This swap is open to all Pagan swappers, regardless of their path, tradition, practice or pantheon. If you like swaps like this, please check out the new group the Pagan Community Centre by clicking on the link.
I love books. They provide me with ideas and inspiration and ideas. Years ago, I'd collected several Wiccan themed books, but they were destroyed in a move. I'd like to re-build my witchy library, and thought maybe some of the wonderful SB community could recommend some titles. :)
This swap is International, and you will have 1 partner. Send a notecard, letter, or even a postcard to your partner and suggest one book - please include the title and author - of a book that has been a good reference to you, in relation to Pagan teachings and traditions. Different books speak to different people for different reasons - this will be a judgment free zone so I hope you will feel comfortable sharing which ever book is most helpful to you.
This should be a non-fiction type book, not a fictional story. Fictional books can certainly be inspirational and full of ideas, but consider more of a reference book. (for example, Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham vs. The Trouble With Magic by Madelyn Alt - though that is a good cozy mystery series!)
Please be sure to include the Swap Bot title and your Swap Bot ID with your recommendation. Postcards can be store bought or nicely handmade, notecards and stationery for a letter can be store bought or handmade/plain or fancy. You can be creative if you wish, but this swap is about sharing a good book more than decoration. :)
Who can join? This IS a newbie friendly swap, so new swappers may join.
Your profile MUST be WELL FILLED OUT - this shows the swap host that you are invested in being a member of swap-bot, and it gives your partner something to read, prompts of what to ask you or write about. You profile should contain several sections, and include topics about your likes/dislikes, interests, hobbies.
The send by date is not a suggestion! It is a requirement! You should be ready to send no later than the send by date. This is a simple, flat mail swap, so have a stamp ready and a card, and you should be all set. If you cannot mail on time, you MUST contact your partner and swap host. That is courtesy, and communication can solve a lot of problems.
Ratings You MUST rate your partner. If you receive a letter - and with the swap title and swap bot ID & sent on time, you should rate a 5. If there are any problems, please message your partner, and your host!
Yes, mail is moving slowly but don't use that as an excuse for not sending on time.
I will angel this swap, once communication has happened and you have rated a 1. Please contact me with any problems.
If anyone knows of a problem swapper who is signed up for this swap, please feel free to tell me in a Private Message - please do not leave comments below. I will check forums and lists, but I'm not perfect, so I welcome constructive information from other swappers.
IF you have ANY questions about this swap, please SEND ME A PM. Do not leave comments below - I won't see them, and I won't have time to respond.
Assigning partners For new swappers - the Swap Bot system assigns partners, not the host. You can find more information about it in the 'help' tab at the top right side of the screen. I cannot control who you are partnered up with, and you will be required to send to whomever you are paired up with.
Sign up ends at midnight of the day listed. I am located in the Pacific North West of the USA (Pacific time), and I try to assign partners by noon, my time, the day after the sign up deadline.
I start vetting swap members before sign up ends. If I send you a message with a question, and you don't reply by the time I assign partners, I will remove you from the swap (I don't like the word 'ban' - that is the swap-bot word) and will leave you a reason. Once partners are assigned, you are required to send to your partner and on time. I will use a manual rating filter on this swap, but if your rating is below a 4.98 be sure your 1's or 3's are explained. No un-resolved 1's or 3's, and no late sends on your dash.
This is a PAGAN pen pal swap, so if you are Christian or are members of Christian groups, I'm going to ban you from the swap.
And please consider joining the Pagan Community Centre group! :)
