OK, I'm going to ask what everyone would like to see in the lists??  I know I have a room full of books, but I don't want to list them all because I think it might be silly. 

I guess you could keep the answers simple.  Like:  I love fantasy books, or I only read things that have historical background, or just crafty books.  Maybe if we all had a better idea of what people were on the lookout for than maybe this might run a little faster or get more people interested.  Just a thought Cheesy

Good thought.  Personally, I'm especially interested in crafty books & magazines.  What with this being craftster & all.  Paperback novels seem to rain down on me in greater quantity that I can deal with anyway.  (But you never know if something might catch my eye.)

I'm interested in mostly fashion magazines from out of the US or magazines like Bust and Bitch. Also, anything having to do with being vegetarian or vegan is always wanted Smiley

Yeah--magazines like Bust, cookbooks, other types of how-to, music magazines like No Depression--I'd be interested in these, too.

Cook books would be nice!  i never thought of that.  I say make the list as long as you want, no problem in doing that, I don't thing. 

I had originally specified that each swapper could only choose two books to be sent to them but I'm thinking now that maybe once you have been chosen and sent (twice) go ahead and pick again, it's not like you HAVE to craft anything to go with the book, that's why the send out time is so short.

Please also remember to PM me when you send.

Thanks! Grin

Hello!
Is it okay if I go ahead and claim two? If so, I'd like dabba's Ideals mag (either issue) and Rain's Shameless mag.

Here is my list:
1. The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1884365302/sr=8-1/qid=1143149244/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-9593125-4239232?%5Fencoding=UTF8
(I have an older copy, but you get the idea. This book will make you never want to eat sausage again.)

2. A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CSXSW2/sr=8-3/qid=1143149293/ref=pd_bbs_3/002-9593125-4239232?%5Fencoding=UTF8
(Again, I have an older copy than what amazon offers. I really enjoyed this book.)
From amazon: " Walter M. Miller's acclaimed SF classic A Canticle for Leibowitz opens with the accidental excavation of a holy artifact: a creased, brittle memo scrawled by the hand of the blessed Saint Leibowitz, that reads: "Pound pastrami, can kraut, six bagels--bring home for Emma." To the Brothers of Saint Leibowitz, this sacred shopping list penned by an obscure, 20th-century engineer is a symbol of hope from the distant past, from before the Simplification, the fiery atomic holocaust that plunged the earth into darkness and ignorance. As 1984 cautioned against Stalinism, so 1959's A Canticle for Leibowitz warns of the threat and implications of nuclear annihilation. Following a cloister of monks in their Utah abbey over some six or seven hundred years, the funny but bleak Canticle tackles the sociological and religious implications of the cyclical rise and fall of civilization, questioning whether humanity can hope for more than repeating its own history. Divided into three sections--Fiat Homo (Let There Be Man), Fiat Lux (Let There Be Light), and Fiat Voluntas Tua (Thy Will Be Done)--Canticle is steeped in Catholicism and Latin, exploring the fascinating, seemingly capricious process of how and why a person is canonized. --Paul Hughes"

3. Looking Backward by Edward Bellamy
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0451527631/sr=8-1/qid=1143149456/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-9593125-4239232?%5Fencoding=UTF8
(Older copy than on amazon.)
From amazon: "Edward Bellamy's utopian novel about a nineteenth-century Bostonian who awakes after a sleep of more than one hundred years to find himself in the year 2000 in a world of near-perfect cooperation, harmony, and prosperity. The novel had an enormous impact at the time of its publication, setting in motion a wave of reform activity and creating a vogue for utopian novels that continued over the next three decades."

4. The Island by Peter Benchley
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0385131720/sr=8-1/qid=1143149551/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-9593125-4239232?%5Fencoding=UTF8
(From the author who brought you Jaws! An interesting read about boats the disappear in the Burmeda Triangle.)

5. Birth Control in America: Woman's Body, Woman's Right by Linda Gordon
This book detail the history of BC in the US. Beginning with BC's place in ancient culture and ending with the feminist movement of the 1960s and 70s. A very interesting read that was heavily researched.

I think it works more like a chain??  As in you can only claim from the last person to post a list.  I could be wrong, so any insight on this would be good.  Otherwise I would be more than willing to send the book you asked for.

Yep, it works in a chain, so you pick from Rain only.  Sorry.  Perhaps you and Dabba can arrange a personal swap for the book you want from her or wait until Dabba post's again. 

Also,

I need to know if the following people have sent

2.  Rain is sending to iloveyou330  (by 03/20)
3.  iloveyou330 is sending to Kasie (by 03/20)
4.  Kasie is sending to Dabba (by 03/23)


Please let me know...Oh!  If I'm not giving you enough time let me know...I know there was talk of putting a crafted item with the book/mag you send, this is optional, if you need more time let me know. 

If you HAVE PM'd me please PM me again, I seem to have lost some PM's (I may have got delete happy  Embarrassed )
