there are a lot of book swaps out there that have to do with making things from book themes ... but has anyone on here every swapped books? maybe i'm just crazy, but i think it would be a cool idea to have a swap where everyone exchanges their favorite book or just a book they enjoyed reading (it could be based on a certain topic) and then by a certain date everyone could send the book back to their partner. would anyone be interested?

I am in love with the idea of swapping books. It involves 2 of my most favorite things:
Reading & Getting Mail!

They did a Reading Rainbow swap awhile back where you were sent a Tote, a Bookmark and a Book, so it's kinds been done before. But it's such a fun idea and a great way to broaden your horizons.

sending a book and not getting it back would be a great idea, i just wasnt sure if anyone would be willing to give up a book they really enjoyed reading. i know tons of people who keep everything they've ever read and only lend them out (like they own their own little library). i guess i missed that reading rainbow swap. but if a lot of people are interested in this swap i just might think about organizing it. (i've never organized before and it seems kind of scary)

ooo, this sounds fun, although I do like the idea of just sending them to the other person, and not getting it back better

I'd definately be up for this though

I'd be up for it. I'd like to do it where everyone sends a book and receives a different book.

I like this idea! I love reading.. i don't know if I could give up a favorite book, I would probably go out and buy a copy of it to send out.. also I like the idea of including a bookmark or other book inspired craft with it!
