This is the Third reading log swap of 2014! 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 2014. 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 4.8 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.

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

Did you mean your reading log should be sent no earlier than the 15 of September?

I have 2 of the 3 months done, just getting up the energy to type up the third month and send it off. I guess with a few days left in the month, I have time.

CayleighTheShell 09/27/2014 #

You do! The send by Date is October 6th. I always like to give a week after the third month ends because personally I usually end up finishing a book right at the end of the month and want to include it.
