It's no secret that I love to read. So, let's do a book swap!

Here are the details.

It’s Easy & Fun to Participate
Want to join in on the fun? It’s easy: just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and you'll be matched to another book lover.
Then, pick out a book—-$15 or under—-and mail it to your book recipient.
If you chose to send a used book, please make sure it's in really good condition.
Remember, what goes around comes around!
A few weeks later, you’ll receive a book of your very own.

How Much?
Please don't spend any more than $15.

Uniquely Me (a poem by Alex Graham James)

I am
a confusion of cultures.
Uniquely me.
I think this is good
because I can
the traveller, sojourner, foreigner,
the homesickness
that comes.
I think this is also bad
because I cannot
be understood
by the person who has sown and grown in the same place.
They know not
the real meaning of homesickness
that hits me
now and then.
Sometimes I despair of
understanding them.
I am
an island
a United Nations.
Who can recognize either in me
but God?

by Alex Graham James
