Based on the reaction to Tuesday’s post, I’m thinking I’m onto something. I hate to see good books languish on a bookshelf when others could use them, so let’s make this idea a reality!
Simply leave a comment on this post with the writing-related book(s) you no longer use and would be willing to trade for someone else’s book(s).
I’ll create a master list on this post and then we’ll figure out who wants what, and then each person can mail out their unwanted books to who wants them, and wait by their mailboxes to receive the ones they wanted.
Let’s make it easy using a one in, one out system. As in, if you put a book in you get to pick a book. We’ll deal with multiple people wanting the same book if it happens.
Here’s what’s up for trade so far. And now, I’m adding another section after this list to focus on what other writers are looking for, and want to trade you to get!

What other writers are looking for…
1. Sheri Degrom is looking for the following…reference info for the era 1910-1940. I’m looking for rural development (think the great plains states), fashion, cooking, daily living, modes of transportation for both city and rural – the affects of coming out of WWI and gearing up for WWII. I’d like to do even trades. Also – anything to do with ordinary daily life proceeding 1924 and about 10 years after. Contact Sheri directly at sdegrom (at) conwaycorp (dot) net
