Dear Beautiful Readers,
What's your favorite part of reading? Pick out a good book you've read recently (or an old favorite) and tell us about your favorite part. Was it a perfect scene that has stuck in your head? Was it the way the ending made you feel? Or was it was the moment when you realized the two main characters had finally fallen in love? Is the best part right when you've figured out the mystery of Whodunit , or is it in the puzzling out as the mystery is starting to unfold? :)

Give some thought to your favorite part of a book and then write about it on a postcard! We've been using a new format for 2109, so if you've not played yet this year, please glance over the guidelines...


A. Sign up by posting below.

B. Click on the person posting above you and send them a personal message with your mailing address.

C. When someone signs up below you, send a postcard to them.

D. Tell us when you've sent your postcard by EDITING your original post. You can also let us know when you've rcvd a postcard by editing your original post.

As Usual:

You will send one postcard and you will receive one postcard. The postcard can be store-bought or hand-made and can have any kind of picture on the front. We are an International group. Newbies are so very welcome!


• Your Signup Post: Make it obvious that you are signing up. The list of signup posts will be similar to the group of 5 addresses that we used to get, in that you are sending a postcard to the person listed below. Please skip any posts that are not signups. Also consult the official "Send To" list (message #2 in this thread). It will be updated regularly.

• When you message the person posting above to provide your postal mailing address, please type the address exactly as it should appear on the postcard: Your name should be the first line and your country should be the last line.

(Please do NOT leave your mailing address on our signup thread.)

If you are unable to message the person posting above you, for whatever reason, please message one of the mods, and we'll get stuff sorted out.

• When you EDIT your original post, please type in the date of your additions as well. Your post might look like this:

Sign me up! I’m on the west coast of the US in Oregon.
3 april… Postcard sent to "xyz-person-below".
9 april… Postcard from "abc-person-above" rcvd

If you have questions or problems, you can message me or either of the other moderators.

Happy Mailing,


• Message the person above you
• Send a postcard to person below you
• Please write GR PC Apr somewhere on your postcard!
