Details of swap:

Who loves a good book? And who doesn't love sharing their favorite ones? In this swap, we will be swapping one of your favorite books that you think your partner will like based on the questionnaire. We'll also be swapping some crafty goodies, and at least ONE item must reflect the book or genre of the book you are sending.

Your book can be thrifted or used, just make sure its in decent condition. Dont send a book that is in such a bad condition you wouldnt buy it yourself. One book is the minimum, but feel free to talk with your partner about sending more. (I will also try to match people up based on if they want to send more than one book or not.)

As for the crafty portion, this is a 4 point swap. Points you say? As follows:

Large item: 3 points (A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse; 3 or more hours of crafting time; $30 or more)
Medium item: 2 points (one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf; about 2 hours crafting time; between $10 - 30)
Small item: 1 point (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks; less than 2 hours crafting time; less than $10)

One item MUST reflect either the book itself or something of the genre of the book. You can talk with your partner about sending more than four points, but four is the minimum. Check out the Book Lovers Swap Gallery HERE for more ideas. The other item(s) can reflect your partners tastes and likes OR stick with the whole book theme.

Please take pictures of your crafted items to post in the gallery. If not, please make arrangements with your partner.

I will try my best to match up people based on their likes and if they want to send more than one book. Please remember, though, that this is to try new books and there are other things to consider when pairing people up.

Make sure to send me the DC# and PM me (with Favorite Book Swap in the subject line) when you send and receive. If youre not in the USA, please get your countrys equivalent. Also, there is a media rate for sending books/movies/etc, but the post office might not accept this if there is something other than media in your package. Check with your post office though; they might let it pass.

So once again, the minimums: ONE book and FOUR points. Have fun!  Cheesy

So I'm so not the oranizer, but if your partner receives by the 31st when the signups for this swap closes, there is no reason why you can't join!

I think I'm going to have to choose between this swap and the I have a Disease swap. Decisions, decisions.  Of course, if I get the 2 packages I'm working on now done, I could join both! I'm going to wait awhile before I decide.

I was thinking about that, too. That swap probably has the best name ever.  Tongue

*sends vibes for you to come to this swap OooOoo* (Ha, forgive me, it's late.)
