Books for your LO's

A girl from my previous pregnancy board contacted me about this and I joined in.

I still have 4 more spots if anyone is interested. THis was my message on facebook to some friends;

"Hi Ladies!
I'm looking for 6 mommy friends that might be interested in doing a book exchange.
If you are interested, I would send you a letter with two children's names on it and a blank letter.
You then send a book to the child on the first slot.
Then make copies of the letter, moving the child in the second spot into the first slot and putting your child's name in the second spot. Make six copies of that and six copies of the blank and send it to 6 other mommies/kids.

In the end you should have sent out one book and recieve 36 back.

Let me know by Wednesday if you are interested. I think its a fun thing for them and I know Reed LOVES getting mail and LOVES books ;)"

It does sound like a fun idea, as my kids do like mail... although I'm ultra picky about books for my kids... yeah, I'm a book snob! Also, we have a thrift store up the road that has kid's books for 5 or 10 cents a piece. You can't beat that! The shipping cost for all those books - yikes!!

You actually only send one out, but if you get 6 people and they get 6 people, etc you should in theory get 36 in return.

That's an awesome deal on books! I'm a bit of a book snob as well Wink
