2016 Reading Log - Quarter #2
Swap Coordinator:JustMeCreating (contact)
Swap categories: Books  Letters & Writing 
Number of people in swap:13
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Rating requirement:4.98
Last day to signup/drop:June 4, 2016
Date items must be sent by:July 12, 2016
Number of swap partners:2

I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by snatching this swap!
But I'm thinking that everyone who signed up for the swap that was cancelled, like me, already have a log and nothing to do with it!
So I wanted this up before everyone quits their logs! :)
Hopefully @CayleighTheShell is well and will be back in action for the next quarter's reading log!

This reading log covers:
April - May - June

What to do:
For each book you have read this quarter you must write down title, author and your thoughts on the books.
Please do not only give a description of the book, but also what you thought about it.
Write a minimum of a paragraph and at least half should be your own 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.

Please note this is a snail-mail swap!

Minimum requirements:
1 book each month
1 paragraph per book
Author, title, description/thoughts etc. You are writing about each book you've read this quarter, not just a select few!

To join:
- You must have logged books since April 1st!
- 3 months on swap-bot
- 15 rated type 2/3 swaps
- No recent unexplained bad ratings
- No late swaps on your list

Send before the deadline, rate your partner promptly and leave a comment, we all like feedback!
Hearts are of course up to you.

When to mail your log:
Please do not mail your log until late June. We want all the June books included!

Now get back to your book! And don't forget to log! :)

Thank you for rescuing this swap. Writing about what i just read has become a habit due to the previous swaps. I was sad to see it cancelled. Thanks, too, for the list expectations,

Mimicing the comments above, but thank you so much for running this! I was sad (and slightly confused, for a few reasons) to see the other one canceled, and am very glad I saw this before deleting my log! These swaps help so much with keeping me on track for my reading goals and getting me away from "screen time" for a while, so yay!

Thank you for re-creating the swap. I was so sad the previous one was canceled... Hope @CayleighTheShell is well and will be back for the next round.

I'm so happy you guys are joining in!
This was my first time in the reading log swaps and I was really looking forward to maybe getting some reading inspiration. Also I was already thinking about how to present my log to my partners, so I was really bummed when the swap was cancelled!

Why is the rating so high?????? I've been able to join previous swaps with a lower rating :( Please lower it so I can join!

JustMeCreating 06/ 1/2016 #

Hi @mellyrose89 I always set the rating high to avoid potential flakers. But I have set it to 4.98 now, so please join! :)

mellyrose89 06/ 2/2016 #

Thank you :) Was just a bit worried as I had been in the previous 2!

JustMeCreating 06/ 6/2016 #

Partners have now been assigned, but please do not mail your log till late June, we want the June books included too! :)

Have fun!
