A Cookbook Swap and New-to-Me Bloggers

Throughout the year I participate in events that span the blogosphere. It might be for a cause, such as the Cookies for Kids Cookie Swap I do around the holidays; it might just be for fun, such as a Pepper Party.

Food Blogger Prop Swap

But I stumbled on this event - the Food Blogger Cookbook Swap cohosted by Alyssa of Everyday Maven and Faith of An Edible Mosaic - and signed up immediately. Geniuses both, I tell you.I can not wait to participate!

If you are anything like I am, you probably have enough cookbooks to build the Great Wall of China. Okay, maybe not quite that many. But I used to pick up cookbooks anytime I went to a bookstore. Sadly, almost all of our local bookstores have disappeared; but there's always amazon. I have purchased cookbooks for single dinner parties. I have cookbooks that I have reviewed for publishers. I have received cookbooks as gifts. Some I use once; some I - blush, blush - have never used and probably will never use.

So, I am tickled that I get to package up a cookbook and swap it with another foodie blogger. Another great thing about this: I get to meet some new-to-me bloggers. Rose at Avocado Bravado; Hannah at Blue Kale Road; Cucina Kristina; Kitchen Treaty; and Kellie at the Suburban Soapbox - nice to meet you! And it's always nice to see some old friends: Heather at girlichef; Carrie at Poet in the Pantry; Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious; and more. It's always a pleasure to be part of projects with you all.

If you want to join the fun, click for more information here. The sign-up deadline is this week. You still have time!

Now I just need to wait for my assignment, peruse the blog, and pick a good book from my shelf.
