Monday's Mail Memo - April Book Swap

This is the fourth month in the book swap my sister Brenda and I are doing this year. So far, we've both been keeping up with the reading, however we're taking the month of May off as neither of us has finished our April books.

April Books from Brenda Paige & Laurie

This month I didn't receive a package for our monthly book swap. My twin 12-year-old nieces wanted to get in on the swap, so they each shared one of their books with me when we stopped by at the end of our vacation earlier this month. I've just finished The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop, a FUN and magical book that Paige really likes, and I'll be starting Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company from Laurie very soon!

April Book to Brenda

When I reviewed The Sleepwalker HERE, Brenda commented that it sounded especially interesting, so I sent that for her to read this month. Of course, I made a bookmark to go along with it.

I added several others items to the her package: two of the books she'd sent to me previously; some leftover candy canes I thought the girls would enjoy; my worn Play t-shirt (just in case she gets inspired to turn it into a wall hanging); a coloring page, and...

a 12x12 vision board for her word BALANCE.

Waving hello to all the Mondayers joining in with Sian this year as we share memos and mail on Monday!


  1. It's good that the next generation is involved with the book exchange. That sounds like a fun package to send in return. That's a perfect vision board for Brenda's word. Happy week ahead.

  2. Great exchanges, and lots of fun that it includes two generations!

  3. I love that the girls were in on the swap!'ve got me imagining a book swap with Little E now: I wonder how that would go?

    Wishing you a week of FUN ahead

  4. I like the idea of the book swap with your nieces, the Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop looks fun. We read Rocket Boys here and liked it, so Crater Trueblood will be looked at too.

  5. Love the package you've sent yo your she loves it! Xx


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
