A few years ago, a new Twitter friend sent me a used copy of Lonesome Dove, which sat on my bookshelf until this Christmas when I finally picked it up. About halfway though, I realized that I never would have read this book if someone hadn’t sent it to me. What else should I be reading that I don’t know about? Let’s find out!
I think it would be cool to set up a book exchange with a bunch of strangers kind of like a Secret Santa. You would be assigned a person to send a used book that you think everyone should read (nothing obvious that we all probably read in high school, like To Kill a Mockingbird). Then a different person would send you a book that he or she thinks should be read.
The exchange doesn’t have to be limited to this blog — let’s open it up to friends from Twitter, Facebook, or wherever. The more people who participate, the more books we get to discover when we share what we received.
Is anyone interested in doing this? If so, please let me know in the comments. If not, just fake it because how hard is it to send out a damn book!
