Please read everything before joining.

Details of swap:

You must be pre-approved for this swap! Do not post your list until I say you are approved! Thanks.

Person A puts a list together of all the books that they would like to recieve, there must be atleast 5 books (with a picture link or a link to a website that has the book if possible). You can wish for as many books as you want, as long as there is five.

Then Person B will read your list, if they have a book/magazine they can send you, they will reply to the thread and say "I claim Person A for The Best Book in the World" or something off of their wishlist. When they reply, they will also include their swap status (0 claimed, 0 sent, 0 recieved).  IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS (your number of claims) WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!

Then, Person B will post their wish list, and the chain continues.

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last list should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides they have something they can send you.

You have two weeks to get your claim sent. Since we don't have to craft anything, this is plenty of time to send it out. Bookmarks are not required, but are encouraged! 

You can participate as many times as you want but no person can "owe" more than 3 things at a time.

PLEASE LIST YOUR COUNTRY at the beginning of your list!



Other Swap Conditions:

You MUST get Delivery Confirmation (DC#) on all of your packages (If you are outside of the US, DCs are not required, but keep your receipt)!! This is a requirement for this swap. If you can not or are not willing to get DCs, DO NOT SIGN UP! If you don't get them, I will give you positive feedback with a comment like "Not willing to get DCs" which could hurt your ability to sign up for other swaps. I know this all seems a bit harsh but getting Delivery Confirmation really makes the swapping experience a happier one for everybody!

Additional Rules (borrowed from various organizers):
1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
2. Please bookmark this thread or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.
3. I will give detailed feedback (other than positive/negative) if any of the following apply:
-  Great Swapper: For those who follow all the rules.
-  Good/poor communication:  Went above or below the call of duty to keep the organizer informed.
-  Sent late/early: Three or more days late or early.
-  No dc number: Failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country.
4. PM me and your partner with your DC number when you send. PM me and your partner when you receive, and please thank your partner.

Things happen: if for any reason you need an extension, please let me and your partner know via PM. That way I will know that you are not flaking and you will not receive negative feedback.

When you send, you must:
1. PM princesskaos15, the organizer
2. PM your partner
3. Include the DC#, if you are inside the US.

When you receive, you must:
1. PM princesskaos15, the organizer
2. PM your partner
3. Post in the gallery. Even if you don't have pictures, please post a thank you in the gallery! If you can, include a brief summary or a link to the book, so that we can learn a little about it. You never know, we may be interested and not know it!

My name is Jillie and I've been pre-approved by the organizer for this swap.  I live in the USA.

Books I Would Like:

1. Tao Te Ching ( http://www.amazon.com/Tao-Ching-25th-Anniversary-Lao-Tsu/dp/0679776192/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-3711123-7361528?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1186409927&sr=8-1 )
It doesn't have to be this edition/translation, I'll take any one you have  (as long as it's in English  Wink)

2.  Any knitting books/magazines! 
Especially one that explains about making and modifying patterns, since that's what I'm currently learning.  I already have the Stitch n Bitch books and this one ( http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Knitting-Patterns-Gisela-Klopper/dp/1402722265/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-3711123-7361528?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1186410225&sr=8-1 ) but I would like anything else!
3. House of Leaves http://www.amazon.com/House-Leaves-Mark-Z-Danielewski/dp/0375703764/ref=pd_bbs_2/104-3711123-7361528?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1186410273&sr=1-2

4. Fight Club

The novel not the movie http://www.amazon.com/Fight-Club-Novel-Chuck-Palahniuk/dp/0393327345/ref=pd_sim_b_4/104-3711123-7361528?ie=UTF8&qid=1186410273&sr=1-2 

5.  Frank Miller comic books

6.  Any book about spinning with a drop spindle
I'm trying to learn and my craft store doesn't have any instructional books!

7.  Anatomy textbooks
Any with lots of pictures!  I use them for references when drawing.

8.  Books by Jules Verne
I have 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and A Journey to the Center of the Earth.  I'd especially like to have From the Earth to the Moon or The Mysterious Island, but really anything else by him is wonderful too!

9. The 1001 Nights (also known as Arabian Nights, or A Thousand Nights and a Night)
Any edition/translation--I'm totally not picky.  I just want the stories.

Tetris, pretty colors, and (of course) lots of knitting!

There are only 4 of us listed in the first post, so we have to drum up some business, I guess  Smiley
Maybe we should post in some of the reconstructed book threads or other boards?
Anyone have any ideas?

P.S. Jenna Rose, do you have any more magazines to offer up?  I think I have that issue of Real Simple

Ok.  This one doesn't look like it's going to go anywhere and I have two other swaps that are about done and would like to participate in others. Is there any way to take this swap off my swap list thing in my profile?  Or how does that work?

It looks like this swap has stalled, and as ongoing swaps are only allowed to remain open for a month and the organizer hasn't been online for a while, I'm going to go ahead and close this out. I'll be checking to see who did not actually participate (ie, you signed up but were not chosen/did not pick someone to send to), and I will remove this swap from your feedback.

kayrun and jillie, please pm me with your status.

Thanks everyone.  Smiley
