Paperback Swap Coincidence

I was printing out the address to send someone two books that were requested through Paperback Swap. When I looked at the address I was confused. It appeared to be printing my address in the mail to section but on closer inspection I found this not to be the case. The requester has the same first name as me but spelled differently. And not only does she live in my city but, this is the strange part, she lives on the same street! When I emailed her to offer to drop off the books in person I find out she is a homeschooler too. I tell ya, some days just weird me out.

A few months ago, I got a request for a book I'd listed at Paperback Swap. When I printed the label, it was addressed to my best friend who lives less than 2 miles from me! So weird!

Oh my goodness! What are the odds of this happening? I've never used PBS...something I need to try!

That's so creepy!

When I was a sophomore in college, I took a class on journalism. On the first day, we had to go around describing where we lived. It turned out, the girl next to me lived right across the street from me, but we'd never met, because she went to a boarding school!
