All you need is the Overdrive App (free) on your phone/tablet/pc etc.

All the info is here:

message 19: by Tosia (new)

Tosia | 2 comments Well then, how should I start...
I'm looking for a penpal - if you haven't already guessed.
I've fallen deeply and completely for The Great Gatsby.
And books, everything about them.
But i absolutely hate online versions, ebooks...
Now, no one I know seems to understand... So if you're interested, you know what to do *please reply*
*we might get along better if your vocabulary is enriched by sarcasm like mine:)*

I should also probably add that my name is Tosia and I am 15.

message 20: by Vishal (new)

Vishal Ramesh (bbloggsbott) I'm Batman.

Sorry, too Nerdy for a first Impression.

My name is Vishal. I'm 19. I am in the third year of college.

I'm a YouTube addict (I love The Richest, Veritasium, Cody's Lab, and New Rockstars). I love reading books and Machine Learning. Fantasy and Sci-Fi are my favorites. I am a tech geek, and love to know stuff. I am a good listener. I hate all sports, even in the form of video games and bet I am The laziest man on Earth. I am silent at first but once I get comfortable, there is no stopping me. I am a Die hard superhero fan. I could go on about me.

My responses might be a bit late due to the huge workload dumped on me in college.

Message me and I'll share my email ID with you.
Have a great day.

A Lazy Geek

Therese (theresbooks) Hi everybody!
My name's Therese, I'm 18 and at college. I'm looking for someone around my age (so 16-19) to talk about books/life with! I like classics, fantasy, literary fiction, and I'll read pretty much everything I can get my hands on. Outside of reading I love to hike and kayak (and just be outside!) and I'm hoping to be an English major.
Don't be afraid to message me. I hope we can be friends!! :)

I'm Sophie and I'm from The Netherlands. I'm 16 years old and it is underrated when I tell you that I love to read. YA is my favourite but I also love those teenromance stories idk why :)
I probably already watched all the movies on Netflix because I'm a movie addict. What else is there about me?? I guess i have a kind of weird taste in music, I love LOVE K-pop, like BTS, EXO and so many more. I recently started to watch Kdrama's aswell and boy I loveeeee them!!
If you are interested in talking with me I would love to make some new friends to talko to, about stuff like books and life..
Greetsings from me<3

Hey! I'm Leah! I'm looking for a pen pal! I like reading, playing sports (specifically basketball, volleyball, and field hockey), dance, art (mostly photography and graphic design), crafts, and playing outside. When I grow up, I want to become a pediatrician, or a trapeze artist. I'm learning Spanish, so if anyone speaks Spanish, it would be great if I could practice. Please message me!

message 46: by marta (new)

marta Hi! I'm Márta, and I'm a 19 year old girl from Hungary. Few years ago I used to read a lot (maybe too much to be honest) and somehow I lost my motivation in completing books. I'm trying to get it back now, and maybe with a penpal it would be easier. The genres I like the most are thriller and mystery, but I'm open to any kind of books, so if you would like to talk with me about them, maybe recommend me some, and enjoy this low quality English I have send me a private message.

message 48: by Jordan (last edited Jun 30, 2020 08:08PM) (new)

Jordan | 2 comments Hi, my name is Jordan and I'm a girl in the US. I love realistic and dystopian fiction as well as historical fiction. I am starting to enjoy classics and have reread Pride and Prejudice a few times. I love learning, but non-fiction books really aren't my thing. Crafting however is my thing and my crafts vary from sewing to scrapbooking to beading and just about everything else ( with the exception of yarn ). I also play high school softball and love weightlifting. I would really like to find a Snail Mail penpal if anyone is interested please IM me!

Mia (mia_riley) | 1 comments Hey there! I'm Mia (16) and I'm from the US. I enjoy all types of fiction, especially fantasy and dystopian novels. I enjoy gardening, hiking, arts & crafts, jamming out to new music and of course, reading! If I'm ever missing, you can find me at Hobby Lobby or outside with my plants and pets. I'm looking for someone to get creative with via snail mail. Let me know if anyone is looking for a new pen pal!
