Would anybody be interested in a guide to life swap, basically everyone would buy (or make) a book and then fill it with advice for life, tips and tricks, inspiring quotes and anything else they think is interesting.

Think it could be quite fun. Anyone else with me?

I think it sounds like a great idea! Even though I'm only 19, I still have had life experiences that no one else has. The same goes with other people! I'd be up for it.

You know in Elizabethtown, when she makes him the map, complete with pockets of CDs for a music soundtrack?  That might make an awesome guide to life.  You could include quotes, places, to visit, maps, stories, poems, pressed flowers, trinkets (i.e., a pretty bracelet to wear when you feel like you're all alone), pockets and flaps, pop-ups, photographs, etc.  It would be awesome!

The more I think about this swap, the more I like it.  People could specify a theme they want.  I.e.

- a roadtrip across country (maps, music, places of interest, quotes, pictures, an air freshener for about halfway there as a pick-up, bumper sticker games, etc.

- around the world (places around the world, people, lessons, etc.)

- break-up book (how to get over a breakup (recipes, movie, music, project ideas, etc.)

- generic guide to life (pressed flowers, pictures, quotes, jokes, music, etc.; each page themed after a concept (compassion, laughter, faith, perseverance, etc.)
