Calling all book lovers!  Susanab and I want to have a swap involving real books--no e-readers allowed!

For the questionnaire, we will each choose at least 10 books that we would like to read from one of these lists:

Modern Library 100 Best Novels (there are actually 2 lists there with 100 books each, but many of the same books are on both lists)

Gilmore Girls Book List (this is a list of books that were mentioned in the TV series "Gilmore Girls".  It has nothing to do with the show, though, so if you are like me and have never seen the show, it doesn't matter!  It includes a broader range of books than the first list.)

 We will choose ONE of the books that our partner wants to read, and purchase the book (can be new, or used in good condition).  If you haven't read it before, go ahead and read it before you send it if you want to!  Then craft two things:
--a bookmark
--a medium-ish item based on the book, or books/reading in general

So you will be sending your partner one book, one crafted bookmark, and one medium-size crafted item.  And since you will be receiving a book in return, you could actually read two new books by participating in this swap.  I know there are a lot of novels on those lists that I would like to read, but if there is a book you've been longing for that's not on the list, just mention it in the thread and I will make a list of "craftster picks" that can be chosen from too.

We would like to open sign ups this Friday, with partners given a week later, and four weeks of crafting/reading time...that puts send-outs right around Feb. 19th.  If you think we need more than 4 weeks, just mention it below.

Are you interested?
