Book exchange?

Hi ladies! Hope you're all doing well :-)

So, my friend sent me a letter for a book exchange. It works like this: On the copy she sent me there is a kid's name in spot #1 and her kid's name in spot #2. I'm supposed to send 1 book to the kid in the #1 spot, then move her kid's name to spot #1, put my kid in #2, make copies and send it to 6 friends. I guess it's a chain letter, but the idea is if everyone participates you'll get a bunch of books back.

Is anyone interested in doing this? Seems like I only have a few friends in person with kids. Plus I'd hate to send it to someone who doesn't want to participate but feels guilty for not sending me something (especially since I kind of hate these type of things myself). I'd you'd like to do it just PM me your kid's name and address.

I'm friends with someone who did this, and it wasn't a positive experience for her. She sent out a ton of things and got nothing back...

I can send V a book though!

I figured that's how it would go; that most people feel the same as me and hate these type of things. We already have a ton of books and probably don't need any more. I was only going to do it so my friend would get her books. who comes up with this stuff??
