Description:

This is the third reading log swap of 2015. It's pretty simple. Read. Write about what you read. Send your log off to two international partners.

You'll be sending your partners one reading log that contains your thoughts on all the books you read during the months of July, August, and September of 2015. The log can be in any paper format.

You need to jot down the title, the author and give a minimum of a one paragraph description about each book and your thoughts. Lets focus more on what your thoughts about the book are instead of focusing mainly on the description of the book, or at least treat it to 50/50 description/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.

The details:

a) international (sent via the post, NOT e-mailed)

b) two partners

c) minimum requirements: one book each month; one paragraph per book. Author, title, description/thoughts etc. You are writing about each book you've read this quarter, not just a select few.

Voracious readers read more than a single book a month. So there's no maximum. Your reading log should be sent NO earlier than the 15th of September.

The fine print:

Newbies welcome. Rated players need a 4.9 or higher. If you are under the requirement PM me and I will take it as a case by case. No recent "1" or "3" ratings. All participants must have a completed profile. I ban after the swap closes. As both a swap participant and coordinator, I like people to have positive swap experiences, so please no forum drama.

Changing up the dates for joining a bit this year. Now, there will be a month and a half to sign up from the end of the last quarter. Anyone who had joined but not sent for the previous quarter will be banned from the swap. Anyone who has not logged in for more than 2 weeks will be banned as well. This swap covers 3 months, I don't want people joining at the start of the quarter only to quit swapping mid way through.

Hopefully we won't need to, but I will arrange for angels if they are needed.

It seems you can already 'send' but we should wait till after September, correct?

Yup, if you read all the way through Sept, you should wait until after the month is over. The swap specifically says ~ Voracious readers read more than a single book a month. So there's no maximum. Your reading log should be sent NO earlier than the 15th of September ~ about it.

As always, would be interested in swapping with anyone that has a rather extensive log, say over 50 books, for the 3 months.
