Years ago, we did a Carpe Librum traveling postcard. It kind of died out, and I would like to revitalize it.
For the first round, you will be sitting up your postcard. You can do this in advance of being assigned a partner.
Find a postcard you like that is 4″ x 6″, or 107mm x 152mm. This allows the postcard to easily fit in a normal envelope, as well as not requiring additional postage.
On the back, address the postcard to yourself. At the top, post the swap (CL: Traveling Book Card), and your Swap Bot name. Then, draw pairs of lines on the message side of the card. Aim for 4-7 pairs of lines.
If you're confused, or you're like me and like to see examples, please visit the Traveling Book Card Information and FAQ.
Once your postcard is set up, pop it in an envelope. Once partners are assigned, send it off.
When You Receive your Partner's Postcard You will be filling out one of the sets of lines. The top line is a book you recommend and the author. If you need to, let it run to the second line. Then, the bottom line should be your Swap Bot name, and your location.
You can choose how you want to put your location in. You can choose your town, state/province, and country, or some combination of them. At the very least, include your country so we can see where the postcards are traveling to.
Again, if you're not sure what to do, there are visuals on the Traveling Book Card Information and FAQ.
Let's revive this and send some book recommendations to our fellow swappers!
