If "everything" you've listed is mandatory, I think we need a letter and not a small note card unless someone writes in teeny-tiny print.

5 books recommended, 2 book marks, (one magetic) note about love of books note about where one gets books

I'm up for it but I don't write that small.

I'm interested except I can't find magnetic book markers where I live. I live in the country about 1 and a half hour away from the nearest large town. There's a used book store about 26 miles one way where I live that sells normal book markers or I can hand make a nice quality one.. but I can't do the magnetic ones :/

Can the 'regular' one be handmade?

@junemoon It is actually 8 book recommendation,8 titles and authors could be on one side,and you have one side for notes and also back side of folded notecard.When they are open they are just like one side of letter page.Also you can always use bigger notecard.I like it better this way since they are more durable,lovelier to keep and you can carry it in the library or bookstore.

@GracelynnsMommy2014I had that thought yesterday that someone can't easily get magnetic bookmark so I set up another swap.Hope it would suit you better.@mskadie also for you too and everyone else check it here

I can solve the space problem by doing the writing on computer, with smallish font and then pasting into card -- you're right cards are nicer to keep. I have several pretty ones swap-botters have sent me.

PS, I live near a big Barnes & Noble, with a great selection of book marks, magnetic and many not. Possibly those who live far from a city could get a few bookmarks on line -- use one or more for swaps and keep the rest for herself.
