Secret Cupid: The Swap!


It's time for the first swap of the new year here at Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile! What better day to dedicate it to than a day of love? After all, we all do love books!

If this is your first time participating in a swap, make sure to check out the General Guidelines.

Otherwise, let's get right to it.

This swap is all about our love of books and of course sending general good vibes to someone else! We all love getting a little something now and then, so why not spread that squishy feeling to others?

This is going to be a quick swap, meaning a low limit and only one required item.

To participate, include the following in your package:
* A cupid themed book!
-- Romance, swoon-worthy boys, anything you think fits the package.
* A warm and fuzzy note to your swap partner.

Money Limit: Your package must consist of items that cost at least $8, before shipping.  Anything beyond that is totally up to you. As always, you are welcome to add items not on the list!

General Helpful Hints:

Check out dollar stores. 
Shop the dollar spot at local stores like Target or Walmart.
Go thrift store hunting.
-- Just make sure the item is in good condition. (Think, "Would I want to receive this?")
Re-gift something of yours (in good condition) that you think fits the box.
Make something.
-- It's cool to include something handmade. Again, just make sure it's something you'd like to receive yourself.

Shipping Information:
This swap is open to residents in the U.S., or those who have a U.S. mailing address. All delivery confirmation numbers must be in no later than February 9, 2013. This also means your box should be shipped no later than this date. You must procure a delivery confirmation number when sending your package and place it in the provided form. Failure to do so will result in you being excluded from future swaps.


Fill out this form to get started. 

All swap entries must be in no later than January 20, 2013. 

You will then receive an email with your swap partner's information.
 Once again, don't forget to read the general guidelines, and have fun!
