It's been a long time since there was a book swap! Imagine yourself eagerly ripping open a package, and relaxing on a lawn chair or hammock with a good read!
For this swap, we'll focus on non- fiction: how-to books, biographies, historical books, cookbooks, nature..
Sign up will be until June 1st, and mail your book with NO tucks (so you can legally take advantage of postal book rate) within a week.
If you haven't already sent your address to me, please do that after you sign up (I'm starting a Farmgirl address collection!). Also, if you do sign up, please contact your partner right away and send the book in a timely manner. Nobody likes to be disappointed. Show off your new book when you post it on this thread.
Here are the book assignments:

Vanessa - Audra Rose to Marie
Marie - churunga to Darlene
Darlene - darlenelovesart to Marlene
Marlene - mburns to Terri
Terri - Tchr66 to Laura
Laura - LauraBell to Judith
Judith - StitchinWitch to Vanessa
Remember, just include a short note if you want to send it by Media Mail.

Welcome,ladies! I think we'll send just one book, to keep it affordable and easy to choose from your personal library.

Just reading this and wanted to let you know, if you add anything to your package other than a book you aren't allowed to send it book rate. (Media mail) you can't even add a card but you can put a slip of paper in the book with a note on it. Also the postal is allowed to open the package to check.

This looks fun. Count me in also, please. I already have the book picked out of my library. I will go home and get it wrapped up so I am not late again.

Can I play too? I do have lots of books to share since the library hasn't been taking them since covid started. Large print preferred but not required.

Hi everyone :)

My company all left yesterday and I've had a bit to put things back to right. I'll head out to the post office tomorrow.

Have a great Tuesday - stay cool - it's ridiculously hot here in Texas.
