Anyone interested in doing an ongoing book swap?  I saw one that was done last summer & it sounds like a great idea.  Unfortunately, I'm not very organized or I would start it myself.Undecided  So maybe one of you more responsible craftsters would be willing to organize this?  *crossing fingers* Here's the link for the other one (though it doesn't necessarily have to be the same): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93116.0

I would be interested in doing this as I've got tons of books, both novels and the crafting variety looking for new homes.
Definately would like to NOT try my hand at organizing it though... Undecided

It sounds like fun to me!
But I've never done an ongoing swap before, so I don't think I'd be too good at organizing it.

Sounds fun to me, too!
I have several back issues of knitting mags that I could offer....

Hopefully we'll get a little more interest, and maybe someone who is less slacker-ish than the rest of us to organize! Grin

I'd be interested in participating.  I've never been an organizer tho and I don't think now would be the time to start :-p

I'm thinking we should move this thread to the New Swap Ideas board?
Hopefully more participants will check it out there.....
(but I have no idea how to move a thread!  Maybe have to PM a mod to do it?)

Good idea, kayrun.  Also, I found a website called www.paperbackswap.c om  where you can sign up (for free) and trade books with people,  you just post books you have to offer & then you can find books you want from others.  Pretty much the same idea as this swap, but not as cool since there's no craft to go along with the book.

Yes,
I've done a lot of swapping on paperback swap - -
it's a great idea, but I do love my Craftster swaps more  Smiley
Hopefully we can find an organizer to take this on in Aug. sometime?
