The Penguins and Pigs of Christmas Book Exchange

Random Penguin and Sullivan McPig are excited to collaborate on this fun holiday book exchange! Here are the details:

You are invited to join the Penguins and Pigs of Christmas Book Exchange, organized by Kerry & Carien with help from Random Penguin and Sullivan McPig.

We thought it would be fun to spread joy and books this Christmas. So if you like books and spreading some Christmas cheer and the love of books, this exchange is the thing for you.

How it works:

This is a one on one exchange, not a pyramid scheme promising that when you send one book you might get a gazillion books, and you don’t have to try to talk other people into joining. You will send one book, get one book. Each participant will get the address of one other participant and send a book to that person. No need to sell others on this exchange, unless you want them to join the fun.

If you want to participate, please send the following information to sullivanmcpig(at)
your name
your mailing address
a book wish list - please only include books that are $10 or less OR
elect to have the giver send you one of their favorite books. Beware that with this option you may already own the title you receive.
If you want to join, let us know before November 30.

Once we have a list of participants Carien will send everyone the name and address of the person you are sending a book to. (This might not be the person who is sending to you, btw) Please try to send around December 8th the latest, especially if you are sending overseas.

You can then either buy and send a book to this person yourself, or buy from bookdepository or amazon and have it shipped directly to that person. If you are assigned to someone overseas is the best option, as there will be no extra shipping costs. You can of course send a card separately in this case to add to the Christmas fun.

Once you receive your book, you can tell Carien at sullivanmcpig(at) so she can keep track who still needs to get their book. And if you want you can share on social media with #PenguinPigCBExchange.
