Blogger Book Swap!

I'm so excited to announce that I am hosting a Blogger Book Swap!  

Yay!!

What is a book swap?
Well, it's simply a chance for bloggers to meet other bloggers and share their love for books.  We will not only make new friends, but also receive a new book!

What do I have to do?
If you choose to join, you will be paired randomly with another book loving blogger.  I will email you with your partners information, then you can follow each others' blogs and Goodreads profiles. (Don't have one?)  Once you get to know each other, you choose a book & send it to them.  I think it's best to keep the book a secret, and if possible, send them one you have read and loved.  Try not to send them one they've already read if you can avoid it.

How much will I have to spend?
You don't have to spend a lot!  Christmas is coming up and new books can be pricey.  In case you haven't noticed, a used book is still as functional as a brand new one (in most cases).  There's no shame in shopping at a thrift store or from your own shelves.  I, myself, love the feel of a pre-loved book.  Wait, that didn't sound right.
Anyway, shipping shouldn't cost more than {five} dollars.

Then what?
When you do receive your book in the mail, do a little blog about it.  Then, head back over here on November 8th to link it up so we can all share the book swap fun!

I have enlisted the help of some of my favorite bookish blog friends to help me host.  Please check them out & say HI!

Also, please spread the word about the book swap so we can recruit even more bloggers to participate!  If you post about it on twitter, use the hashtag #bloggerbookswap.

Also, please place this button on your sidebar so your readers can share in the fun too!

Is it too late for this? http://sharylovesyou.blogspot.com I like young adult books, but I enjoy fantasy books even better. I'd love to join if you're still taking submissions!

Sweet Green Tangerine said...

Hey! I was waiting a few days to see if we had anyone else join, but I'm afraid we don't have anyone else for you two swap with. The deadline to ship was today, but I promise we will hold a book swap again, perhaps in the Spring!
I'm so sorry!
