This is the First reading log swap of 2014! (Welcome to the new year!) 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 January, February and March of 2014. 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 per book. Author, title, description/thoughts etc.

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 March.

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. No recent "1" or "3" ratings. 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.

do audio books count? I mean I read books and I listen to them as well sometimes (that means I can read and do crafts!)

I count audiobooks. I don't care if my eyes read them, or my ears hear them, they're a book consumed to me.

CayleighTheShell 01/27/2014 #

Oh yea audio books definitely count.

I'll be assigning partners on the 28th!
