{poprocks} book swap <3



*bOOk SwaP*

ever since micaela's lovely ornament swap, i have been dying to have one.
i love the idea of connecting on such a personal level with everyone out there in blog world.
i wanted to do something that would reflect me.
i wanted to swap something that could reveal a little something about you!

so here it is. the first of many {poprocks} book swaps.
pick your favorite or one that brings meaning to your life.
(in the hopes that it will do the same in someone else's)
it could be new, old, funny, serious.
i want it to represent you!
to make it even more special,
i want you to inscribe a lovely little note on the inside cover.

i don't know about you.
but there is not much i love about winter.
one thing that always stands out.
is sitting all cozy on the couch with a good book.
so what better time to start this than the coldest of months
(for us new yorkers anyway)
and if you're lucky enough to have the sun shining on your face,
maybe it could be a good read for the beach!

i am beyond excited about this swap.
even better. we'll do it again next month.
where you will get the chance to re-swap the same book you were given,
or send another piece of yourself out into the world.

i just LOVE reading.
i am always looking for new ideas.
and i really LOVE collecting books for my book shelf
(altho mine still have been packed away since the move *tear*)

i hope you all are just as excited as i am for this.
 email me @
by january 20th to be a part.
{be sure to include your name, mailing address, & blog address in your email}

bonus: for every beautiful lady that joins the swap,
i will be donating a book to our local children's shelter.
you may even send one to me yourself that you would like to donate!
