April BABE's Theme

April BABE's theme will be a little different. Each member will get a book for their partner having the same "first"name as their partner. In other words, if your name is "Mary" then the book for that partner would have an author with the same first name, "Mary."

The same rules apply as read below. Deadline to sign-up is April 12th and partners will be assigned by the 15th of April. Remember this is a "Round Robin" type of swap so you will be sending to one member and another member will send to you. Have Fun!!!

Michelle, Jayne, sent their packages out today and DabookLady Debb sent her package out Friday. Be sure to post when they are received...
