I like this idea too. Maybe the swap could include a new book in the person's preferred genre (YA, murder mysteries, women's fiction, etc.), and then the person sending the swap would send an unread book in that genre that they had read, and handmade items  from the book to go along with it (So for Harry Potter as an example since nearly everyone has read it/seen the movies, you could send book 1 along with a wand, a Gryffindor scarf, house crest, pumpkin juice, etc.). Of course the swapee would have to discover the meaning of said things as they read through the book. Love it!

I really like this idea Smiley

I'm in Australia so if I were to post a few books the postage would be a killer.

My idea continues on with chrmisha said. We could be partnered up with someone who likes a similar genre, choose one book that you love but your partner hasn't read and craft items that go with the book. Maybe a 4 point swap with one months crafting time.

You could also craft book/reading themed items, such as bookmarks, book holders Smiley
