Description:

I thought this would be a fun, easy swap! If you're like me, your to be read pile keeps growing and growing! With summer here, it will keep growing at an even faster rate!

What we'll do in this swap is write up (handwritten or typed) your to be read pile. PLEASE include the title of the author when you do this. If you've got some books you'd like to re-read, feel free to add them to to the list.

Once your list is complete, send it off to your TWO partners!

Not only will we get the chance to see what others are reading, but we'll also get some recommendations of WHAT to read and add to our pile.

Since it's a simple swap, it will be INTERNATIONAL. Newbies are welcome as long as your profile is filled out.

Wow! Hi everyone! Thanks for joining! :D

smokeandmirrors 06/ 4/2007 #

Just a quick question. Do we send the list via the post or e-mail?

lucyellen 06/ 4/2007 #

I really hope this is just for regular postal mail :0)

ohhhkay 06/ 4/2007 #

We're sending via postal mail.

SueFitz 06/ 4/2007 #

This looks like fun.

ohhhkay 06/ 5/2007 #

This is doing to be a lot of fun! I can't wait to see what others are reading! :)

MeaghanLC 06/ 6/2007 #

Good! I need some new authors!

user8819 06/ 6/2007 #

I love sharing books can't wait to see what other people like!

GiddyUpSoldier 06/ 7/2007 #

I'm so excited, I actually finished my swap before I even got partners. Cuz I got books, trust you me, I got books.

ohhhkay 06/ 7/2007 #

I'm about a third of the way through making my list. I'll probably finish it tomorrow before work. I can't believe how small my list LOOKS compared to the way all the books piled up look! Ah well.. there are a ton of books coming out soon that I've added. I'm the one who will run out on release day and get the books. ;)

CandyStar 06/ 9/2007 #

My list of books is going to be scarily long.... and I pity my partners. Hahahaha.

CandyStar 06/ 9/2007 #

Oh gosh - I just typed out my whole list and it's 4 pages long on Word before I put it into columns. Holeh cow.

My "TBR" (to be read) numbers over 3,000 and I am not exaggerating. I will limit my list to my current reading queue which is a manageable number and will probably be more interesting than a list of 3,000 titles :-)

ohhhkay 06/10/2007 #

3,000?! WOW!! That would be a fun list to read and go through to find a lot of new books to read!

user8740 06/10/2007 #

i have a book addiction. i like to buy books and then i find that i dont always have alot of time to sit down and read them, but i continue to buy them anyways. i have books piled on my desk, my dresser, my tv in a cabinet and on my desk at work. i even found one sliding around the back seat of my car. librarians would be angry at my filing system.

the list will be interesting, that much i can promise.

CandyStar 06/10/2007 #

Man I feel not so cool now that I hear you have 3,000... I'm counting my list... but then again the list I typed up leaves off all manga (didn't want to reveal how much of a nerd I was) and several authors I just listed because I want to read everything they've written....

Final number comes to: 76 not counting 3 boxed sets, any manga, and a bunch of authors

I feel less nerdy. Sad. hahaha.

sweetjewels1985 06/11/2007 #

Well I dont feel so bad I'm always buying books and getting them from the library I too pitty my partners but hey might a few new authors out of it at least if not some books that I havent yet read

manders76 06/15/2007 #

Hoo boy. Mine's something like 250--but holy cow, 3000? That's amazing...

MeaghanLC 06/16/2007 #

When are we getting our partners? Mine is ready and waiting....

ohhhkay 06/16/2007 #

I'm going through the list of members today to make sure profiles are filled out and then partners will be assigned today.

Ikyoto 06/16/2007 #

Candy Star- I hope you put the manga back on if you're my partner...I'd be interested in anyones manga/graphic novel picks as well as fiction and not fiction. Nerd Pride!

ohhhkay 06/16/2007 #

Partners have been assigned!

I had planned to have them assigned earlier, but I ended up going to Pride downtown this afternoon. Had a blast! I didn't think I was going to be able to go, but I ended up being able to!

I'll be finishing up my list in the next couple of days!

jeanland 06/17/2007 #

I hope my list doesn't disappoint... I don't have anywhere near 3000, or even 250 for that matter :/ Maybe something like 20? Or 30? I read quickly so maybe that's why... Oh, and I was wondering, is non-fiction okay? I think I might have more non-fiction than fiction... I like to research, hee hee. :)

junemoon 06/17/2007 #

I just took pictures of my two main to-read "piles" -- one is a whole bookcase. Not going to catalog them all. I'll list the ones I have some hope of reading this summer, that should be long enough to boggle my partners' brains ... the operative word is "hope".

PostMuse 06/17/2007 #

Oh, I hope non-fiction is okay!

I am still working on mine. I'm keeping it at about 50 books, maybe less depending on how ambitious I get. And I have to stop adding books to my piles. Came home with two more yesterday.

nicole 06/17/2007 #

WOW.. you guys have A LOT... sure there are a ton of books i want to read but i limited this list to the 12 i hope to get to through the summer! :)

ohhhkay 06/17/2007 #

Of course non-fiction is fine! :)

My list is a lot shorter than I thought. But then again, I've been reading like crazy lately! :D
