Know some books your partner's read? You can try finding books that they might like (based off the one book) here: http://www.librarything.com/

More inspiration:

http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/bookmarks.php/

Ideas for other book-related items you could make:
*Book cozies
*Book ends
*Wallet (for your library card to have a home of course Wink )
*A secret book (aka the inside is hallowed out so you can put stuff in it)
*A mini book on a necklace
*Something (eg. magnets) with quotes/pictures from books
*Anything else your heart desires Wink

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

note: I've noticed that three reading rainbow swaps have been recorded in the feedback list, but I can only find two on craftster. If an organizer from a previous swap filled out the feedback incorrectly, this could very well be the 3rd Reading Rainbow swap, but I'm going to go with what I see and call it the 4th

Guyyyssss.
2 out of 4 forms so far say that they have children, under the section for common allergies. - -;

Am I completely daft or are there *actually* people who are allergic to small children? XD
I think that would be hilarious.

I never got a single form saying this in the last swap I ran! XD

I think I found a problem:

Would you like to receive something instead of a totebag/bookmark?
If you answered no above, please fill out these questions:
What might you be interested in recieving instead?
Anything you don't want?

If you answered yes above please fill out these questions:
How large would you like your totebag to be?
Long or short strap?
Any other specifications? (eg. need it to close at the top)?

I answered no to the "would you like to receive something instead of ..." however, the question it says I am suppose to go to if I answered "no" is the question I would go to if I said yes.

Aw, I wish you'd pointed it out <3
I'm really not perfect XD

I've swtiched the yes to no on all the forms I've recieved so far, and vise versa.

If anyone who answered both questions would actually only have liked to answer one, but got confused about the wording, tell me which to zap Wink

I was feeling lazy and I figured someone else would let ya' know! Wink  And, you can leave my answers as they are...If I get partnered with someone who is set on making me the totebag/bookmark or with someone who wants to make something else, I'll be happy either way!

Thanks for giving us so many options, Astica!
