Dear Beautiful Readers,
(Sorry this signup thread is a few days late... Summer Distractions! ;)

I keep track of the books I read in a Reading Journal... and since I've not been very good about writing book reviews here at GR lately, I make sure to pay more attention to my written log. I keep it near my usual reading area and try to write in it every time I finish a book or magazine.

Have you ever kept a Reading Journal, or do you write about books in your regular journal? What kind of information do you record? Do you have a place to keep the quotes you find? What are your thoughts about keeping a Reading Log or Journal in conjunction with GoodReads?

That's our writing topic for July!!

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!

The Details

• 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.
7 july… Postcard sent to "xyz-person-below".
25 july… Postcard from "abc-person-above" rcvd

Please feel free to message me or either of the other moderators with any questions.

Happy Day,
