for today's homemade christmas post, i'd like to share an activity/ gift idea. as many of you know, i love reading, and i love sharing the things i read with other people. a book exchange combines those two things! grab a copy of one of your favorite reads, wrap it up, and invite a dozen friends to do the same. it's a win-win situation. you get to share a book with someone else, and you walk away with something new. you can even create a theme, to help narrow down your options. ask guests to bring a snack to share, and you're good to go. the best part is, it's free.
what book(s) would you bring?
p.s. i love that so many of the classics are getting a fresh face. my favorite book redesign is the fitzgerald collecton by coralie bickford-smith. doesn't it just scream fitzgerald? (she also designed the cover of dickens' a christmas carol, pictured above). wouldn't you love to read a book that pretty?
