Book Swap

About a month ago I did a book swap on my other blog and it seemed to be a hit. In fact, the idea for this blog stemmed from the book swap. So while everyone has received their packages but my good friend Erica, I thought I would post some of the fun books below for everyone to see! (Erica will be returning home 2 days before I leave for vacation, so I will have to post about her fun package later!)

In no certain order, these are some of the books that everyone swapped:

Angels & Demons, by Dan Brown
Just Forgot, by Mercer Mayer
The Whales Go By
Charlotte's Web
Bake Sale
For One More Day
The Ballad of Frankie Silver
The Wee Free Men
Washington Square
by Laurie Anderson
Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, by Ann B. Ross.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, by Eric Carle
Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, by Virginia Lee Burton
At First Site, by Nicholas Sparks
Simple Scrapbooks Magazine
The Secret Life of Bees
Where the Sidewalk Ends

Blueprint Magazine
The Christ Commision,
by OG Mandino
Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke
The Five People you Meet in Heaven, by Mitch Albom
Take me out of the bathtub, by Alan Katz

I enjoyed the book swap so much and I hope that you all did too. I will be doing another swap in a few months, so please check back. If you have any suggestions on how we could make the swap better let me know. One suggestion I had would be to fill a questionnaire about yourself so the swapper could pick better suited books. Any others?

I liked not really knowing the swapper's taste...that's what makes it kind of get a vague idea about that person and thn incorporate your tastes...then you never know what you're going to get. if you fill out a questionarie i would think it would be more likely to get a book they already have..doe sthat make sense?

ANYWAY....this swap was awesome! What a cute idea Debbi!
