The Great APA-IL Book Swap!

The Great APA-IL Book Swap

Open to All! Submit your interest by January 20, 2023

Do you enjoy curling up with a good planning book on a cold winter day? Maybe you just like standing back and admiring your collection of planning books on the shelf. Let's kick-off the new year with some good reads.

The APA-IL Membership Committee is organizing a book swap using the platform called Elfster. Here's how you can be part of the swap:

  1. Sign up for the swap HERE.

  2. Fill out the RSVP form (only your match will receive your personal information) by January 20.

  3. On the next page, you'll be asked for a "wish list". Please use the "write in a wish" option to give your Santa some ideas about what you like.

  4. Once you receive your match, look for a gently used book about a planning or related topic. It could be one your currently own or one is purchased second hand. This is about the gifting of books, not the spending of money.

  5. Send your match their book by February 3rd.

  6. Share the book you've received by using the hashtag #nolittlebooks and tag @APAIL

Notes from Phil

  • Remember, this is about the gifting of books, not the spending of money.

  • It is not mandatory that swappers use wish list ideas or suggestions. You may give a book that you are passionate about.

  • Shipping a book for the first time? Remember to ask for the Media Mail or book rate at the Post Office.

  • Questions? Please email

How Elfster Works

An Elfster exchange is a gifting game where participants anonymously give and receive gifts. After the sign-up deadline, names will be randomly drawn and you'll find out who you'll be giving a gift to on your group's exchange date.
