Details of swap:
Who doesn't love a good book? And who doesn't love getting a good book without paying the ridiculous prices they are sometimes? In this swap, we will be swapping a book that you think your partner will enjoy. And since it isn't a swap without some crafty goodness, we will be making some goodies to send along with the books. Swappers will be matched as best as possible by what kinds of books they want and what kind they have to give.

We will swapping one book, a short note explaining why you enjoyed the book, and two small crafted items. Crafty or non-crafty extras are optional: please discuss with your partner before including anything else! You can craft things to help your fellow reading addicts, like library tote bags or bookmarks, or your crafts can reflect your partner's favorite stories and authors (a knitted Emily Dickinson, or a Slytherin pendent). Used is definitely accepted as long as it's in a decent condition. Don't send a copy of a book that you wouldn't want to read yourself due to its conditions.

I thought of something.  We live on the Northshore so if (I get in the swap) my partner would like something from New Orleans, I can include it/them.  The nicer Mardi Gras beads, beignet mix, pralines (they come in original, creamy, cafe au lait, chocolatey and banana foster), postcards of the city.  That kind of stuff.

Thinking, thinking, thinking...
Hmm, I'm on a very strict craft budget right now and am trying to figure out if I have enough stashed supplies that I could make it work without buying anything major....

I'm a total book addict!
