Wouldn’t it be nice to spend some time this Advent with a new book? We all need the humanizing influence of stories in our lives, and we at SDMW would like to host a book exchange.
The rules are simple. I will collect the names and addresses of all participants. With the help of my husband’s spreadsheet skills, I will randomly pair each participant with a recipient to whom to send a book. Adding a little note about why you like the book would be a nice extra touch. Everyone will send one title and receive one title.
The book should be:
· One you enjoy and want to share with a fellow-Lutheran woman
· Story-driven (i.e., novel, memoir, non-fiction narrative)
· Either new or used, but in good reading condition
· Reasonably cheerful (avoid anything excessively disturbing. The overall message should be hopeful even if the characters experience suffering and tragedy)
It’s sort of like a secret Santa Christmas exchange, except that it’s not secret, affiliated with St. Nick, or for Christmas. Ahem.
Anyway, are you in? It will be fun!
Send me your name and mailing address by Thursday, December 1st (sister-daughter-mother-wife (at) googlegroups.com).
I will reply with your recipient’s info within a few days, and you should mail a book no later than Thursday, December 15.
