2010 Read in Color Holiday Book Exchange!

As usual, the holidays seem to be fast approaching (hooray for school holiday breaks!) and I didn't quite notice until I saw all the holiday book swaps popping up (I've signed up for two so far and I need to stop, haha). Anyway, it's time to announce the

READ IN COLOR Holiday Book Exchange!

I wish I had a button :( I can't offer any money if you make me a button, but I would be so appreciative (and I may throw in a book....)

The Who: International entries welcomed :)

The What: A swap open to anyone, no need to be a book blogger. The idea is to try and send the books out before Christmas, that way even if you don't celebrate Christmas, your books will arrive close to a winter holiday date. I encourage everyone to get creative. Along with a book (I recommend sending two books if you can, but I 100% understand if you can't), perhaps send along a holiday card or some bookmarks. Have fun with it =) You can choose to remain anonymous until the person who received the book creates a post (and you must create a post once you receive your book, or at least mention it in some kind of New Crayons/In my Mailbox, etc.) and then comment with your name or you can include your name.

The When: Sign up by November 20th. Mail the book(s) out by December 11th.

The Why: It's important to keep the holidays colorful, I want to see more books by authors of color being bought as gifts.

The How: Fill out THIS FORM

Keep a close eye on the blog because I will start posting suggestion lists along with my favorite books 0f 2010 (although my favorites list won't publish until January 1st).
