I’ve been toying with the idea of organizing an All Hallow’s Read book exchange again this year. For those unfamiliar with the concept, I’ll let Neil Gaiman explain it. If you can’t be bothered to watch the video, I’ll boil it down for you: books!
I organized an All Hallow’s Read book swap a couple of years ago and it was a lot of fun. Basically the way it works (at least the way I do it) involves a circular system where person A sends a book to person B, B sends a book to C and so on through as many people are involved, until the circle is closed. Everyone gets a book and everyone sends a book. It’s lovely!
It doesn’t have to be a new book. It can be a much-loved book you want to pass along to someone else. It can be an ebook for those who are into those sorts of things. Heck, if you’re an author, it can be your own book. Despite the original “rules” of All Hallow’s Read, since not everyone is into horror, it doesn’t have to be a scary book; it can be any kind of book you want. As I said, basically, the idea is books!
So, who’s in? If you’re interested, drop me a note in the comments, or send me an email. It’ll be fun, I promise. Did I mention books?
