LTPB Exchange



Let's Talk Picture Books Exchange (#LTPBExchange) is a quarterly series of one-on-one picture book swaps on Instagram. It offers participants the opportunity to join a global picture book community and share children's books from around the world. So far we've had over 300 different people from 30 unique countries swap picture books, and we'd love to have you join us. Here's how to participate:
  1. Follow @LTPBExchange on Instagram and comment on the most recent open post to say you'd like to participate. The open post is only up for one week, so you have 7 days to sign up before I take the post down and close sign-ups. Include your home country if you would prefer to ship domestically
  2. I'll randomly pair up everyone who leaves a comment and DM you and your partner a week from the open date
  3. DM your partner your physical mailing addresses in a new message
  4. Choose a book(s) under $15 US and published within the last two years (to keep things fresh!), and mail it by the exchange date. Feel free to chat about what types of books you'd like to exchange!
  5. Tag your book with #LTPBExchange when you post about it so I can share it later on the account!
That's it! I hope you'll join us in the largest children's book exchange on Instagram. Start by following @LTPBExchange, and be sure to check the account description for when the next exchange will open. I look forward to connecting with you!

Nervous about shipping to another country? I recommend using Book Depository, which ships to almost every country worldwide free of charge.
