If you are my swap partner in a swap that involves food-stuffs, here are some ideas!

CANDY: I LOVE candy! If there is candy around, I'll be eating it! I prefer chewy/gummy candies, not so much hard ones. Some of my favourites are:
• twizzlers
• haribo (anything!)
• hi-chew
• "swedish" candies (fish, berries, etc)
• Wonka candies (nerds, bottlecaps, etc)

TEA: I drink SO much tea! Usually around 3 liters a day. My favourites are:
• chai
• fun flavours of roiboos
• earl gray
• lavendar (actual lavendar, not just flavoured)

OTHER GOODIES:
• timtam cookies
• pocky
• cookies & cream

VEGETARIAN

Allergic to ginseng & catnip (weird, I know!)

Wishlist

•I love vintage union stuff, especially banners and buttons. I would be happy with any union, though postal unions would be especially fantastic!
•I would love to get Kawaii stuff! Especially older sanrio, though not Hello Kitty or My Melody (my favourites are Keroppi and Bad Badtz Maru). I have been searching for sanrio stationary and am not having much luck at all. So, if you have any awesome kawaii stationary laying around, you can send it my way!
•I also really like Diddl stationary, which I also can't get here.
•If you are in Aotearoa, I would love love LOVE anything to do with L&P! I was lucky enough to visit your amazing country several years ago and I seriously couldn't drink enough of the stuff. SO GOOD! 😍

Thanks in advance!

Dislikes

•Cheap washi/deco tape - please don't send me washi from the dollar store or Wal-mart; I quite dislike it and have no use for it
•Coffee (can't drink it, though like coffee themed items)
•Makeup (I don't wear any)
•Earrings (my ears are gauged, so normal earrings don't fit)
•Scents (unless it's all natural, I get crazy bad headaches and likely won't even open a package of there is any perfume)

Comment: Wow you did really good! And now I have a bunch of books to add to my list. I don't know if I should thank you or be mad that I'll never clear out my too read list! (May I haunt a used bookstore when I die)

Comment: Thank you for your beautiful letter! I don’t read a lot of crime dramas, so it was neat to see someone who loves them analyze them. I was particularly interested in The Long Way Round and The Sun And Her Flowers. I love travel stories & I don’t read as much poetry as I would like. In regards to spoken word and if you don’t already know him, look up George Watsky. He’s a spoken word poet turned rapper with a really good autobiography, available in audiobook & print.

Comment: Thanks for the great Doctor Who postcard. I agree with you, my favourite Doctor whas number 10 but I loved Amy and Rory as companions and also River Songs story. I'm also curious how Jodie Wittaker will play this role. I think it's cool to have a female Doctor and I think that those on social media who are whining about that the doctor can't be a female are a bit conservative just because there wasn't a female Dr before doesn't mean it isn't possible. Thanks again for the great card for my collection.

Comment: Thanks for your list -- and congrats for reading so much. It's a pleasure to get a list with quite a bit of variety --even a book of poetry! hurray for you. I think probably Canadian bookstores and libraries get a somewhat different variety of books than in the US. Most names are unfamiliar to me.

Comment: These are awesome suggestions. I tend to read a lot of historical fiction so I love getting recommendations of other kinds. I'm currently reading The Leavers by Lisa Ko, but I'm struggling to get in to it. And, I'm listening to Hilary Clintons book on audible. What is the reading challenge you are doing?
Response: I am doing the BookRiot Read Harder challenge as well as the one at my local library (loosely based on the read harder challenge). They're so much fun!

Comment: Thank you for this FABulous swap Charity! When I received your swap yesterday I went directly to Barnes & Noble to look for FLOW. I had been hearing of it lately and your letter convinced me to check it out. I got the Chaos issue and I love it! I will certainly be subscribing. I found another cool one that is similar from the UK called Daphne's Diary. Thank you so much for everything, you made my day xoxoxo
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! 😊

Comment: Thank you for the log! It's always nice to see a list of new books to read. I love that you read so much. I average around 100 books/year. My library loves me. I'll definitely check many of these out, though crime/thrillers/horror books are my cup of tea. Many, I think, will fit in with what I do enjoy. Thank you again!
