Last year it has been a success.
Even if most of us uses eBooks, we are such book lovers that we can't possibly live without some "real books" every now and then. And with "real books" you need ... bookmarks!
Therefore if you like to receive a bookmark from one of ur member - and send one out - write down your name. We'll wait till the 20th of November. After that I'll organize the "ring" of who sends to whom.
Any bookmark is perfect for this: something you do, something you design with your computer, something you buy because you like or because it remembers the place you live in or you love.
After the ring is out, you have a week or so to send the bookmark away, so that it can be received before Christmas.
Who's interested?

This was such great fun last year, I really enjoyed picking mine and got a lovely one in return.

Unfortunately I'm going to be away from the 12th December so I think it will be a bit tight especially if I get an member from outside the UK. I look forward to seeing your swaps!

Great. Would you please write down where are you from? And if you have any whish - like sending only in Europe/USA and so on. You can edit your own post so not to make this thread to long - with the risk of my loosing someone on the street!!!
Tomorrow I'll write dow the complete list and see if someone else like to "come in"!!!

For those who don't want to send things by post, if they like, we can have a swap of files by email

I think something made by the member with some computer program and then the other member will print it.


message 35: by Noel (new)

Noel Brady (noel-brady) Ah, I'd prefer receiving a physical bookmark too, no email files please :) I will be sending a physical one as well.

I'll edit my original comment when I get off my phone and on an actual computer.

message 37: by Meran (new)

Meran | 80 comments Post #18. I'm in the US, will mail anywhere, no email files either. I like to see (and feel) "the hand of the maker". ;)

Are we just being matched with one other? I'm fine with more. And just a note: because of some countries' postal snail service (I'm yelling at you, Canada! ;) ) we should prob mail these before American Thanksgiving.

(I've been doing trades by mail since 2007. Even through a few strikes in Canada and the UK, if my memory serves.)

I'm excited to do this with all you Readers!


message 38: by Evelyn (new)

Evelyn | 1410 comments Thank you for explaining Dely! I prefer the real deal as well.

Meran, I'm guessing you have a history with Canada Post ; )


message 39: by Mari (new)

Mari | 50 comments You have me down for US only. Did you mean to do that? Maybe confusing me with someone else?


message 40: by Mari (new)

Mari | 50 comments I apologize for the multiple posts, I have no way to edit... I prefer postal service... not by email. Thanks so much!


message 41: by Erica (new)

I traded ATCs for 7 yrs, so yeah ;)
We found two to three weeks to be average, so Secret Santas were mailed by end of the first week in Nivember. To account for Canada Post AND the Holiday mail overload LOL

PS. Mine are homemade. With a ribbon tail.
