I received a postcard with these instructions on it, and I thought it would be a fun swap for our group! It's called a "Random Letter" because you select a book from your bookshelf, and craft a short letter to your partner, using certain random words from the book. The letter should be at least 10 sentences, but can be as long as you'd like to make it.

Who's game?! I think it will be fun, and of course, we will email our letters to our partners, or share your swap via a blog post or Swap-bot message. Please use English :)

Here are the instructions:

  • Select a book.

  • The first word of your letter should be the last word on page 7 of the book you selected. (Please underline each of the words from the book as you type your letter.)

  • The 5th word of your letter must be the 20th word from page 20.

  • The 2nd sentence of your letter must start with the 5th word from page 40.

  • The 6th sentence of your letter must start with the 17th word on page 56.

  • The last sentence of your letter must start with the last word of the book.

That's all there is to it! Be sure to include the title of the book you chose and your Swap-bot ID. Random, right?!

Sign-up by October 31st and send by November 12th. Please rate promptly!
