So, I've got three swap under my belt now and am thinking about organizing one of my own.

I have to admit that one of my guilty pleasures is chick lit books. Any others like me out there? The clothes, the shoes, the drinks, the journals, the getting ones groove back with or without the perfect guy?

What do you want to swap exactly?  The books?  A particular book or author?  Things that "feel" like chick-lit (like martini motifs, high fashion and desperation for male attention Smiley )?  I like the general idea, but I need more specifics.

I'm thinking a combination of both. Bookcovers, bookmarks, journals etc. with a chick lit motif and/or those things that seem to be part of the chick lit lifestye: copious amounts of chocolate, excessive spending, inappropriate men, what have you.

More of a "what bits of chick lit speak to you (even if it's just a tiny, tiny part)."

I agree with Selise, this swap sounds great, but I don't know if I'd know what to craft for it...but chick lit rules!

-Random Fact-
Oddly enough, "chick lit" started out as a genre describing femenist literature -- poetry, essays, etc. What we think of now as "chick lit" is really quite the opposite to what it started out as.
