View Full Version : Used Book Exchange Sign Ups - ENDING EARLY! 9/15/06

We have had several used book exchanges in the past. I participated in the last one and really enjoyed it. I would like to host this one, and am hoping there is enough interest to do it!

* PLEASE follow through if you sign up. As everyone will be "choosing" a book, there will be no elves, and we don't want anyone left out.*

If you would like to participate, please PM me the following information:

DIS name
Your name
Address
E-mail address


I will also need the name, author and genre of the book you would like to exchange. You may choose to exchange up to three books. It does not matter whether or not they are paperback or hardback. But there is no guarantee that if you send a hardback, you will receive a hardback.

*The books you exchange must be in very good condition.*

Signups will continue through Friday, September 15. Once I have the list of books to be exchanged, I will contact each participant with the list of books for them to choose from. I am going to ask everyone to pick three books from the list in the order of preference, and I am hoping that it will work out that everyone gets one of their top choices.
Thanks, everyone!

***UPDATE! I forgot to mention - I would like to have people send me a list of twice as many books as they will be sending, so the chances of you getting something you want is good.
For example - if you signed up to send off 3, your list should be for six.
Otherwise you might send someone a book they already have or one they have no interest in.***

What a great idea! This an adult exchange, but maybe someone could host one for children!!!

not a big fan of the historical ones (who needs to have some education snuck in there!!) but I love romance books for breather books.

I am getting the list together and sending it out tonight.
After you receive the list, please send me a PM with your top five choices, in order, and I will try to make sure everyone gets a couple they like.
As soon as I get everyone's preferences, I will send PMs with the addresses to send books to. Make sense?
And as always, extras are welcome if you'd like to send them.
Happy trading!

Did I miss out since I didn't get back to PM my book titles??? If so, I'll have to put my books away for the next one. It's been so busy at school that I haven't been able to get online at night-too tired!

I checked in on the exchange page for the first time forever earlier today, and was so excited to see the used book one up. I thought the cut off for this one was later this month, or I would have replied sooner (today). I really enjoyed the book I got off the last used book exchange! I guess I am too late for this one, but I'll check more often for future book exchanges. Happy exchanging, everyone! :flower:

Good morning exchangers!!
Ok, here's the deal - names will go out sometime today.
I believe that almost everyone will get their first choice!
For every one of your books that was chosen, you will receive a book from someone. For example, if you listed 6 books, and 4 were chosen, 4 books from your "want" list will come to you. Does that make sense? Any questions, just PM me.
Please try to send your books out by the send by date - this Saturday, September 23rd. As always, you are welcome to send "extras", but it is not necessary.
Thanks for joining, and happy reading!
