This is the second reading log swap of 2017! 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 April, May and June 2017. 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 June.

The fine print:

Newbies welcome. Rated players need a 4.95 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.

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.

A special thank you to @mellyrose89 , for keeping the swap going in 2016 when I needed a break.

Hi, I have joined this swap today. So do i need to wait till May 15th for partners to be assigned ? Please help in clarifying this as i am new to this site.

You can start your log right away. No need to wait for partners to be assigned.

Third Quarter is up!

I'm confused. The swap deadline says July 3rd, but the text says mail no later than June 15. Sorry, but I go by what it says up top, not buried in all the text. I read that when I'm signing up, but when I'm checking my swaps, that's not where I look for the deadline.

I'm hoping that was a typo?

Actually, Carol, it said: "NO earlier than...", not no later... unless it's been changed since you read it. But this is how I see it as of July 1st.
