Sounds great, but I can't join you  Undecided  Just too much to do for my study.

It is an amazing idea though! I can read in English, love books and buying English books isn't a big problem, not even her in the Netherlands! Maybe if you are doing another round it will be a better moment in my study.

So sorry! But I wish you a lot of fun! You really do have the best ideas!  Cheesy

This sounds like such an awesome swap!!!  Though I am a pretty slow reader.  I would have to push myself to finish the book and then craft something afterward.  I will have to ponder this.

Jillybeans, the crafted item doesn't have to relate to the book you buy for your partner; it could be anything book-related--like a totebag made of fabric with books on it, or a reading journal, or a mug rug that says "Read!" or anything like that.  So you could slowly read the book while working on your crafted item.

 Hahaha! I like that they craft can be random book related too, for us s-l-o-w readers. Cool idea. I will have to check out the list!

Wendiek, I'm sorry you won't have time for this, but I do understand.  Hopefully next time!

So far I have gone through each list about three times but I only have seven books on my list. I have read a lot of them, and also have a lot purchased already on my bookshelf but are unread. I'll just keep going through the lists until I can weed three more out. Smiley I also have seen books that I have thought "Oooh I hope my partner has that one on their list...or that one...or that one.." Grin

Actually I found quite a few I would like to read. But cash flow will prevent me from joining. Hoping for a round 2.
