Friendly Little Book Exchange

How cute is this?

What a great idea. A friendly little neighborhood book exchange. I have a list of e-books yet to read but, how could I resist this home's invitation? Plus, I couldn't help wondering what my neighbors have read.

Murder Mysteries, books on gardening, sailing, and sprinkled in a few books for kids. Angela's Ashes, by Frank McCourt, called out, "Read me again, you loved me the first time." True, I did.

Instead, I chose, Tough Cookie, by Diane Mott Davidson. It was time for something new. Murder Mysteries are a genre I typically do not read. Correction, I never read. But then, I typically do not pull books out of cute little houses. How horrific could a cookie murder be? What the heck.

Have you ever come across one of these book exchanges? For more information and to start a book exchange check out:

  1. What a great idea! I think there's one in the next town over from where I live, but I haven't used it yet. The one pictured here is cuter than the one I've seen...but maybe I shouldn't judge the book exchange by its cover? ;)
