You can still join, also if you haven’t done the previous round(s).

You will sent a small notebook (the mesurements of the one I sent were 10,5 cm x 7 cm x 0,2 cm - so flat mail with low postage) to one partner.

In this book you will write your name & that you are the owner of it.

You will stamp a (rubber or clear or handcarved - you don't have to but you can even decorate it - ) stamp into it.

Under the stamp you write your name and/or nickname, the city/country you live in and the date.

The idea is that this book will keep on travelling in next rounds and each time someone will put a stamp in it, and finally it will return back to you, so don't forget to put your address in it!

In mine I also wrote an explanation about it, so if someone would pass it forward to a penpal or in another swap instead of the next round, the receiver will also know what to do with it.

I also wrote that if the last person who gets it & has to sent it back to the owner, will receive a surprise (but that's not an obligation to write into the book).

But when sending the book to your partner you will also sent a small -senders choice- surprise (stickers, postcard, ...) so that your partner also has something to keep. Because the book will be forwarded!

It can also be nice to put your stamp also on another paper for your partner to keep.

Let me know if there are anymore questions & enjoy this round!

P.S.: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVED A FULL BOOK IN THE LAST ROUND?: You’ll have to sent this book back to the owner, so you can’t forward it again in a next round. But off course you can join this round with a new book you bought/created.

P.S.: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU DECIDE TO STOP JOINING THE NEXT ROUNDS, BUT YOU STILL HAVE A BOOK FROM SOMEONE?: You can sent it back to the owner, even if it isn’t full yet. Or you can sent it to me or contact me to find out how to contact the owner. Or sent it to a penpall or someone of who you are sure they will forward it. Or ask on the forum if someone would like to receive and forward it. Ideas enough but don’t just keep it at home. Thank you! :)

So should we keep signing up for different rounds?

@TheRealMissMonogram you are free to decide if you join the next round(s) or not, or you can skip a round if you don't have much time, but if you decide not to join anymore you should sent to book forward to someone or back to the owner: see the second P.S.
