Book Swap Time!

Book Swap
Yee haw! (Yeah, I was raised in Texas.) It's time for another Book Swap. Are y'all ready!?

Here is a short refresher course on what all this involves:

During the last swap Sarah from Library Hospital and I invited you to share your favorite book with a friend. For our winter swap, we're going to try focusing on Children's Books.

The goal of the swap? To share much loved books with new found friends. Perhaps you've made friends with another mom blogger. Maybe you do not have kids but love children's stories. Perhaps you are collecting for your classroom or for a grandchild. Either which way, we invite you to join in and share your children's book of choice.

The rules of the swap?:
1. You only sign up to participate if you are actually willing to follow the rules.
2. Once you sign up you will be matched with another participant. You will take your favorite children's book of choice and mail it to your match and they will do likewise.
3. Books should be in Excellent, Like New, or New condition unless you and your match agree to another condition. **Please note** We are not expecting you to give away your only copy, but to pick your book to swap and then go get a new copy (or if out of print, a copy in good or like new condition) and send that to your match.
4. Book swaps are permanent unless you and your match agree to another arrangement.
5. You must have your book shipped to your match before the end of February.
6. Only the first 50 participants will be included in the swap. If this swap is successful we may increase the number for future swaps.

The timeline of events:

We will leave this Mr. Linky up from February 1st through February 8th or until 50 people have signed up (whichever comes first). If you wish to participate in the swap, you must leave a link to your main blog site. Also, please leave a comment in the comment section providing us with a valid e-mail address where you can be contacted. We will close swapping list on Sunday, February 8th or once we have 50 participants - whichever comes sooner.

On or around February 9th we will contact each of the swap participants and give you your match for the swap. It is then your responsibility to chat with your swap partner about the book you are planning to send them. Once a book has been determined then we ask you to please mail off that book NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20th! If you cannot meet that goal, please do not sign up to participate! We don't want any disappointed partners!

If you have any questions, drop me an e-mail at: readingtoknow (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks, and happy swapping!
