Second Hand Book Swap

I have a rather exciting post for you all today! I have decided to run a second hand book swap. So, basically everyone who wants to take part will be coupled with a person and will send your books to eachother. You will then get a second hand copy of a book (from a charity shop, an old one of your own, from a library sale or where ever you may find one) and enclose in it an inscription in the front of the book or a little card with a friendly message. You could perhaps send your favourite book or a book you have recently read and enjoyed.

How to take part

Comment below in this format:

Email Address:
Twitter handle:

Blog address:

Then I will do a mass email to everyone who wishes to take part on the 20th February (which will be the deadline to comment expressing your wish to take part) and you will have to reply with your home address. I will then couple with another person who will be your swap partner.


-Under 16s must have parents permission to share email address
-Comment deadline is 20th February
-Book to be sent by 10th March
-You should do a blog post about the book
-Don't spend over £5 on the book
-UK only due to postage costs

I hope this made sense and I look forward to hearing from anyone who wants to take part.

You can tweet about the swap with the hashtag #EDBloggerBkSwap
