I've been a member of a few book clubs in the past, but they've all either fizzeled out, or met at times that didn't work with my schedule. I love the idea of making a craft based on a book. Would be really great if it could be an ongoing thing... 6-12 books per year?
I'd also be happy with the other options - count me in!

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I love this idea. Though I think as far as a "book club" type environment, a craft-along/read-along might work out better. You could do a companion swap to it though, where actual items are crafted and swapped. But the discussion of the book would mostly take place in the read-along thread. In this scenario though, it would most likely have to be one book agreed upon, and read by the group, though it could be a new book every month or two.

I'm intrigued!

 Huge reader, I'm completely obsessed with my Kindle. I can read and hold my cat at the same time (it's a miracle I am married). I would LOVE to do this swap! Mid-August is perfect for me because I am wanting to take a short break from swapping to get a couple other projects finished up.
 Is anyone organizing or are you looking for one? Just curious. Not sure if I would want to match people up for this sort of swap. But I love the idea of crafts based on books.

I love the idea of a read-along craft-along, where we all read the same book for a month (or whatever)  and craft something inspired by it!  Smiley

I would love someone to craft for me with my favorite book. I don't want to send it. It is the only book I brought back from MT. Now I love the Hunger Games. If a partner has read the same book it would be great. If not, they can check it out from a library. My favorite book ever is the Stand and it is one heavy tome.
