Join the Outlander Book Club for a Summer Book & Memento Swap!



Let's start off the summer with a fun and exciting book swap. The memento can be a favorite summer poem, postcard, recipe, or another memento related to summertime.

If you are interested in exchanging a summer read and memento, please contact Lady Jayne by June 22 and include

1) A list of three to five of your favorite books/authors

2) Any author or genre you do not read

3) Your mailing address.

:flower: The book does not need to be brand new and can be gently worn. :flower:

There are plenty of interesting summer reads to go around. What a great way to help others achieve their Book Challenges by picking an exotic location or a foreign novel translated into English. :)

Members who are participating in the Summer Exchange should have received a private message with the name and address of the person to whom they will be sending a summer read & memento.

Please send out the summer read by the end of July and post information about the book you receive here. Have fun! :flower:

My book and goodies from Pauline were waiting for me when I got back from my long week-end get-away :) Thanks Pauline!!


I'll start reading What the Waves Know, by Tamara Valentine as soon as I finish one of the books I'm in the middle of. I love the shells, so summery, and the candle smells delicious!

What a wonderful surprise to find a package from Motherofprayer on my doorstep this morning! Here is a picture of what I received.



I am looking forward to reading both -- The Gilded Hour by Sara Donati and The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen -- and to coloring the lovely notecards. Many thanks, Motherofprayer. :flower:
