I am over half way done myself. :-) It's always good to be prepared.

gewalli 02/17/2011 #

I'm done too, I can't wait to send it :)

Artistic 02/21/2011 #

great swap idea. I'm in.

nhansen73 02/21/2011 #

I am also done and I, as well, can not wait to send my answers. This swap should also be done as a snail mail swap. I would love to do that as well.

tex82 02/21/2011 #

I didnt understood

024) Ever play the card game, Authors? 051) Do you own any book totes? Do you use them? 052) Favorite Book chain Store? 067) Do you prefer gift books from others to be inscribed or not?

user2637 02/22/2011 #

024) There's a card game named Authors -http://www.djmcadam.com/authors-card-game.html

051) Book totes are bags meant to carry books in (and sometimes they say something about books on them).

052) Favorite bookstore, which is a chain store. So, not the little corner bookstore, but rather Barnes N Noble, Borders, Waldenbooks, etc.

067) If someone gives you a book as a gift/present, do you like them to write in it (like, "For tex82, Happy Birthday! Love, Your Aunt"), or not to write in it.

Hope that helps!

Thanks user! ;)

tex82 02/23/2011 #

Thanx for answer, now I answer all my questions. Just wait for the swap day! ^^

One tip (as a past member of other e-mail swaps) - always check with your partner if you haven't received anything from them. Sometimes things are sent to "junk" or "spam" by some e-mail programs. :)

moxsapphir 02/23/2011 #

Very true! Also sometimes a certain file wont open in other's computers, so make sure to communicate with your partners in case you're having a problem opening a file. I sometimes have problems with pdf, but hopefully my new laptop can handle it. :)
