Swapping Theme For September "Friendships"

Hello Everyone,

Can you believe summer is almost over? Its only 9 more days till we begin Sept swap month. I am excited, are you?

Now since it is "Back to School" month in September I thought a good theme for our BABEs would be "Friendship" in otherwords, any book about friends, fiction or non fiction. That could be a mystery or true life story, a literature, history, informational, anything that your partner might enjoy to read about that has to do with friends or friendship...There are lots of books out there written about this theme and with everyone going back to school reuniting their friendships and making new ones I thought it would be appropriate.

So put on those thinking caps, update your Amazon "Wish Lists" and BABEs "Wish List" so that your partner knows what you might like. Please be sure to list a link to your Amazon wish list and email it to me with your BABEs "Wish Lists" too so that I can add it to the Wish List page link to the right.

I hope everyone has rested up and is ready to jump back in to swap.

  • Remember I need "Angels" for those packages that don't arrive. [If you can be one please email DaBookLady]
  • Read the rules again as they have changed a little
  • Let me know if you are not going to Swap in Sept.
  • Update those "Wish Lists" ladies
  • Be sure to list your "Amazon Wish List" name

Please remember that the purpose of swapping books with each other is to learn about new authors and share books that we may have read or want to read, because you might just be pleasently surprised and find a terrific read!!!!
