About Me

My name is Vivien, I'm 29 and live with my boyfriend and little baby boy in Hamburg, Germany. I work in a bookstore and I love books! I also like analogue and instant photography and writing letters and postcards.

Favorite Books

Please check my goodreads account: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/19410772-vivien

I like contemporary novels. I prefer female authors. I like to read books from other cultures (I want to read books from every country!). But I like to read classics from time to time too.

I like crime novels (but nothing bloody or psycho, it has to be with great twists and more like a novel than a thriller).

I read 95% in German, 5% in English.

I only dont like lovestories.

When your native Language isn‘t english, i would love to get Book recommendations (But please make Sure Theres a german or english translation)

When sending me a book, please not a second or third etc part of a series! I always need to read part 1 first. And I prefer Hardcover. When you have a used Hardcover in good condition and a new paperback, I prefer the Hardcover!

Postcards

My absolutely favorite are old (the older the better!) photographs of a town (that combines two of my favorite things: photography and history!)

I like art cards. Preferable modern art, or photography or dreamy illustrations. I‘d love to receive famous or prized photographs!

Or send me a photo you took (with the story behind please!).

I love postcards with a Book theme.

I would love to receive an embroidered card.

I don't like funny and cartoon cards.

This is the link to my postcrossing favorites: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/photovivie/gallery/favourites

I prefer cards without envelope and written (something about you or a book recommendation).

Naked Postcards

If it’s a empty postcard swap i‘d prefer art cards (paintings or sculptures or photographs or mixed media, from different times, I’d like the not so famous pieces or artists). I have postcard-Penpals with which I only send art cards. So always looking for new cards for them!

Also welcome are animals in cards, ships or trains (these I can use for postcrossing ).

And I participate in the „Postcard from a place I don’t live“ swaps, so i like touristy cards too, my favourites are single air views. But the most perfect cards would be vintage cards or museum cards (:

Wishlist

I always like to get post- or greeting cards, i like stationery, books, book recommendations, bookmarks, stamps, pens, embroidery patterns... I would like to receive vegan receipes or cute DIY tutorials - HandMade with love is great! I'm always looking for empty address labels.

Did I mentioned? I love getting postcards! :D

My favorite stationery is very clean and modern. I don't like kitschy or childish stuff.

I have a Filofax in A5 and a personal size one. So accessories for them are welcome too.

And I Love Le Pen marvy pens in black! (Or similar in black - which are extremely thin)

Also on my wishlist: Books (look here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/19410772-vivien?order=d&shelf=to-read&sort=position)

Comment: Thanks so much for taking over hosting this swap! I'm trying to curtail my cookbook collection. These days I'm finding recipes online more and more, but I love foodie memoirs or cozy mysteries! Ruth Reichl is a favorite, especially her memoir, Tender at the Bone! Highly recommend all of her books!

Comment: Thank you for answering prompt and for the pretty postcard. This delicate card was bent on the side, too delicate for rough postal treatment. Such cards with age should be sent in an envelope. unfortunately. It wasn't ripped, but bent. Thanks anyway. It goes into an album. I have not seen Hamburg.
Response: Im so sorry this happened! Hope it didn’t ruin the card too much! Have a nice day!

Thank you for 3 great postcards you sent me in January and thank you for book recommendations. Soulles is one of my favorite books and I think of Gail Carriger ad my book guru every book she recommended on her blog - I loved.

Sorry it took me so long to react, I had very bad winter and it took me 4 long month to come back to myself.

Happy reading and swapping. Ksenia
