Follow the link in the first post over to the Games forum.

Each book swap has different rules, the first post of the thread spells them out.

I recently did my first swap and it was lots of fun!  It was an elephant swap.  Once signups are closed, the host posts a play list.  Play proceeds from the top to the bottom.  First person picks someone else at random to reveal their book.  The second person on the list can then choose to steal the first person's book or ask someone else to reveal their book.  If your book gets stolen, you immediately get another turn and can steal someone else's book or ask a new person to reveal.

It's great fun, great way to meet new people and chat.  I've been looking for another swap to join but haven't found anything that suits me yet.  I'll have to check this one out although I'm not sure I have any books on someone else's wishlist.

Do you have time to read the books? Or is the idea to get rid of a popular book you've read already and get one you haven't?

This swap is for any romance book that has 5 or more people on the Paperback Swap WishList, publish 2005-2007. It can be one you've already read, and just have lying around it can be one on  your TBR (to be read) pile, or one you order to send at the close of the game.... After the game play has finished you have a week to read and send the book to the winner... most games take a few weeks to play, so if you know early on which book you're using, you can easily have it read before the game finishes.

 

Don't worry about being usnure of how to play... we were all new to the games once, and any mistake you may make has been done a hundred times before, and any question you may have we've all had at one time.... the games are really fun and addictive (not to mention a great group af gals and guys that have fun chit-chatting about books, family, etc.)
