This swap is for those of you that love to read, as I do. For this swap we will answer the questions listed below and then give 5 recommendations of books that we loved and think others should read.

We will each have 3 partners and we will copy and paste the questions below into an email and send them to our partners using BCC (Blind Carbon Copy).

This is the first email swap I've ever joined. I really like snail mail, but I love reading books and talking about books so I couldn't resist.

user2637 03/13/2013 #

Hiya. Can you tell me what "Bad book habit" means please? It's #4.

LindaRichards 03/13/2013 #

@user2637 maybe it means like "dog earring" the pages or setting a drink on the book cover as a coaster or something like that, or buying too many books?

StacyReneeArt 03/13/2013 #

Thank you, Linda. :) Yes, it could mean any of those things. Maybe you borrow books from friends and never return them? Or always keep a book from the library for too long and end up having to pay late fees? Maybe you like to eat while reading and get fingerprints all over books?

user2637 03/13/2013 #

Ah, okay. Thanks.

Thank you to everyone who joined and put this swap on the Top Swaps list! :)

Fever 03/16/2013 #

Hey, I'm just answering the questions and I'm stuck at the "comfort zone" ones. After answering them I realised I might have got it wrong. Do you mean the place where you read by comfort zone or the kind of book you read?

StacyReneeArt 03/16/2013 #

@Fever - I personally answered it as 'what kind of book I read' but you are free to interpret the questions in whatever way you feel comfortable with. Also, partners have been assigned. I apologize for not getting them up sooner. I was gone all day.
