Description:

This is the third reading log swap of 2012. It's pretty simple. Read. Write about what you read. Send your log off to two international partners.

You'll be sending your partners one reading log that contains your thoughts on all the books you read during the months of July, August and September of 2012. The log can be in any paper format.

You need to jot down the title, the author and give a minimum of a one paragraph description about each book and your thoughts.

Feel free to include things like favorite quotes, the author's Web site, etc.

This swap is about what you enjoy reading, not what your partners may or may not like. It doesn't matter what you read: fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, Manga, zines, audio books, e-books, children's, etc.

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. The format is up to you: journal, letter, zine, tag book, etc.

The details:

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 read more than a single book a month. So there's no maximum. Your reading log should be sent NO earlier than the 15th of September.

The fine print:

Newbies welcome. Rated players need a 4.8 or higher. If you are under the requirement PM me and I will take it as a case by case. 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.

Hopefully we won't need to, but I will arrange for angels if they are needed.

To my partner, can you please write the log and not type it, if possible? Thanks.

I'm so looking forward to this swap. :)

Sorry I didn't know about the swap the first two quarters. I always keep a record of books I've read and enjoy sharing my somewhat peculiar taste with others.

@KraftyKaren I don't think I could- I read too much writing it out by hand twice would kill me- and I love writing. I hope you get someone who can.

VERY bummed that I missed this round ... the first I've not been in since I launched this swap years ago. Was out of town for much of July and only had sporadic checks in to the site. If anyone wants to do a one-on-one swap, let me know. I continue to keep a log.

Hi Everyone! Swap deadline edited to Monday the 8th. I'm sorry, I always try to make sure not to put the deadline on a Sunday when the mail doesn't run I don't know why I didn't notice this earlier!!! Off to check and make sure the 4th quarter has a monday deadline. lol
