Book Exchange???

...last spring, Chelsea over at Roots and Wings did a book exchange. It was fabulous! Basically, everyone mailed her a book with a note inside and a couple dollars to mail a book back to you. Once she got them all, she mailed the books out to everyone and when you finished the book, you put a post on your blog about it.

I have a stack of probably 8 books sitting by my bed and no desire whatsoever to read any of them. I thought I'd try the book exchange so I could get a good new book to read. You, my fellow bloggers, always pick the best books!

The book I'm going to throw in the exchange is "Love is. A Four-Legged Word." I did a book review here about it and the author found the review and left me a comment!

So here's the deal if you want to participate. Pick your favorite book off your shelf, leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an address where to send it. Be sure to write a note in the book including your name and blog and send a couple bucks so I can mail you a book back. Also, let me know the name of the book if you have an idea so we don't get all the same books.

I know with the holidays being all crazy, it'll be tough to do, so we'll make the deadline January 5 to have your book to me. When you're finished, type up a book review with a link to the person who sent you the book and let me know. I'll figure out a McLinky or something so everyone can read all the book reviews.

I should be a good time and give us all lots of book reviews to choose from. I hope you all participate!!!

Whoa. I was thinking about this last night and about maybe doing my own book swap. Looks like you beat me to the punch! ;)

Another option to save on money is to maybe have a list of people who want to participate and set people up and send them an email who to send the book to. It would save a lot of money/time on your part! Just a thought!

My email address:

If it's not too late, I'd love to participate! I just keep forgetting to look at my books!
