Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) I'm 30 from Tennessee USA. I love to read, write, draw in my sketchbook, play video games , go to the movies and more. I also run my own adults only book club on goodreads called The Reading for Pleasure book club so feel free to join us here:

Am only looking for friends not relationships and am happily single. Please send me a friend request if you want to PM me as I had to change my settings where only friends can message me and stuff recently due to a recent stalker attack.

Hope to chat with you soon.

Ariel  (lamot_amant) | 19 comments Hi, everyone, nice to meet you all! I'm Ariel, I'm 30 years old and from Georgia originally. Currently living in Alabama but it's not really my speed, hoping to move in the near future.

I love to read and am interested in a bit of everything. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Historical Fiction are my go-tos, though. I also love to paint, sketch, & go for hikes w/ my dog, a boxer named Leviosa. As you might presume from her name, I'm cool w/ all things geeky.

I actually met one of the best people I know in this group a couple years back so, though I've been MIA for a bit, I thought I'd check in to see how things were going & to hopefully meet some new people. Up for chatting on GR at first, possibly snail mail and such once we get to know each other a bit.

Amanda | 1 comments Hello "Happy Readers,"
My name is Amanda and I live in Arkansas, USA. I am a mom of 3 beautiful daughters and I NEVER get a chance to get out of the house and meet people, so online is my only option.

I love to read books of any type really. When I am not reading, I like to fish, play with my kids, play games on facebook, and spend time with my family. I am happily married, so I am only looking for friendships, other parents, and other readers. I am not interested in anything romantic. Feel free to message me to know more! I look forward to meeting people.

message 22: by Kjell Hansen (new)

Kjell Hansen Hi, my name is Kjell. I'm 37 and from Seattle in the US. I mainly like reading fantasy, weird fiction or science fiction but will read almost anything if I get a good recommendation.
I'd like to exchange snail-mail about any topic really. It's always great to get a different perspective on life.

Maggie the Muskoka Library Mouse (mcurry1990) Hello, my name is Maggie, and I'm 29. I live in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, and am married with two young girls. We have two dogs, and hope to own a farm in the very near future. I grew up on a hobby farm, and my husband spent several years working on one, which sparked his interest in farm-to-table eating. He's trained as a chef and currently works as a butcher. I am a huge reader, and love all genres, so it's very lucky indeed that I am employed as a librarian in our town. I enjoy singing, hiking, horseback riding, and writing, but my day just isn't complete without devouring a chapter or two! I absolutely adore getting mail, so I am hoping to find a snail-mail penpal. Shoot me a message if interested!

Noel (classicanoel) | 3 comments Hi all!

New to the group but not to letter writing. I'm only in my 30s for six more months! I'm going to miss it.

Female, 39, Ohio USA. Love science fiction, fantasy, psychological thrillers, Japanese fiction, manga, age-of-sail fiction, and Victorian literature. Also enjoy a variety of non-fiction books--just depends on my mood and interests at any given time.

Other than that, I love cats, tea, watercolor painting, drawing, fountain pens, journaling, Korean food, watching movies and TV (same genres as my book reading apply), playing my Switch (Hollow Knight is my fave, but I'm currently playing Animal Crossing), and quilting.

Used to be a professional editor but now I'm getting into software development. English is my native language, but I could limp along in Spanish if anyone wanted to do a language exchange.

Open for new pen pals! Just send me a PM. Thanks for reading!

I'm 31. I was born in Argentina but, at the moment I'm living in Germany. I speak Spanish, English and... im trying to learn German (it's a bit difficult). Also, last year i learned a little of Japanese!

I love to read because I love knowing new things.. new worlds.. new everything. And its relaxing. My taste in books is mixed. I like a little science fiction, fantasy (Terry Pratchett ist great), thrillers but also non fiction and novels like Jane Austin or Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I love, also, watching Netflix, movies and playing nintendo switch.. Im a Mario bross. fan :-)

I work as a Cake Decorator. I mix cookies, cake and art! :-)

Helen (helly_fish) | 3 comments Hi 👋

I’m Helen, currently 32 and living in the UK. I love all things stationery and have really eclectic reading and tv tastes. I’d really like to get back into writing letter so would love a snail mail pen pal but an equally happy to kick the conversation off on email or Good Reads 🙂

message 30: by Julia (new)

Julia | 2 comments Hello readers, I’m new on this app and I’ve been meaning to try snailmail ever since I first heard of post crossing. There’s something special about receiving mail with your handwritten name on it. As technology grows deeper into our habits and we put our pencils down, letters, postcards and anything hand written really has become sort of precious to me. I actually like pretty much everything related to paper - sorry trees. The touch and smell of it, and the endless possibilities of a blank page.
So, if anyone feels like writing me, please do :) let’s make the most of this quarantine thing.
I’m from Brazil, currently living in The Netherlands.

message 32: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Morrissey Hello everyone,

my name's Mimi, I am 31 years old and enjoy reading (obviously), drinking tea or a glass of wine from time to time, watching movies and series, baking, cooking, listening to music and more introvert hobbies like those.

My favourite genres are horror, thriller, mystery, fantasy and crime, but I enjoy a lot of the other stuff as well.
