Gosh, I didn't think it would be that hard to decide on a book to send but my partner just picked such interesting ones that I just don't know where to start...

I had a similar problem.  Smiley   I finally decided on one and ordered it... and then I ordered a 2nd book for myself of one of her favorite books because it sounded so interesting.   Cheesy

I've got good ideas for what I want to make.   I'm hoping they turn out as well as I envision.   Cheesy

I've bought the book, started the bookmark, and know what I want to do for my medium! Hopefully this weekend I will be able to get the supplies I need and get started on it.

Oh--I had to add this--I'm excited to get a bookmark in this swap, because right now I'm using a crumpled one-dollar bill!

Smiley I have used many a train ticket in my time - I always have my book mark when I get on the train, then I read during the journey and... where on earth did it go?? Train ticket acts as emergency stopgap until I have time to empty my bag and find the real one..

I'm hitting a few little stores tomorrow & wednesday to see if I can find a book there, I thought it would be cool to send a book brought on Charing Cross Road (any other helen haniff fans here?)

I am so happy that my partner loves Harry Potter as much as I do!  I am pretty sure I know exactly what I am going to make for my medium.

Yay! I'm excited! I am going book shopping tomorrow and I am already sketching out ideas for the medium.

The Book Thief is a good book. My son had to read it in high school, so I read it too. I enjoyed it. One of the better ones that I read with him. I do have it on my Nook and it is lendable if anyone is interested in borrowing it. You can loan it out once for a two week period.


I started work on may medium project.  I'm not real sure how it is going to end up. I didn't take some things into account when I thoughtit was a great idea. Huh  I'm still unsure on what kind of book mark to make yet. I have a couple ideas to contemplate.
