There Was Once an Idea...

Last night McMommy posted some answers to some questions she had received from bloggy friends. (Wait, you still haven't gone over to see her? What are you waiting for? Tell her that Chelle sent you, okay?)

When reading her post I discovered she wants to read this new book that I just bought. I told her that when I was done with mine I would gladly send it to her. Then when she's done she can send it to someone else.

Kind of like Pay it Forward.

Kind of like a Book Swap.

She e-mailed me that she would love the book and hey what about a book swap?

It was like deja vu! I'm telling you, I had just started writing a post about a book club or a book swap.

I think the swap would be easier, because let's face it. I doubt we could all chat at the same time about a book that we all had agreed on. Plus it's always hard to pick out one book for eveyone to like.

But with a swap, wow, that would be awesome!!! When you're done with a book, just make a post about it. First one to comment gets it. For free. Then when they're done they make a post and so on.

What do you think? Would this be fun? Would this be able to work? Are you interested?

I'm almost done with a book by Jennifer Weiner right now. It's good. I love it so far. And I would love to share that with whoever will be my first commenter when I post it's available.

Well, that's it. My exciting post! Are you even a little teensy bit excited? Because I'm really excited!

GREAT idea - I think I would love to do it! I'm heading out of town on vacation for a couple weeks, but will definitely be IN when I'm back!!! Sounds very cool. I've never read Jennifer Weiner but have wanted to for ages . . .

Heck yeah!

How would it work? Would we need to go through you in any way? Or do we do it on our own?

What an awesome idea. I have tons of books just sitting on the bookshelf waiting to be read.

What do I need to do?

I'm a little late on this post, but I would be up for that and I think it would motivate me to actually read and finish books more often. My inner worm needs me to!
