Welcome to Round 3 of our Giant Friendship Book Series!
If this is your first time participating in the series, here is what you do: You will take a composition book, write an introductory letter about yourself inside, and send it off to your partner. Then next month your partner will pass it on to the next person, and so on. Then, when the book is full, it will be returned back to you full of letters from potential penpals! : ) I thought this would be a neat way to get to know everyone in the group.
Feel free to decorate your composition book any way you'd like... or not at all. But make sure you include your mailing info on the last page so that when it's full it can be returned to you.
Your intro letter can be any length, but I'd try to shoot for at least 2 pages. The purpose of the letter will be to tell a little about yourself so that a potential penpal will know if you share enough interests to want to write you back. You can even decorate your pages with stickers, artwork, pictures... anything you'd like to do to get your personality out there.
Make sure you include at least your username in your letter, but you can add your full mailing contact info as well if you'd like.
If you participated in the previous round, you will now take the book you received from your partner and write an introductory letter on the next available pages. If you receive a book you've already written an intro letter in, go ahead and write another letter, either adding more "introduction" info or writing about what's going on in your life like a normal letter.
After you receive a book from your partner, go to our Group Discussion Forum and log whose original book it is on the "Giant Friendship Book Series" sticky. That way we can keep up with who has our book. :) You MUST do this to receive a 5 rating for this swap!!!
