I can't believe it's been a whole year since Bex and I began running the Ninja Book Swaps. This will be the second Summer Ninja Book Swap and the fourth Ninja Book Swap, which we've only been able to pull off due to the huge interest from all of you.

A huge thanks to everybody that's participated so far and a huge welcome to everybody that hasn't!

Basically, at a set date you'll receive a list of your partner's likes and dislikes, and also a link to their bookish wishlist. It's your mission to put together a nice shiny package for your partner, including at least one book and something extra that you know they'll love. Naturally somebody else will be doing the same for you and the result is a lot of very happy people sobbing tears of joy over their new books.

How to join in:

Email with:

       - your name and address details 

       - a link to your blog

       - a link to your book wishlist or alternatively a list of ten books you really want to read

       - a short list of your likes and dislikes (e.g. I like chocolate, Harry Potter and silver jewellery, I dislike pink things, bookmarks and anything overly girly)

        - shipping preference - are you happy to send you parcel internationally or would you prefer to send only within your own country?

You can even send/receive two parcels if you'd like, just be sure to let us know.

The rules:

  1. Email us at telling us all the above things by Sunday May 25th 
  2. Go shopping! And post your parcel by Monday June 30th - this is to give everybody plenty of time to shop as lots of people had issues with not having enough time last time. You can of course post it before this deadline if you're ready!
  3. PLEASE buy a book or two from your recipients wishlist as this is the only way (unless you already know them well) you'll know they don't have or haven't read the book already. 
  4. Books can of course be second hand but please do not send copies in a condition you'd be unhappy to receive yourself and PLEASE do not send anything that is obviously a promotional copy (e.g says '£1 with Galaxy Chocolate/The Daily Express) as it makes it seem like you've not bothered!
  5. Email us once you have SENT and RECEIVED your parcel, so we can keep track and make sure that everyone's playing fair :-) 
  6. Please get proof of postage when sending your parcel, as if you don't and the parcel goes missing you a) won't be able to claim via Royal Mail and b)won't be able to participate in future swaps.
That's about it! If you have any questions, e-mail us or you can talk to us on Twitter at @NinjaBookSwap.

Happy swapping!
