Blog This Book

Update: All three books have been taken! Thanks for playing!
Gaile had a great idea about passing along books you no longer want/need, and this is how Blog This Book was born. The idea, I believe, is you post some books you want to unleash, interested parties leave comments and titles of books they have to swap in return, and voila, new reading for all! Here is what I have to offer today:
BOOK tt wife.gif
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Most people adored this book, but I was not among them.
BOOK bee.gif
Bee Season by Myla Goldberg. Pretty entertaining, good voice, I can’t say more without giving too much away.
BOOK whiteteeth.gif
White Teeth by Zadie Smith. I thought I was going to really like this book, but I just couldn’t get into it, for some reason. Maybe I am too old.
So, if you are interested in any of these books, leave a comment! If you have books you’d like to swap in exchange for any of these titles, please let me know; otherwise, I’m happy to just pass along the books for nuttin’ in return. Also check out Gaile’s site for more offers.

    I would love the Time Traveler’s Wife. I’ve just pared down my book collection, though. I’m in the Bay Area so if you can think of something I can send you from up here, I’ll grab something else for the trade.

    What a great idea. I have to go look at my night stand…

    What an awesome blog.
    I just found this blog and saw the cool book swap idea. I know that I’m unknown by you, but I would like Bee Season, sounds interesting.
    I’ll look at what I have at home, but since I’m only 18, I’ll probably have books I had to read back in HS. 🙁

    i’m only 25- but i totally could not get into white teeth. i started it three times and each time put it down in blahlfjdsa within a week. i gave up, finally, and gave it back to the boy.

    all three = high quality, well-written literature.
    so hopefully you get some good offers in return dork.

    I’m with you on Time Traveler’s Wife. I just couldn’t get into it. I know it’s all the rage in book clubs right now, but it just fizzled and died for me.

    Ooooh. White Teeth is one of my all time faves – but I had borrowed it from someone so I don’t have a copy of my own!
    I’d loooove to trade for that sucker! What kind of books are you into? I can look thru my bookcases to see if I have anything that would interest you…. I live in CT, so also let me know if there are any regional candies/tasty treats you’d like to get your hands on! 😉

    blog this book sounds like an excellent idea. i will have to go through my books at home and see if i can offer some up.

    Love the idea, I’ve seen similar bookswaps at other websites. What I haven’t seen is music CD swaps. I’d swap lots of different and different types of CD’s for books or other items.
