It's a Blogger Book Swap!

ATTN All Geeks, Nerds, Bookworms, and All Around Awesome People:

I am co-hosting a Blogger Book Swap!  
*Happy Dance* 

What is a book swap, you may ask?

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, (and I super duper hope you do) you will be paired randomly with another book loving blogger.  Jessica from Sweet Green Tangerine 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. Anyway, shipping shouldn't cost more than {five} dollars & if the book is the only thing you are shipping, don't forget to use Media Mail postage.

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!
 
Please check them out & say HI!
