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/
Ideas for other book-related items you could make:
*Wallet (for your library card to have a home of course
*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
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
