Every town has a story. Experience small-town life and American history with this nearly wordless picture book. A magical newspaper takes a young boy on a journey through the history of a beloved hometown, from the 1860s to present day. Striking illustrations celebrate main-street Americana as the boy discovers the past and its importance.

@oOArankaOo I love that we had very different ideas of how to do this swap and everything that you sent. I cannot wait for it to cool down so I can try out the recipes! I have been trying to keep away from the sweets because they will go fast once I open them. Also, how did you know that I LOVE notebooks with graphs instead of lines?! I am super late posting this but so glad for all of it. Thanks @MicrobeMom @readinginthedark #hometownswap

oOArankaOo Yay, I'm so glad you like what I put together even though we had vastly different interpretations of the swap (have I mentioned how jealous I am of The Strand?! 🤩). Let me know how the dishes turn out! Also, the liquorice ones might not be to your liking - I know of exactly 1 foreigner who hasn't grown up with this flavour who likes it.. It's def a Dutch thing! 14mo
TsundokuAleax @oOArankaOo this makes me so much more excited to try the licourice. And I get the jealousy over The Strand. I usually only get there every few years and plan to spend a few hours when I go. 14mo
TsundokuAleax @oOArankaOo So I took the drops to knitting just so there could be a larger group and surprisingly a lot of the older ladies liked them. They compared them to Good and Plenty. Personally not my speed but now you know what to compare them too. 14mo

I‘ve been to Florida many times (Orlando, Cocoa Beach, Tampa), but never to Jacksonville! I cannot thank you enough @Madamereginald for all the amazing goodies in this box!! I have wanted a Funko Pop for AGES and was SO EXCITED to see these in my box!! I love all things Disney! I also loved the treats from Sweet Pete‘s and already tried some 😁 I can‘t wait to read the books from a local author. I think I need to visit Jacksonville! #hometownswap

kstadt929 Thank you so much @Madamereginald !! The magnet went right up on my fridge. And thanks to @readinginthedark and @MicrobeMom for hosting this fun swap!! ❤️ (edited) 1y
MicrobeMom Yay! Looks like a great package! 1y
Madamereginald @kstadt929 yay!!! I am so glad you like everything! And if you ever visit Jacksonville, Let me know! I‘ll take you to all the cool places, especially Sweet Petes!

Just opened my #HometownSwap box and @debthmpsn did an amazing job. She also included a note with each item describing why it matched her home town. We also have the same taste in books. We both sent each other A Discovery of Witches without either one of us knowing it. I can not wait to read my books. Thank you so much. @readinginthedark @MicrobeMom

debthmpsn I‘m glad you liked your books. I struggled with finding things as well and really had to think outside the box. Probably would have been easier if I lived in Detroit, but I‘m about 3 hours north..... :) 1y

@GoodForCirculation did you receive your package? It says delivered but the address on the tracking doesn't match what's on my receipt from the post office so now I'm worried.

TieDyeDude Yeah, my apartment is weird with packages. They have to try to deliver, but they can't leave them at the building, so I have to pick up at the post office the next day. All good, though 1y

Sorry for the last minute update, everyone! I've been out of town and super swamped lately, but mostly just not motivated to be on my phone much. Anyway...opening day is tomorrow! If you haven't received your package or heard from your swapmate that it's on the way, please contact me or @MicrobeMom ! As far as I know, there have only been a couple of issues, which are being resolved. But I don't want to miss anyone. Get excited!#HometownSwap

CSeydel I can‘t wait! I feel like my box has been sitting here for ages! @AWahle - I hope my box to you has arrived. 1y

After much planning, I bring you: the #HometownSwap! We‘ll be sending books and other items from our hometowns, states, or countries. Get to know more about your fellow Littens and where they live! Please review the @LitsySwaps guidelines before signing up to participate. Sign-ups end on June 6 or at 60 participants, whichever comes first, and the open date will be August 8. And pass this on!
Sign-up at https://goo.gl/forms/OaEfUxGVkj4x6Bbm1

Beatlefan129 I‘m fairly new to Litsy so I‘ve never done a swap before. Where can I find the guidelines? 1y
readinginthedark @Beatlefan129 Like @jenniferw88 said, they‘re on @LitsySwaps . You should be able to scroll down and find the info. It‘s mostly about being respectful, fulfilling your commitments to send a package, and not misusing personal information. 1y
Mitch Such a great idea- this is going to be fun to put together. I‘ve just submitted my response but forgotten to add that I‘m a lover of maps! Could you add it in for me! Sorry. I was just so excites I pressed submit too quickly! 🤣🤣 1y
readinginthedark @Mitch Of course! 😊 I‘m excited, too! And maps are so amazing; I‘ll have to add that to mine, as well! 1y

LeeRHarry This sounds fab - thanks for organising @readinginthedark and @MicrobeMom 😊 1y
readinginthedark @LeeRHarry You‘re welcome! 1y
RowReads1 I have a possibly somewhat paranoid concern about who might be my match related to my hometown. Can we talk off Litsy somewhere? 1y
readinginthedark @RowReads1 Sure! You can email me at readinginthedark1988@outlook.com or message me on Goodreads. 1y
RowReads1 @readinginthedark I changed my mind about doing the swap. I‘ve got to watch my pennies. Good luck all 😀 1y
rather_be_reading thts awesome! 1y
readinginthedark @RowReads1 Understandable, maybe next time! 1y

erzascarletbookgasm This sounds fun! 1y
RainyDayReading Ah man I would love to do this! Too bad I can‘t afford to do more than one swap at a time right now otherwise I‘d totally jump on board. I hope you do another one of these in the future! 1y
readinginthedark @RainyDayReading Oh, I completely understand! We‘ll see how this one turns out, but I would love to do another if it‘s successful! 1y
