2nd Annual Christmas Book Swap

*This is a sticky post and will remain at the top until November 28th. Please scroll down to read my regular posts. *


Last year I hosted a Christmas book swap. It was so successful that I'm going to host it again this year.

This will be loads of fun, just as it was last year. We must get the books in the mail by December 7th to be sure that everyone receives their book before Christmas. So I'm going to make the deadline to sign up November 28th. This will give me time to partner everyone, gather the addresses and let everyone know who their partner is.

Now for the rules. The books have to be Christmas books, either fiction or non-fiction. Christmas decor and cooking magazines are fine if your partner agrees. Talk to your partner and find out the type of books they like and then send them a book or magazine that they can enjoy. Please do not send books that are not Christmas oriented unless it is included as an extra surprise.

Please, if you sign up, be sure that you send a book. What a disappointment to sign up for a swap and receive nothing after you have done your best to send your partner a book that they will enjoy.

This was a LOT of fun last year and I hope you will join in. Everyone is welcome. Just leave a comment saying you'd like to take part. You must either have a blog or leave an email address where I can contact you.

  6. Sounds like fun - unfortunately, I always read my Christmas books from the library, so don't have any books to give away. Have fun!

    Love the new look - that Anni does a nice job!

    I would love to think that I will be able to participate again...I think I need to wait till we get a little closer to the deadline and then I will see how things look.
    I guess I just want to make sure that I am able to do things for our neighbors here too.
