Host A Summer Book Swap!

Do you have trouble parting with your old books? My neighbor and I came up with a fun way to clear your bookshelves and a great excuse to have a party! We hosted a Summer Book Swap!

We invited 25 of our friends and asked them to bring some of their favorite adult and children’s books to swap. We scheduled our party for a weekday evening and made appetizers and a YUMMY frozen mint limeade to serve.

As our guest arrived, we arranged the books into categories: mommy beach reads, history, young girls’ fiction, children’s classics and so on. We had a great time recommending books to each other. It felt great to give some of my favorites away to friends and their children. We donated all of the unclaimed books to a local charity. It was a huge success!
