Summer Reads Book Swap

Thursday, May 21, 2015


I have recently gotten into reading. I used to hate it as a kid but now I'm wondering what I was thinking all those years! I feel like I just have to share my passion with everybody I meet. So luckily I met Chelsie from Life With Rosie and she loves to read probably more than I do. So we talked and we decided to start a book swap/book club!

Because summer is my favorite time of year and you can sit outside a read a book, I'm super excited that Chelsie wanted to create the Summer Reads Book Swap! She was inspired by a previous book swap she participated in (which I unfortunately didn't get to) and so we (read Chelsie) created this lovely swap for all of y'all (and me) to join in. Let us know if you like it, want to do it more regularly, or just tips or whatever for the book club!
