Join the Outlander Book Club for a Summer Book Swap!

If you are interested in exchanging a favorite book with an OBC member, please contact me via private message by May 27

Please include the following information in your message:

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

2) If there is a particular author or genre you do not care for

3) Your mailing address. 

 The book does not need to be brand new and can be gently worn. Select a great
read based on the interests of the reader you are paired with for the swap.

This year's Summer Book Swap is smaller than in year's past. I will contact participants this weekend with their information. 

Have fun and post pictures on this thread!

Thank you ShelledinAmber for starting my summer reading season off with a delightful book.  I've read Jill Mansell in the past and love her humor and haven't read this one so this was a good pick.  Thank you!

Pauline, I'm so glad you like the author and haven't read that one yet!

Thank you for my two (!) books also- I have read and enjoyed Cecelia Ahern before (but not this particular novel) and look forward to reading both of your choices!

(My two year old got a hold of your card when he was supposed to be signing Daddy's father's day card 🤦 so that's where the little extra design came from! )

20180620_103450.jpg Dear Lady Jayne...Two books...how spoiled am I? Thank you so very much for cheering up a slightly grim day...not any longer!
I read and enjoyed 'To the Bright Edge of the World' and look forward to 'The Snow Child' and 'Euphoria' looks fascinating, especially as I have connections with that part of the Pacific  and visited PNG when I was a teenager. Love the bookmark and you have the most beautiful handwriting. This lovely package just made my day. Heather

IMG_9960.JPG Heather, I was happy to brighten your day! I hope you enjoy the books. The bookmark was handmade by me at a craft workshop at my library.

As it happens, I received your package today, too. I can't wait to read Seven Little Australians, which sounds delightful. As you mentioned, it has withstood the test of time - 124 years, to be exact! Thank you also for the bookmark and postcard of Burleigh Heads in Queensland. The quote on the bookmark is one of my favorites -- "Book lovers never go to bed alone." : D
