<p>I hope this is OK to post in here, I'm sorry if it's not I can take it down!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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!</p>
<p>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 3 more people. This is the way it works</p>
<p><br>
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 pa<span class="text_exposed_show">rticipate. 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.</span><br><br>
Anyone interested???</p>

<p>Does the letter have a way of listing your child's age or special requests (ie board-books)? I am probably interested if I can be specific about board-books, as DS is 18 months.</p>

<p>Hi!</p>
<p>Yes you put your child's age in with their name :) I'm sure you could write your preference there as well!</p>
<p>I'm planning to put "used books ok" next to my child's name so I'd imagine listing a preference would work. :)</p>
<p>I've still not had any interest from my friends on facebook which is crazy, I thought more people would be excited about free books lol.</p>
