I am just now getting back to swapping after a long break, so I want to start out nice and easy :-)

Something else I have recently gotten back into with a vengance is reading books (after a lazy period). I enjoy reading pagan material, be it fiction or non-fiction.

So for this swap I want people to create a nice little letter sized envolope containing the following:

1: A one-page letter/note to their partner with pagan book recommendations. 13 recommendations minimum (good pagan number) and make it a mix of fiction and non-fiction. If you recommend a bookseries, please let that count as only 1 recommendation. Please make this a computer letter or print your letters so you are sure your partner will be able to read it.

2: A bookmark (for all the reading that will follow ;-)). The bookmark can be handmade or storebought, just make it awesome. And try to keep it pagan - and profile related (fill out those profiles well people)

3: A small, flat and light profile surprise. This can be bookrelated as well (but does not need to be). Perhaps some tea, coffee or hot chocolate to enjoy while reading. Or a mint, toffee, or chocolate. These are just suggestion, check your partners profile for something they will enjoy (perhaps a second bookmark if they collect them, or maybe a small stone/crystal to keep it on the pagan side).

The key to this swap is keeping it nice, easy and low on postage (hence the light-weight items). But most of all make this a special envolope, something that will be nice for your partner to open :-)

Please don't rate someone down because you do not like the book recommendations they send you. If they send you 13 recommendations that are in some way pagan, then the first part of the requirement IS furfilled.

Everyone is welcome to this swap, that includes newbies :-)

Do you actually need to have read the books you suggest?

Morgaine 01/20/2013 #

Yes, otherwise it is pretty hard to recommend something ;-) These need to be books that you have read and that you think are good/awesome.

Morgaine 01/20/2013 #

And I realise now that I did write suggestions, but I meant recommendations and apologize for my mistake.

I myself would never send a recommendation for something I have not read, because if it's really bad I don't want to suggest someone else read it.

That being said, I can't actually PROVE if someone has read the book or not, so I guess it's up to each person to decide for themselves.

Hope this helps :-)

I want to participate... but I don't know if I have read 13 pagan themed books!...

@katiejean you still have almost a week before sign-up is over. So you could sit down and and make a list to see if you have enough books to join. On the fiction side anything that features witches or witchcraft in any form is a go. So it should be doable :-) Hope you can join us. If not, get started reading as I may do this swap again in the near future :-)
