The Valentine’s Ninja Book Swap!

Welcome to the third Ninja Book Swap, run by Bex at An Armchair by the Sea and myself. We had such a great response in July and October that we decided (it didn’t take much deliberation, we admit) it’s going to be a thrice yearly event – Valentine’s, Summer and Halloween. This, in case you haven’t guessed, is the Valentine’s version!

those who didn’t participate last time (and why not?!) the basic idea
behind it is that everybody who wants to participate is matched up with
somebody else and sends them a parcel containing a couple of books from
their wishlists, plus a card and a little present of some description.

Sound good? Want to join in? Of course you do! Here’s what you do:

  • Send
    us an email at ninjabookswap(at)outlook(dot)com. You are
    very welcome to sign up for one of each, or two of one, but please send
    us two separate emails as it’s easier to keep everything straight that
    way! You need to send us you sign up email by 30th January. 
  • In
    the email/s we need the following information: your name, address, blog
    link, wishlist link, list of likes and dislikes (e.g. I like chocolate,
    bookmarks, and Harry Potter, I dislike pink things, sparkly things,
    dogs), and whether you’re willing to send internationally (or would prefer not
  • We
    will then match you up with your swappee and send you the information on February 1st.
    You then need to do your shopping, make a lovely parcel and send it out
    no later than February 10th. Please be sure to get proof of postage.
  • Once
    you have sent your parcel please send us an email letting us know, and
    another email when you have received your parcel. This is so that we can
    make sure that nobody is left out.  

If you’d like to
post about what you get that would be great – once the parcels start
arriving we’ll put up a post where you can link up your posts as well. You can follow us @ninjabookswap on Twitter, where we’ll post reminders and link to everybody’s goodies when posts start to go up.

Any questions, e-mail us at the above address… otherwise, we can’t wait to hear from you!

Happy swapping!
