How to Join!

How to Sign Up for Any Swap on this Blog????

I hope that everyone has fun and comes back over and over again for more swapping......

  • So.....here's the scoop!To join any swap:
    Just email me a message at Readernutcase@msn.com put your name, mailing address (guarentee to use for swapping only), email address, and your blog url (if you have one)

  • Then add a line or two about yourself....like is this your first swap, what authors you like,favorite books, or do you have other hobbies, maybe you love to knit, pen pal, or like me do it all....tell me anything you want.
  • Then I will send you an invitation to the blog so you can post here and add your name to the group list of swappers.

  • Then copy and paste the "Wish List" short questions on this blog to your blog, so your partner will learn a little about you...if you don't have a blog you can post them on this blog or I can post a little about you on the swap blog, just let me know in your email. [and be sure to let your partner know if your questions are on your own blog]

  • You will get an email with your partner's email and address around the 12th of the month and the swap begins

  • Mail your partner their book and bookmark and anything else you wish to send them by the end of the month.

  • With your package be sure to theme it to the current theme for example if it were a theme to match the books title: EX: "The Lodge" you might send some country type items, "The Strawberry Shortcake Murder" you might send Strawberry soap, or a candle, or tea, and maybe something red.

  • Or: The theme could be to match your partner's first name with the authors first name. EX: If your partner's name were Debb the author of book might be "Debbie Macomber"
**Every month we will have a different theme.**
