Do you like to read?

I LOVE to read!  I think that the love of reading is something that is passed down.  My parents have always been readers and we, my sisters and I, were brought up going to the library and sharing books.  When I became a mother, it was only natural for me to read to my children.  They both loved to be read to.  My daughter is now 31 and she has a voracious appetite for books!  She will read anything, and I do mean anything.  When she was in middle school she ran out of books so picked up the encyclopedia and began to read those.  (I know that I am dating myself by admitting that we had encyclopedias in our home, not just on line)  Our son loved, loved, loved to be read to and that continued until he was in middle school.  He still likes to read, though admittedly not nearly as much as Michelle or myself.  It tickles me to no end to see how my darling grandaughter has grown up with such a love of reading too.  She if a very good reader and her vocabulary and comprehension level prove that.

Naturally, when I saw this month's Chaotic Goddess Swap was titled Books 'n Bloggers, I knew it was something that I would want to sign up for.  The idea of the swap is to help introduce bloggers to one another and to allow members to receive a special something in the mail.  Who doesn't like to get a package of fun in the mail!?  The rules of the swap are pretty simple, all you have to do is create a package that includes 1 of each of the following:
                          * A book that you have read and loved
                          * A book you haven't read
                          * A book from your partner's wish list

Additional rules are as follows:

•Packages must contain 3 books that fit the criteria.

•Send books that fit your partner's genre preferences.

•Books must be mailed First Class or better, no Media Mail, on June 28th or 29th.

•You must respond to emails from the swap hosts within a timely fashion.

Pretty simple, right?  Do you think that this sounds like something that you would like to do?  Sign up is easy, just go to: Chaotic Goddess Swap Sign Up and get yourself signed up!  You won't regret it!

  1. An apetite for books is the sign of a cultured mind and adventurous heart! I'm so glad the tradition/trait is continuing in your family. :)
    And thanks for joining us for the swap!
