ONGOING BOOK/MAGAZINE SWAP

Original Thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83212.0

ATTENTION ALL SWAPPERS -
ALL SWAPPERS MUST BE PRE-APPROVED FOR THIS SWAP.  YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE UNLESS YOU PM ME AND I ADD YOU TO THE LIST! Anyone watching this thread who thinks they might be interested in participating at a later time is very, VERY welcome to pm me answering the swap questions now...and then you can participate whenever you want. Feel free to be pre-approved even if you're not sure that you will actually pick someone, it's better to be safe than sorry! THANK YOU!

YOU HAVE TO BE PREAPPROVED TO CLAIM SOMEONE. PLEASE CHECK THE LIST TO SEE IF YOU ARE PREAPPROVED BEFORE YOU CAN POST A LIST OR CLAIM SOMEONE TO SEND YOU A BOOK!


WHEN YOU SEND ME YOUR INFORMATION, YOU MUST HAVE ATLEAST 3 BOOKS/MAGAZINES ON YOUR LIST. THIS IS JUST TO INSURE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A LIST READY!! SAVE A COPY OF WHAT YOU SEND ME IN YOUR OUTBOX SO YOU HAVE IT

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:  Ongoing Book Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Your list:
1.
2.
3.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE with ONGOING BOOK SWAP AS YOUR SUBJECT AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

Swap name: Ongoing Book/Magazine Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: dabba
Sign-up date range: ongoing
Date to send item by: 1 week after you are chosen
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): HECK NO!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes
All ages allowed? Or 18+? All Ages
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

Please READ CAREFULLY! This is a  new style of swap, and it works differently than most.

The first person puts a list together of all the books that they can SEND, there must be atleast 3 books (WITH PICTURES IF POSSIBLE...or a link to a website that has the book maybe). YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY BOOKS/Magazines ON THERE, AS LONG AS THERE IS A MINIMUM OF THREE!

Then people will read your list, if they want a book/magazine, they will reply to the thread and say "i want Jenny to make me a Bust Magazine" or whatever they want off of their list. When they reply, they will also say "this is my first/second claim". They should then PM "jenny" and give them their address info.  IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS (your number of claims) WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!

THEN COMES THE NEXT PART. YOU WILL NOW POST THE LIST OF BOOKS/MAGAZINES YOU CAN SEND. (Since I am requiring you to have a list when you sign up, make sure that you save it, you DONT have to have pictures as an example, but it would be nice. IF YOU HAVE PICTURES, PLEASE POST LINKS, NOT THE FULL PICTURE)

Then someone picks you to send a book/magazine to them.
Then they post their list, and so on.

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last list should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides they want you to send them something.

YOU HAVE ONE WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR, I FIGURE SINCE WE DON'T REALLY HAVE TO DO ANY CRAFTING FOR THE SWAP 7 DAYS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO THE POST OFFICE, IF NOT LET ME KNOW.  Please be communicative if you are having any issues. THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP - Don't forget to get a DC NUMBER when shipping in your own country!

You can participate as many times as you want but no person can "owe" more than 2 things at a time.

PLEASE LIST YOUR COUNTRY
(even if you're from the US, still list your country! not everyone lives in the US!)

LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND I CAN ANSWER AND MODIFY THIS INFORMATION


*******

PRE-APPROVED SWAPPERS

People pre-approved to participate in this swap - If you have a number next to your name that means you owe that many wishes (updated every 24 hours at the least) - LIMIT of 2! - help me by not having more than 2 outstanding wishes at a time please!: ( i will try to keep this in alphabetical order so that you can find your name easier!)

The number next to your name will be how many you have outstanding (meaning how many haven't recieved yet).
TEAL will mean that you can't claim anyone else until your partner receives.


THERE WAS TALK OF INCLUDING CRAFTED BOOKMARKS WITH THE ITEM YOU SEND, THIS IS NOT MANDATORY BUT FEEL FREE TO INCLUDE ONE IF YOU LIKE.

Just a reminder!!!

Please PM me with your info.  Even if you were in the last round, I still need it.  Also put how many times you have claimed.  You can only have 2 out at a time and yes they did transfer over.  And make sure that you pm your address to the person you claim from. 

That is all Smiley

This looks like an awesome swap, I'm really considering joining!
Just a question though, I didn't really see this in the rules...
are you allowed to ask for more than one book from the same person for the same claim? Or can you only choose one? I know you are only allowed to "owe" 2 books at a time, so does that mean you can only ask for 2 books at one time? Just a bit confused there, sorry!

Just to make things simple:  one book at a time.  you can claim from the same person twice as long as they were 2 different times.  I hope that clears things up for you.

Also, I haven't been PMing people back when they send in their info.  Just figure that if you were in the last swap you are good for this one.  I'm just making the list to make sure everyone who is still interested is on it.

You also don't need to send me your address if you have issues with it.  Just please make sure that you send the person who you claim from.  Hope this covers everything Smiley

OK NEW RULE!!!!  I am going to trust that you sent out on the last swap so from here on out, they will not carry over!  So as of now, everyone can have 2 out.  I just got the pm for highschoolcrafter and the book was received.  I hope this helps because I noticed a lot of trade between US and Canada in the last one and it seems to take FOREVER to get through customs for some reason.  I hope this helps!

Hi, today I talked to a few friends about the books they're reading for a book report. One of my friends is reading "The Running Man" and I thought it sounded really interesting. Does anyone have this, and if so, are you willing to part with it? Otherwise I'll just buy it off Amazon.

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

Sorry iloveyou, no Running Man. It does sound pretty awesome. I'd try the library before I bought it, but I'm a cheapskate like that.

Also, I updated my list with a few magazines.

Let's try this again.
My list:

1. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez translated by Gregory Rabassa
From amazon: "The story follows 100 years in the life of Macondo, a village founded by Jos Arcadio Buenda and occupied by descendants all sporting variations on their progenitor's name: his sons, Jos Arcadio and Aureliano, and grandsons, Aureliano Jos, Aureliano Segundo, and Jos Arcadio Segundo. Then there are the women--the two rsulas, a handful of Remedios, Fernanda, and Pilar--who struggle to remain grounded even as their menfolk build castles in the air. If it is possible for a novel to be highly comic and deeply tragic at the same time, then One Hundred Years of Solitude does the trick. Civil war rages throughout, hearts break, dreams shatter, and lives are lost, yet the effect is literary pentimento, with sorrow's outlines bleeding through the vibrant colors of Garca Mrquez's magical realism."

2. A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.
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."

3. Bless Me, Father by Mark Kriegel
From amazon: "Frank Battaglia is a brutal wiseguy, a throwback who laments the passing of the days when lower Manhattan was a mob stronghold. His problems start when he murders his boss in order to move up in the ranks but leaves alive a witness whom the tabloids dub the "mystery blonde." When a clever detective picks up the case and begins leaking details to an aging columnist seeking to relive his glory days, the noose slowly tightens around Frank's neck."

4. The Island by Peter Benchley
An interesting tale about boats the disappear in the Bermuda Triangle. There are murders, mystery and betrayals.

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.

6. The Year My Life Went Down the Loo by Katie Maxwell
From amazon: "Gr. 10-12. Transplanted from Seattle to an English hamlet called Piddlington-on-the-Weld, 16-year-old Emily Williams braces herself for a year abroad. Life in a country "that still has discos!" really "irks her pickle." No makeup is allowed at school, and the uniforms are "gacky"; at home, a poltergeist haunts her panty drawer, and her parents are generally appalling. Emily vents her frustrations in wickedly funny e-mails to her best friend, spiced with British slang and her own idiosyncratic coinages."

7. The Phoenix - The Environmental Issue
(UT's literary magazine. It has student poems, artwork and essays.)
http://web.utk.edu/~phoenix1/

8. Abroad View - Spring 2006 (A mag about studying abroad)

9. E - The Enviormental Magazine - Nov/Dec 2005  - Grounds for Change (about coffee)
http://www.emagazine.com/

10. Italian Favorites Cookbook
(from Target's Dollar Spot, 64 pg, 32 recipes from antipasti to dessert)

11. Breathe magazine - Sept/Oct 2005 - Kevin Bacon is on the cover
www.breathemag.com

12. The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan
From amazon: "The book that changed the consciousness of a countryand the world. Landmark, groundbreaking, classicthese adjectives barely describe the earthshaking and long-lasting effects of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique. This is the book that defined "the problem that has no name," that launched the Second Wave of the feminist movement, and has been awakening women and men with its insights into social relations, which still remain fresh, ever since. A national bestseller, with over 1 million copies sold."

13. I could collect an assortment of newspapers from my town and send those

14. The James Beard Cookbook - 9th printing, printed in 1966
Recipes of all sorts from a cooking giant!

15. Hoyle's rules of games - printed in 1963

16. Selected Tales by Nikola Leskov, translated by David Margarshack
from the back cover: "At his best, Leskov tells his stories simply, almost confidingly, putting incident and observation unpretentiously ... until, before the reader realizes it, he has been led out of the story, and even out of Russia to glimpse some of the mystery of his own existence."

17. You Come Too: Favorite Poems for Young Readers by Robert Frost
92 pages, 51 Frost poems, paperback

18. Ce Monde Des Francais - Langeller and Levy
A hardback French language textbook. Published in 1970. Includes a table of verb conjugations and a glossary. This used book has some writiting in it. About 300 pages, excluding the glossary.
This book would be fun to alter, especially if you speak French. It has lots of lovely pictures.

19. Chez les Francais - Langellier and Levy
A hardback French language textbook. Published in 1969. Includes a table of verb conjugations and a glossary. Focuses on reading in order to speak. This used book has some writting in it. About 350 pages, excluding the glossary.
This book would be fun to alter, especially if you speak French. It has lots of lovely pictures. It has more dialogues and less pictures than the other. I have no clue which of the two is more advanced, as I don't speak French, but I'd guess this one.

20. Some magazines that I've cut up somewhat for my collages. They still have lots of life in them, I just don't think I'll use them any more. I'd send at least two or three of these. I think most of them are fashion mags, like Teen Vogue and Jane.

Most of these are older printings that what you can order on amazon, but they are in fine reading quality. (By which I mean all the pages are there, but the covers have some wear. They aren't in collectable or mint condition, by any means.) I happen to think that older books have a charm to them that newer copies don't, but that's just me.

Sorry I stalled the swap for so long! What sorts of books are you guys looking for?
