Book Swap

This month I participated in a book swap over with Heather at Blonde…..Undercover Blonde.  I was paired up with someone I didn’t know and given a $15 limit for a book and had to send the book by 1/20.  It has been SO much fun to be paired up with my partner, Becca, and shop for the perfect book for her (If you’ve never been to her blog, you really *must*; she is awesome!)

Based on some of the books that Becca told me were her favorites, I selected a memoir that I read in the spring of 2010 (I read a review of it in People while getting a pedicure so I ordered it right there- thank goodness for smart phones.)  I sent Becca Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman.  I reviewed the book here, but in short, this woman’s story provides a lot of insight on our judicial system, prison life, and Martha Stewart (weird combination right? lol)  Anyways if you have not read this book, I highly recommend it!  I hope Becca likes it too. orangeisthenewblack325
I am extra lucky, because Becca spoiled me!  She sent me TWO books!  Obviously I have not read them yet, because I just received them, but I’m definitely looking forward to diving into these:
Thank you so much for spoiling me Becca!!!!  Seriously, y’all, go check out her blog!
Have any of you read these books?
What are you currently reading that you would recommend to Becca and me?

What a great idea!! Orange is the new black sounds like such a great read. I read Escape and loved it. Such an interesting story.
