MNF's August swap. Recycle and Read
Due to the ill health of Nottougly, sjc48, (Shirley) and I thought it would be a good idea to give her a break from hosting a new swap for August. Shirley has agreed to co-host with me so we are going to go ahead and post our idea. Faye, I hope you don't mind but we know you have been very ill and didn't want to bother you about this. You have enough to deal with.
August MNF Used Book Swap!
For August we'll be doing a Used Book Swap! We'll be sending a used gardening book, cookbook, herb book, or gardening craft book AND along with the book, you will be sending some of the seeds mentioned in the book!
Seeds only please, because of the heat.
Where to find the books?
your own bookshelves, ebay, used book stores, yard/garage sales. Also Alibris or Amazon, but the shipping could get pricey.
Where to find the seeds?
your stash or from your garden; the big box stores might have them on sale; dollar store seeds are okay too.
You are welcome to use a padded envelope but either way, remember Delivery Confirmation is a must? Please do not use book rate postage as this can be a lengthy delivery time.
You have until August 12 to sign up.
When you have picked out your book, email me with the title, whether it is hard or soft back, how many pages, and in what condition. Maybe even a bit of a description. I would like to include a bit of information on the book for the next owner.
Also include your full name and home address.
I'll post the books, and the order in which we get to chose our books on August 13.
And how do we know who gets to choose first?
It's quite simple: the first person to pick a book will be the person who has used the word "book" the most in his/her posts to this swap! Then the second highest number, and on and on--
Our July swap was so full of conversation and energy, we are hoping to keep that going.
You will have until August 19 to mail your book.
Anyone ready to get some new reading material, come on and join in and let's start talking!!!!!
