Hello everyone!


I have accumulated a few more credits, so if you have books in like new, gift- giving condition that you are willing to do 3 for 1, or 2 for 1, let me know! I only have a few credtis to spend, so I will need to choose carefully and will give preference to 3 for 1 deals. Our list of children has grown to near 80! Also I had one person contact me to make a donation with a book she had. If you want to make a donation, please pm me. Donations are always greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I am working with a local organization to sponsor children for Christmas, already we have 38 children, many with single mothers. Some of these children WANT books so I thought of all my paperback swap buddies. :0)

I am hoping to find 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 on new or nearly new books to give these children for Christmas. Some of the specific requests have been board books for toddlers (we have 3), books for an 8yo girl also drawing things for her, educational items for 5yo girl, and anything science for 10yo boy.

Please if you have any questions, or can offer any deals on some great books, pm me!

Thank you!

Hi Dawn,

I have two books on my shelf that the 10year old boy might enjoy. One is a science book, and the other is a book about making machines. I would be willing to offer you a 2 for 1 deal.

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps.

Good morning!

As an update, I have received numerous replies so far for the books for the older children and have ordered enough for them right now.

I still need board books if anyone has any they can offer.

Thanks everyone!

I have a great 2 for 1 deal on board books.  Simply because I only have 2 board books, lol.   The first one is "The Case of the Disappearing Scooby Snacks"  .  Brand new condition.  As the book progresses bones start disappearing,  really cute book.  If you want that one I will throw in "Fluffy Bunnies".  Great condition also.


Let me know,

April (surfergirl)

Thank you for the new offers! My mother is in town visiting for several days, so I will try to get a good look at your shelves, but it may be a few days. Please let me know if anything changes. surfergirl, I can probably find some but do not have time to sort through 300+ books right now. I will try to get to it this coming week.

Thanks again!

Victoria and Tracy,

It would help me out a lot if you could let me know which ones are in gift-giving condition. Please include children's popular titles as well, not neccessarily only board books as we have had more children added to our list.

That includes anyone else as well, if you are offering any deals on giftable books, please list the titles! Our Christmas program for needy children is up around 58 children now.

Thank you for the offers and for your help!

Thank you for the offers! Victoria, I am still thinking about some of the books you have. I am running low on credits, but still may get a couple from you. I am not sure just yet.

The books that have already arrived are excellent! I just want to thank everyone again! These children will be so excited come Christmas!

Blessings to you! Dawn
