This is the second reading log swap of 2013! It's pretty simple. Read. Write about what you read. Send your log off to two international partners.

You'll be sending your partners one reading log that contains your thoughts on all the books you read during the months of April, May and June of 2013. The log can be in any paper format.

You need to jot down the title, the author and give a minimum of a one paragraph description about each book and your thoughts.

Feel free to include things like favorite quotes, the author's Web site, etc.

This swap is about what you enjoy reading, not what your partners may or may not like. It doesn't matter what you read: fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, Manga, zines, audio books, e-books, children's, etc.

I recommend keeping a computer file for your log so it will be easy for your partners to read and so you won't lose it, but your log can be created in ANY format you like. It needs to be paper and mailed via post. The format is up to you: journal, letter, zine, tag book, etc.

The details:

a) international (sent via the post, NOT e-mailed)

b) two partners

c) minimum requirements: one book each month; one paragraph per book. Author, title, description/thoughts etc.

Voracious readers read more than a single book a month. So there's no maximum. Your reading log should be sent NO earlier than the 15th of June.

The fine print:

Newbies welcome. Rated players need a 4.8 or higher. If you are under the requirement PM me and I will take it as a case by case. All participants must have a completed profile. I ban after the swap closes. As both a swap participant and coordinator, I like people to have positive swap experiences, so please no forum drama.

Hopefully we won't need to, but I will arrange for angels if they are needed.

YAY! Joined Swap-Bot in Feb and saw this and was bummed I couldn't join in. Glad to join in now.

Heads up to the people I get, there will be no one book a month here ~ closer to 15 (a month). Hope you won't mind! :)

This is always a good swap. I have my first quarter log printed out and ready to mail... had to get a bigger envelope to fit it in :)

Oh man, super excited about this! I have a few books on back order at the library, and I usually end up snapping up interesting returns that show up in the return bin. I know I'm a newbie, but I do hope I can take part. I love booksharing. =)

Hi Av0! Welcome to the swap! It is newbie friendly and your profile looks good. Have fun on Swap-bot!

It is really a good idea if you have a computer use it. Not that I don't enjoy reading handwriting, but my first log got lost in the mail (it still happens a lot) and she had to write the log all over again. I wouldn't be too happy if I had to do it over as I read a lot!

Almost to the end of the 2nd Quarter. I'll be sending out a reminder e-mail when we are a little closer to the send by date. That e-mail will also have a link to the new 3rd quarter swap included.

But I know some like to get into the swap earlier so here is a link as well. 3rd Quarter Reading Log Swap 2013

Hopefully everyone will send out, but if they don't, I'm glad to help angel if you need some angels.
