I'm forever buying books and then being left with piles of the buggers.

The idea of swapping them sounds great!

Where do I sign up?

coni336 Thu 16-Jun-11 14:34:33

I want to join one too so let me know if you find one!!

Lexiejack Wed 22-Jun-11 19:04:55

And me smile lol

TheMonster Wed 22-Jun-11 19:09:24

Me too. I never seem to catch one open in time.

coni336 Wed 22-Jun-11 23:24:59

shall we start one? not sure how it works exactly...

Lexiejack Thu 23-Jun-11 10:44:46

Maybe if we search through the other threads we can figure it out? I think we need 12 people and choose 1 book each?

GrandmaW Thu 23-Jun-11 11:19:55

I'd be interested too, please

Lexiejack Thu 23-Jun-11 12:01:04

So I'm guessing we discuss what books we like? Or should we choose a book from each sort of genre? I don't really like sci-fi blush

coni336 Thu 23-Jun-11 14:08:34

ok, yes i agree i don't like sci-fi either, so shall we see if we can get 12 people interested? so far we have 5 if Lorenz is still interested?

TheMonster Thu 23-Jun-11 16:52:31

Do we have a book each and then send it on each month?
No manky really old books though!

Lexiejack Thu 23-Jun-11 17:18:05

God no!! Nice clean lovely smelling new books!!!! grin

coni336 Thu 23-Jun-11 17:21:26

yes i think from the sounds of things we all choose 3 books, write on here what they are an everyone lets you know if they have read any of them already. I guess we can start looking for 3 options and wait to see if we have any new joiners??

Lexiejack Thu 23-Jun-11 18:27:53

Do they have to be recently released books?

BadBuddha Thu 23-Jun-11 18:31:57

Ooh can I join please? I have piles of non manky books I could swap wink

coni336 Thu 23-Jun-11 19:19:32

no i don't think they have to be recently released, just whatever you have on your bookshelf. So far the people interested:

Lexiejack
coni336
BodyOfEeyore
Grandma W
BadBuddha
Lorenz

so need 6 more...

I don't like sci-fi either, or those 'child abuse memoirs' type of books which seem to be around at the moment. I have just got into crime/detective books by a certain author which I would never have read normally, but were recommended to by a friend. Might well make one of those my book club book if that appeals to others.

Lexiejack Fri 24-Jun-11 12:43:27

I like most books from martina cole to chick lit to random biographies and historical ones.

TheMonster Sun 26-Jun-11 11:07:36

I'm up for it.

coni336 Mon 27-Jun-11 08:45:40

ok, so we still need 6 more people to join. Spread the word...!

Lexiejack Tue 28-Jun-11 18:25:47

Come on people!!! Join us lol

BadBuddha Wed 29-Jun-11 09:15:43

Lexiejack Sat 02-Jul-11 22:23:21
