Swap Shop.

I was thinking about the "blogland swap" (very fun if you have not been a participant in the past,) and thought to myself, why not have a swap with something that you already have?

Why not have a "Book Swap?" We all have books we've read, loved, and realize we probably wont read again. Why not share the literary love!

Not 100% sure how to work the logistics of this, but why don't we just figure it out as we go along! Please post the book you are willing to trade, if it is a paperback or hardback, and if there is a book you are looking for in particular (or if not, you can be open to anything!) I will then post a list of "swappers" and what they are offering. It will be first come first serve on the "claims." We'll then set a "ship date" and swap away!


As for me, I'm willing to trade Lauren Weisberger's "Chasing Harry Winston." Its a hardback and was a very lighthearted fun read!

Any takers out there? Ready, set, swap!!

Yes please! I have two books I'd love to swap. One is "The Devil Wears Prada" (way better than the movie). And the other is "Hissy Fit," absolutely hysterical book about an interior designer in the South. I'd love to share it!

How fun! I would love to participate, and I've been wanting to read "Chasing Harry Winston" for a while..
I'm willing to swap "Prep" by Curtis Sittenfeld or Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes. Both are hardbacks.. I have others too.

This is such a great idea!!! I am going to look through my books and get back to you as well. I already have Chasing Harry Winston (I'm currently reading it) but maybe we can swap some others?
