Book Love

Since I now sleep in the same bed every night(just made myself seem like a hoochie, huh?- you know what I mean!), I've also started reading again every night.
I've fallen in love with it again.
I love to get lost in the pages and in someone else's story...
it's nice to get away from my own(story) for a while.
[especially right before I'm about to attempt to sleep!]
The problem with this new routine of mine is that I'm going through books almost too quickly!
You're thinking, "Why is that a problem?", right?
Well, if you've gone to the book store recently and looked at the prices than you get me.
And that's when I came up with this grand idea...

That's right! What if we SHARED books?
[I mean, surely someone else has thought of this... I just have yet to find that person. Because I would have joined my happy little booty right on in!]
I'm going to throw the idea out there and if you're interested,
leave a comment with your email address!

There will be 4 people in each Book Love group! We will be passing our books down the line, so you will always mail the book you have to the same person :) We will have about a month to read each book.

1) Choose your book. It can be one you own, one you've been wanting to read, or one you've already read a million times... whatever! If you haven't read it, don't! It's not your turn yet!
2) Mail your book off to your designated book buddy & keep an eye out for your first book to pop up in your mailbox or door step!
3) Read the book! Leave markings throughout if you feel the urge! This is what I call "Showing a book some love... hence, The Book Love Club! So I encourage markings, of course :) You know, highlighting something really beautiful or poignant in the story, or a personal story on a little post it hidden somewhere in the pages. Fun stuff.
4) At the end of the month, mail that book to your book buddy & wait for your next book to come rolling in!
5) Repeat, repeat, repeat!
6) Your book will find it's way back to you at the start of the 4th month & inside you will have 3 other peoples lovely thoughts and feelings tucked away in the pages.

Fun, right? It could be interesting! & It will open us all up to books we may not normally choose!

So how about it? Who's with me?
