Karizma Sad I missed this! Guess that's what happens when i'm inactive. 🤔 1y
StellarDoc @Karizma I haven't been very active, either. I missed a lot of holiday swaps I'd otherwise have participated in. 1y
Karizma There's always something else right around the corner. Perhaps #galentines? 1y
StellarDoc @Karizma Perhaps! 1y

Station Eleven | Emily St John Mandel

Happy #Galentines Day! A few weeks ago, we did a #podcollab with the lovely women over at the @friendlierpodcast about social reading. Kendra and I talked about the different kinds of social reading and I talk about the first book I read because of social media — STATION ELEVEN! Listen here: www.readingwomenpodcast.com/blog/2017/1/31/ep-365-friendlier-pod-collab

What are some of the best books you‘ve found via bookish social outlets?

cariashley One of the best I heard about on Book Riot that I never see posted about anywhere: 2y
thereadingwomen @cariashley I feel like I‘ve seen the paperback before, but the description was unfamiliar to me. It looks incredible! Thanks for putting it on my radar. - A 2y
Stephjones01 Loved that book! 2y
melsimpson I loved this when I read it last year ❤📖 2y

The Swap | Antony Moore
post image

I'm trying to compile a list of swap ideas for next year!

So many people loved the #BookmarkSwap idea. And I know there's the #HalloweenGoesPostal #secretsantagoespostal #hyggeswap but I was wondering if there was anything else you guys were wanting to swap or any other swaps you've heard of?

I'm planning a tshirt swap for February, but I was thinking of a coffee/tea swap, or a bullet journal supply swap. What do you guys think? #swap

JazzFeathers The coffee/tea would be awesome 🤗 2y
JackOBotts I like the idea of a notebook/#bujo swap...though my notebook addiction is serious. In fact, all of these (T-shirt, coffee/tea, etc.) sound like fun! 2y
CoffeeK8 No other ideas but I like the ones you came up with! 2y

PandaPanda @Mommamanzi did an amazing retellings swap this year! 2y
MatchlessMarie I think a blind date with a book swap might be fun. Or maybe an online white elephant would be neat. https://m.wikihow.com/Have-an-Online-White-Elephant-Gift-Exchange?amp=1 2y
LeahBergen There's a coffee and book club (or swap?) going around on here right now that looks fun. I love the idea of a #TeaAndBook swap! ☕️ 📚 2y
TricksyTails All great ideas! I like the bullet journal/notebook and coffee ideas. But I'm picky about coffee and don't like artificial flavors. I was thinking of starting a swap for comfort foods and books but don't think I'll manage it. I like the idea though. Books and a movie? I'll keep thinking. 🤔 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails chocolate swap? 2y
TricksyTails Who can say no to chocolate? Oh.... wait. There was a meme thingy going around about chocolate preferences and there were surprisingly many who don't like chocolate. Well for the people who do like it, you could determine their preference in the survey (dark, milk, etc). Coffee and chocolate go well! I'm hoping someone gets me and sends me that special maple coffee *cough cough* 😂 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails cough cough hahahahahah 😂 we could always do our own swap, if you want. Just the two of us. I'd be down for that later towards the new year. It seems we have A LOT in common. 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails I am in Canada though, so shipping prices might be lame. 2y
TricksyTails LET'S DO IT!!! 👍😆 2y
Aloisi_tribe What about a Christmas ornament swap? 2y
Clwojick @Aloisi_tribe omg! Yes! That is a good one! 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails hahah okay email me, and we can work out the details, I might have to start looking for ideas now, but maybe we can ship it out closer to the end of January? That'll give me enough time to find some goodies. 😉 and we can figure out what the other person likes, etc. I will seriously have to restrain myself from not buying any of the books on my TBR though. I'm always so bad at joining swaps, then going out and finding good deals... 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails ... and buying them for myself. 🙈🙈 seriously. It's so hard, I have a thrift store that's a 5 min walk from my work, and they have 50% off books or 10/$5 atleast once a week. How you you say no to 50 cent books, the most I've ever paid there was $1 per book. 2y
monalyisha Coffee & t-shirts sound rad! Socks, maybe? 2y
DiruVamp LOVE the bullet journal swap idea! I‘m a total bullet journal nerd! 🤓 washi, stickers, notebooks ahhhh heaven! 2y
TricksyTails You live in the BEST place with your libraries and thrift stores and maple coffee!! 😆 I'm guilty of the same! I'll end up buying for myself instead! Let's focus on doing ours after all the other ones you've got going on. I am in no rush whatsoever. Besides, it'll give me time to start stockpiling goodies! 😜 No stress. Take care of the swaps you got going first. I'll email you soon so we can figure this out! Yay! Excited!! 👏😁 2y
Clwojick @DiruVamp same. I am a serious addict when it comes to stationary and scrapbook supplies 2y
DiruVamp @Clwojick I hope you get enough interest in that one! Im already thinking of so many cool ideas 😂 2y
Aleida Tote bag swap! 2y
Aleida @Clwojick I love stationary too. And really nice pencils. 2y
mdm139 Love the idea of bullet journal or reading journal plus supplies swap. What about a coloring book and supplies swap? Cook book and small kitchen dodad swap? Puzzle book swap? 2y
Clwojick @mdm139 loving them all! Writing them down! Maybe I'll host a different one every month or two. 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails @mdm139 Maybe Valentine's Day Stocking stuffers? I know stockings are normally Xmas, but little gifts similar to what you'd stuff a stocking with. Or maybe for #ChristmasinJuly 2y
mdm139 @Clwojick christmas in july would be fun, christmas book cozy socks etc but maybe hard to find small christmas items in july 2y
BethM @BookishMarginalia also hosts cupidgoespostal and summer Santa. I like the idea of coffee and tea. I would also love a culture swap- you must get someone from a different country/culture and items should be centered around things specific to the region. 2y
mdm139 @Clwojick valentines chocolate/candy swap would be fun with romance books or books with red covers 2y
BethM Maple coffee 😱I go to Ontario every spring and I've never seen any. Must. Look. Harder. 2y
BethM @mdm139 love the romance idea! 2y
mdm139 @BethM love the culture swap or local product/souvoner swap. A book by a local author or based in the town/state or nonfiction about local history plus souvenors like postcards, tshirts, magnets etc 2y
BethM @mdm139 yes that makes it so much less narrow!! 2y
Clwojick @mdm139 @bethm a book tote from your local library or book store 😉 2y
mdm139 @Clwojick yes that would be so cute👍people in big cities can focus on their city, people in small towns can focus on their state or country 2y
BethM @mdm139 @Clwojick I'm buying stuff before we lose one of our bookstores bc they carry that stuff😁 2y
Clwojick @bethm BUY ALL THE BOOKISH THINGS! 🤗🤗🤗 2y
TricksyTails Why can't it be Christmas every month of the year? I vote we make it so! Not a romance reader but love the idea. 2y
TricksyTails PS You are not allowed to buy yourself anything for a while! At least anything with pictures. I've already ordered for our swap! 😜📚🎁 2y
TricksyTails I like the library book tote idea! Very much like the local/culture swap! Stationery! Pens! Notebooks! Socks! Coffee!! ALL THE THINGS! 2y
BookwormAHN Tea/coffee swap sounds cool also @BethM idea of a culture swap sounds awesome. 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails actually laughed out loud. ALL THE THINGS! I say that all the time 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails should I also stay away from the GN section at the library? 😜 2y
TricksyTails 😂 We have much in common! No, by all means enjoy the GN at the library so I can see the ones you really love! 😆👍 I wouldn't be THAT cruel to you and deprive you of that reading pleasure. Besides, how am I going to get my GN fix if you're not taking pictures for me? 😉 2y
Clwojick @TricksyTails lol @ you buying thing already! I might have been search for some goodies already too. 😏 2y
JPeterson What is this maple coffee? I feel like I must find some. Mmm. Sounds delicious. And I love the coffee/tea, tote, and bullet journal idea. I was also thinking I'd love to do a graphic novel/comic swap, and do a few of your favorite trades or a full volume. 2y
TricksyTails @JPeterson Right? Who do we need to know to send us some maple coffee? Also, if you hurry, I think @JenlovesJT47 is doing a #GeekyGraphicNovelSwap. Not sure if the deadline ended yet but go see! I think @Clwojick should do one too. Never too many graphic novels, right? 2y
MatchlessMarie @Clwojick Time to go write some ranty letters about why our libraries don‘t have book totes 😜 2y
TricksyTails 😂 Heh... I *might* have been buying things already! No shopping for you! (For yourself anyway 🙅🏻) 2y
Clwojick @MatchlessMarie do it!! Our library sells totes for $4 and they are fantastic 😏 2y
A_planNerd I'm literally fangirling over all these cute ideas. What about a mug swap? I can NEVER stop myself from purchasing funny/sparkly mugs. 2y
Avanders Wonderful idea!! 🤗I believe swaps that haven‘t been mentioned yet that I‘ve heard of are @MaleficentBookDragon ‘s #AllHallowsReadBookExchange and @mabell ‘s #LetsGetCozy... 2y
MaleficentBookDragon I plan on doing another #allhallowsreadbookexchange next year and I love the #letsgetcozy one. Also anything #hygge is fun. I also suggest a #GalentinesDay book swap. For those that do not watch Parks and Rec. It is Ladies Celebrating Ladies in Feb 13tj. We could do books by women only. 2y
jenniferw88 You've missed out on #booktoteswap hosted by @cobwebmoth! I was thinking about a #retellingswap, except this time doing retellings of classic books rather than fairytales. 2y
mabell So many fun ideas! #letsgetcozy hosted by @cobwebmoth was my first swap and I loved that theme. ( @Avanders I wish I could take credit for it! ☺️) 2y
JenlovesJT47 I was thinking of doing something around Valentine's Day but haven't decided on a theme. That might be a good time to do a chocolate themed swap. 🙃 2y
Avanders @mabell whoops! That‘s right! @cobwebmoth did both the #letsgetcozy and the #booktoteswap! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💖 Brain was too tired last night 😴 2y
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon yay!! And love the galantines idea! 👏🏽♥️👏🏽 2y
rustoryhuf I love swaps and sad I missed the book tote. Just need to get on #Litsy more often. #galentines for the win! 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes I was also thinking about a bullet journal supply swap! Super fun idea. I'm loving the galentines swap idea as well--and there should totally be a summer one too, for vacay stuff/beach reads/road trip-themed gifts, etc. or like fun summer stuff you used to have fun with as a kid. A SUMMER READING PROGRAM-themed swap! Yes!! 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes I missed the hygge swap, let's get cozy and the retellings swap this year, but I am in for next year. Oh--and I'm also down to host one of the new swaps if that's needed! So long as people with more followers than I have signal boost the shit out of it. 😂 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @MaleficentBookDragon Too bad you can't send waffles in the mail, amirite? 😂 I ❤️ parks and Rec, awesome idea. 2y
TamarackTrail Bujo supplies for sure!!!! 2y
Chelleo What about a crafting swap. It could cover multiple crafts like bullet journaling, knitting/crochet, scrapbooking. Just indicate your crafts in the sign up. I'd love to do a tshirt or wearables (shirts, socks, scarves,etc) swap. A beauty swap would be fun (makeup, soaps, lotions, hair accessories). 2y
