Book Exchange!

I'm super excited about this.
I used to love doing chain letters when I was little and this is just like that...only better! 

You send one children's book out and in return will get 36!
I need 6 people to participate in order for this to happen.

If you have kids or you plan on having them one day in the future, this is genius. 
Matt and I have been buying a new book every Sunday.
I want our children to grow up with an abundance of books. We want them to have huge imaginations (maybe they'll be Imagineers one day so reading a ton would never hurt that) ; )
When I was little I always had a hard time with having a good imagination. I only ever played "business". Isn't that sad?

I read all the time. I loved reading. I remember my mom reading to us. I beat my whole 5th grade class in reading the most books in one year and passing every quiz for "Battle of the Books"...(I won a trophy). I'm not sure why I had a hard time playing pretend, but I want our kids to be kids for as long as they can. I hope they grow up to be like Matt, a real kid at heart. Not like me who has a hard time being silly (unless I'm with kids). The only time I ever feel silly is with kids :) Maybe that's why I can't wait to have them. I mean, sure I can be silly sometimes with Matt, but he definitely always starts it. 

So anyways.....who's going to do this book exchange with me?! 
First 6 are in! Email me and I'll give you all the details. :) I'm so excited about this!


  1. I tried doing this before but never got any books back! Still -- I'd love to try again! I have a 7 month old and he already has his own library!
