so unrated newbies will find it hard to join. I would suggest glancing through some of the really great email swaps that are available on Swapbot and see which ones you like. If you join two or three and get rated for those before the 4th, you are more than welcome to join. Hope that helps! :)

If this swap goes over well, emma1981, I have every intention of hosting another!

i hope you will host one like this soon again. Still a newbie, but have completed my first type 3. swap, so i hope i will be ready for the next one:)

This sounds great!

My main loves are mysteries (anything from Agatha Christie to Kathy Reichs and back) & fantasy/sci-fi. If anyone has an old Star Wars book hanging around I'll more than welcome it!

Question - I like the idea of this however am slightly concerned. If I don't have a book that my partner has listed, then do I have to buy them one?

jenthewen 10/ 1/2010 #

I like reading self-help /psychology books, and non fiction for example travel, cultures & autobiographies...etc... I'm not too keen on novels (chick lit, mystery, horror or science fiction).

Anneliese25 10/ 1/2010 #

Teemnis--It's less of a specific book and more of a genre. For instance, I like romance and biography, travel, autobiographies, and history. Fiction in general. There is a very good chance that you will have one of the aforementioned genres. :) Part of the fun is that it is going to be a surprise. Don't feel that you have to buy a book--you don't. We're only swapping those we already have.

teemnis 10/ 1/2010 #

Thank you. Count me in. Love all kinds of books! :)

PenguinBurger 10/ 1/2010 #

I would love a book that fits into any genre. I prefer fiction but I also like to read memoirs and autobiographies.

Anneliese25 10/ 2/2010 #

Teemnis--glad you joined! Welcome to everyone who's signed up thus far!

disneyfreaksam 10/ 3/2010 #

I would love any fiction book at all.

AnaGoncalves 10/ 3/2010 #

I love the idea! :) I enjoy Memoirs, Self-help /psychology, Non Fiction for example travel, cultures & autobiographies etc... and Fiction Thriller/Crime Books.

bookwyrmm 10/ 3/2010 #

I love fantasies, mysteries, horror, and YA, but will read almost anything (not into Western or Sci-Fi that much, though). A link to my Goodreads page in on my profile - and anything listed on my Goodreads page as TBR, I own (but it should give you a good idea of what types of things I read).

heidiling 10/ 3/2010 #

I would love a fiction paperback (At the moment i am really into chick-lit especially:)) But a memoir/biography would also be nice.

I´m really exited about this swap, so can´t wait to get started:)

valleychic 10/ 3/2010 #

The only genres I don't read are westerns and sci-fi--as in outer space & aliens--fantasy and horror are fine.

devilyn 10/ 4/2010 #

I have a list on my profile too, the only books i don't like are westerns, sci fi and not too keen on romance

mikkisgrmom 10/ 4/2010 #

I like mostly historical fiction.

PreciousPunk 10/ 4/2010 #

I like everything except Romance and Westerns. Excited to see what I get!
