You already know about my YouTube addiction, so it’s won’t surprise you that while I was a watching a video, I came up with a great idea. An idea that my real life bff and fellow blogger Miss Print helped bring to life.
After watching Sprinkle of Glitter’s Box Swap video, I posted on twitter that I too wanted to swap a box with someone, but alas didn’t vlog nor have anyone to actually swap with. Prompt to respond Miss Print said “we have all the same books anyway”. While this was true, and a point well taken, I wouldn’t be dismayed. I explained to her that a box swap didn’t necessarily need to include books, but rather other things that we love (we, as readers are multifaceted you know). After that, Miss Print got it! Without even having to ask, I knew she’s was on board.
So we chatted both on and offline and decided that we wanted to host a box swap for book bloggers.
Introducing the Giving Thanks Book Blogger Box Swap hosted by myself (The BookBandit) and Miss Print!
Any book blogger located within the United States is free to sign up (use the sign up form below). Sign ups are open for the whole month of October, from October 1st (when this post goes live) and will run until 11:59 p.m. on October 31st. Please provide as much information as you possibly can. Please make sure to fill out all required fields (any confidential information will of course remain confidential).
Obviously this is a book blogger box swap, books are more than likely expected, but please feel free to include other non-book goodies in your box. This isn’t only a chance to give and receive a great surprise, it’s also a chance to get to know others within the blogging community. And (obviously) to give thanks to such a community.
Emma (Miss Print) and I will be busy matching participants the first week of November. You should receive your match during that first week, via e-mail, no later than November 9th (ideally, we’re aiming for the 7th of November, but by November 9th at the latest).
Participants who are signing up, please be aware that there are some hard and fast guidelines. There is a fifteen dollar (1$15.00) spending limit. However, if you want to give a little more, and spend a little extra, that is completely up to you as the buyer. Also, all packages MUST BE MAILED by NOVEMBER 16th! That is a firm deadline.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to e-mail both Emma and I at: GivingThanksBoxSwap@yahoo.com
