I hope this is OK to post in here, I'm sorry if it's not I can take it down!
I've been trying to organize a book swap for about a week now on my facebook with absolutely no interest from my friends - it's driving me nuts!
I've already signed up and sent my book so the little girl who was ahead of me is waiting on her books and I still need to round up 2 more people. This is the way it works
You buy 1 book and your child will get 36 books in return. A mom came up with it and its all on the honor system but what happens is I will mail you 2 letters with directions, one will be blank and the other will have the name/address/age of 2 children. You mail a book to child #1. Make 12 copies of the blank letter and get 6 friends who also want to participate. Move child #2 into slot #1 then put your child in slot #2. Mail the letter with the new info along with a blank one to the 6 people who also wanted to do it.

I'm not surprised you're getting no interest. I hate these pyramid schemes and never participate. For us, they usually involve stickers, but I would be even less inclined to participate in a book scheme. My family loves to go to bookstores and find books that appeal to each of us, so the though of a randomly sent book from a stranger really doesn't go over. Sorry.
If it was a swap meet, where everyone met and could exchange books they didn't want anymore, I would definitely be interested.
