Who Loves Getting Books in the Mail?!?

Ivey over at Durango Mom got me involved in a children's book share. It is basically like the chain letters I have tried to avoid for most of my life; however, this one seems pretty darn awesome. Basically, you send a book to the first person on the list, and (if everyone participates), your child(ren) will get 36 books in exchange! Even is there is only 50% participation, 18 new books in the mail is pretty sweet for a youngster. Especially the surprise and anticipation of not knowing which books they will be or when they will arrive. Sounds fun, right?

So, I am looking for 6 4 mamas to participate- send out one book and get a bunch in return. Easy peasy.

If you are interested, leave a comment with your email, or email me directly at: tarynoakley(at)gmail(dot)com

Hope you decide to join in!! Pin It Now!

  4. Thanks for joining in Nancy! So, the whole things with the (at)gmail(dot)com is so that automated programs don't start spamming your email.. or at least that is what I have been told and have decided to be cautious!
