Since my last book related swap is did well, I thought I'd bring another bookish swap to the public. It's a fun, but not too quick, email swap about Bookish things.

Swap Requirements ~ minimum 4.9 rating. Newbies & Unrated swappers are welcome, who have BOTH a well filled out profile AND are a member of Newbie Helpers. Must have signed on to SB within two days of swap, have no late swaps on your dash. No recent 1s or 3s. I reserve the right to ban anyone for any reason. Any swapper listed in Questionable Swapper threads will not be allowed in. I'll angel any flaked swaps, though I will do everything I can to keep questionable swappers out of it.

Swap may be sent through email, SB message or blog posting. Please do not send it as an attachment, as some people will not open those. If you send through SB, make sure to hit enter twice after each answer, as to not bunch the swap up in one paragraph mess. Please give some details, not one word answers. Let us know your true thoughts!

This swap is hosted with @StacyReneeArt 's permission, as she first hosted it in March 2013.
