I'm so excited to announce that I am hosting a Blogger Book Swap!  


What is a book swap?
Well, it's simply a chance for bloggers to meet other bloggers and share their love for books.  We will not only make new friends, but also receive a new book!

What do I have to do?
If you choose to join, you will be paired randomly with another book loving blogger.  I will email you with your partners information, then you can follow each others' blogs and Goodreads profiles. (Don't have one?)  Once you get to know each other, you choose a book & send it to them.  I think it's best to keep the book a secret, and if possible, send them one you have read and loved.  Try not to send them one they've already read if you can avoid it.

How much will I have to spend?
You don't have to spend a lot!  Christmas is coming up and new books can be pricey.  In case you haven't noticed, a used book is still as functional as a brand new one (in most cases).  There's no shame in shopping at a thrift store or from your own shelves.  I, myself, love the feel of a pre-loved book.  Wait, that didn't sound right.
Anyway, shipping shouldn't cost more than {five} dollars.

Then what?
When you do receive your book in the mail, do a little blog about it.  Then, head back over here on November 8th to link it up so we can all share the book swap fun!

I have enlisted the help of some of my favorite bookish blog friends to help me host.  Please check them out & say HI!

Also, please spread the word about the book swap so we can recruit even more bloggers to participate!  If you post about it on twitter, use the hashtag #bloggerbookswap.

Also, please place this button on your sidebar so your readers can share in the fun too!


So now that you have decided that you must participate in this book swap, here are the steps to follow to join in!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me

Can't wait!

**The.book.chat will take a small hiatus for the book swap and will begin back up on November 15.**
