Let's do it again, readers!!!
This swap is for people who love to read and would like to both keep track of what they've read and share their lists with two other readers and/or bibliophiles. We had a successful run for 2008 and I've had requests to do it again.
You'll be sending your partners a reading log that contains your thoughts on all the books you read in January, February and March 2009. The log can be in any paper format.
It doesn't matter what you read: fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, Manga, zines, audio books, e-books, children's, etc. You just need to jot down the title, the author and give a minimum of a one paragraph description about the book and your thoughts. You can feel free to include things like favorite quotes, the author's Web site, etc. Whatever you want to say about the book.
There will be four swaps throughout the year (one posted each quarter). You can join one or all. For 2008, there were 11 people who participated for the whole year.
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. It can be as simple as a piece of notebook paper, a mini-journal, a letter, a zine, a quarter-fold newsletter, etc. The format is up to you.
a) international (sent via the post, NOT e-mailed)
b) two partners
c) minimum requirements: one book each month; one paragraph about the book. Author, title.
Voracious readers, like your host, read more than a single book a month. :) And since you're considering this swap, you probably read more than one as well! So there's no maximum. If you read it in January, list it under that month in your log, and so on.
The fine print:
Newbies welcome. Rated players need a 4.8 or higher. 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.
