Have you ever participated in the Adventures of the Traveling Postcard, hosted by @AnnieMaxine She's graciously given me permission to adapt that swap for Carpe Librum.


Choose a postcard. It can be any postcard, as long as it's not overly large, or odd shaped, pretty much any postcard that uses standard postcard rates works. Hamemade, Zazzle, Store bought, they're all fine. Write your address (including the country) on the right side, and put "Traveling Postcard - Carpe Librum Style" at the top, along with your Swap bot username. Put it in an envelope and mail it to your partners.


Take the postcard you recieved in the previous round, and send it on to the next person.

Didn't recieve a card yet? Start a new one! It's okay to have multiple cards going out, but only if you don't have a card to pass on.

When You Recieve your Partner's Postcard

Write your book recommendation on the postcard, both title and author on the left side. Put your name (Swap Bot name or real name) & country on it as well. Write small, this postcard is going to go through many people. DON'T MAIL IT BACK. You're going to send it on in the next round. Don't forget to rate your partner.

This is going to be like the Adventures of the Traveling Postcard swap, there will be multiple rounds, with a 10-14 day sign up period and a week to send. Postcards will be mailed back to their original owners once they're full.

Please do not damage the postcard you recieve, keep it where it won't get damaged until it's time to send it on. Don't send back a postcard that doesn't have the left side filled out.

Questions? Post them below.

Standard Carpe Librum rules apply: log in within a few days of the signup date, I still reserve the right to ban folks, however unlikely that may turn out.

I haven't received the one from round 2 ... & probably won't in the next 2 days ... what to do? I can sure start a new one, but when I DO receive the round 2 PC, then what do I do?
