Anita Pomerantz | 6249 comments The Swap will start! Just a quick recap of the rules.

Note that the administrators reserve the right to take your turn on your behalf if they deem it necessary to keep the game going. We will try hard NOT to do that . . .

Here's how the swap will work.

The first person will select a number from a list of numbers that I provide. Each number is affiliated with a book title. I, then, announce which book the first person has opened.

The second person can either steal the open title from the first person. Or, they may pick a new number and open a new book. If they steal the first person's title, then the first person has the opportunity to select a new number.

The third person may then steal either one of the open titles, or select a new number to open.

We continue ad infinitum until all the books are opened and distributed.

Note, you may not steal a book back immediately that has just been stolen from you.

Each person may possess a given title no more than three times total.

One title will come with a $25 Amazon gift certificate provided by PBT. At the end of the swap, we will announce which title includes the gift certificate.

You must check the status of the swap every 24 hours or assign a proxy person to do so for you so that if it is your turn, you take it in a timely fashion.

Book should be shipped within one week of the close of the swap. Personal contact information must be exchanged between the two parties involved - - privately - - in order to complete the shipping of the books. Not shipping your book is grounds for being removed as a PBT member (holy smokes I seriously hope I never actually have to implement that!).

I'm always laughing at our book swaps here because the people rarely steal. I've done these in person, and oh my gosh, you can't hold onto your item for more than like two turns . . .

Amy | 8145 comments How fun! I wouldn't have necessarily gone for that, but I'm not unpleased. Non-fiction takes me a lot of concentrated time, and is more work than escape, but I am always glad I've read a good one, on a worthy topic when I'm through. We'll see what happens and what sticks!

Best to all, Amy
