Traveling "1st Paragraphs" of a book, Round 3 INTERNATIONAL version

This will be an ongoing swap. Please only join if you plan to join in every month, to keep the letters moving. If you have to drop out at any time (provided it's not during an active swap) please contact me, to send me what you have.

In this INT'L version ~ each swap will run around 6 weeks in length, allowing for postal times. Please send your swap early to insure it arrives in a timely manner

For Round 3 ~

If you were in the previous round of swaps, you will have received the swap. What arrived to you was a copy of the first paragraphs of a book and a separate list that had the title of the book, author and the user name of the person who sent it.

In this round, you will now add a NEW book to the list that you received. On the sheet of paper, number the next line with a 3, add your book title, author of the book, and your user name. On a separate sheet, copy the first few paragraphs (or page, whatever is a good stopping point) either by hand or typing it out. Make it a DIFFERENT book than the ones you have sent out so far, since we are sending the swap around we don't want to see the same book over and over, so pick a new one. EACH round must be a completely different book than any you sent in a previous round.

Once you have completed these steps. Put the sheet of books together with BOTH your former partner's swap and your own swap and send it on to your new partner.

If you didn't join in the first round, you may still join in. Just start your own sheet with the number 1, title of book, author and your SB user name. Then it'll be round 2 for you next time and you'll send the one you get this time on.

Re-cap ~

  • On notebook paper, number your entry 3 (or 1 if you are joining for the first time) adding Title of book, author, & your Swap-Bot username
  • On 2nd page, number with 3 (or 1) and copy first few paragraphs from any book
  • If you have joined in before make sure your book is another new one, NO repeats!!
  • Send on to your partner

When you receive a swap, hold on to it after rating, as you will send it on with yours in the next Round.
