I am offering this swap again since everyone had so much fun last time and asked me if I would host another one. :)

Ever tried Blackout Poetry?

I got this idea from author Sara Addison Allen's facebook page. She used a page out of her book The Sugar Queen to make a blackout poem.

For this swap, you will photocopy a page from your favorite book, then blackout all but a few words. There's a poem hidden inside. Sounds pretty easy, doesn't it? Let's see what kinds of neat poetry we can come up with.

You will have 2 partners and will send a photocopied blackout poem to each of them. You can decorate it if you wish, but it is not a requirement. Use your imagination!

You can add a little extra surprise in the envelope if you wish but it is not a requirement.

*You need to have a rating of 4.8 or above to participate in this swap.

*If you have unexplained 1s or 3s on you profile, please PM me if you feel like you should be allowed to join.

*Please do not flake on this swap. It is a fairly easy one to do so there shouldn't be any flakers.

*I will angel if I need to but I am hoping everyone will carry through.

I have a international version too.

Can I use a book that is not a favorite, thus ruining the only copy I have?

That is my non religious books.

Oh wait never mind. My head is bouncing steel balls of the sides and I did not read the photocopy part. DUH! I need to go to bed.
