I‘ve seen so much interest in joining more postal book clubs like #lmpbc and #horrorpost. The last swap I hosted (#bibliophilebookexchange) was almost a year ago! So, I decided to create the #genreswapPBC for those looking to join a postal book club with a twist! For this, you will be placed in a group with people who have chosen many different genres. Hopefully this PBC can take us on adventures, reading books we never would have before. 👇🏻

collegecatlady Below, you will find the signup link. The form has additional information on it as well! https://goo.gl/forms/AZYP9FJ4V2t5wJCu1 4y
collegecatlady @abbsinwonderland I saw your post about looking for PBCs and thought you would like to know about this one I‘m starting! 4y
collegecatlady Additionally, if anyone who signs up could repost that would be great!! 4y

TheRomantiCate @collegecatlady this might be a silly question, but will we eventually get our book back? 4y
Bronte_Chintz Love this idea! May have to see if some U.K Littens want to give it a go! 😊👍🏻 4y
collegecatlady @TheRomantiCate Yes! You will get it back once everyone in your group has read it and written their comments. PBCs are super fun because of this since you get your book back with great insights and comments from fellow littens! (edited) 4y
Shadowfat This sounds great! I like the different genre aspect 4y
collegecatlady @Shadowfat Thanks! I hope you‘ll join us! 4y
Shadowfat @collegecatlady I plan on it! I just need to pick my book choices 😀 4y
Wife How many rounds of mailing? And do we write in books like #LMPBC or in notebooks? It was hard for me at first, but now I like to write in the books ✏️📖😈. 4y
collegecatlady @Wife When you sign up, you can choose if you‘d like to be in a group of 3-5 people or 5-8 people, which determines how many rounds. You can choose whether people write in your book or a journal. I am leaving that up to personal preference. When you receive a book, you will just do as the owner asks (write in the book or not). I hope you‘ll join us! 4y
Wife Ok thanks. One more question. When do you anticipate starting the rounds? 4y
collegecatlady @Wife I will take signups for a while and create the groups and have all book titles chosen by June 10. We will begin on June 15 with the first month which is reading your own book and writing your thoughts. On July 15, we will ship our book to the next in line. Our ship date will be the 15th of every month. 4y
Wife Thanks. Sounds good! 4y
BookwormAHN Thanks for the tag. I'm in 😸 4y
collegecatlady @BookwormAHN Glad to hear it!! 4y
abbsinwonderland @collegecatlady thank you for the tag! I'll sign up in a bit 😄 4y
TheRomantiCate @collegecatlady ok, another question that came to me... if I read my book and make my notes in a separate journal and send THAT journal as well, that‘s where everyone will make their notes as well, right? I‘m just 😰 about marking up my books... 4y
collegecatlady @TheRomantiCate Yes, exactly. You can see my comment above but this will all be the senders preference. If you send a journal for notes, everyone in your group will use the journal. Some group members may prefer that you write in their book, use post it notes, etc and that request should be honored when it is your turn with their book. 4y
TheRomantiCate @collegecatlady oh ok, gotcha!! 4y
collegecatlady @TheRomantiCate No problem and let me know if you have any other questions! 4y
TheRomantiCate @collegecatlady will do!! Thanks so much 😁 4y
SledgeReader @collegecatlady love this idea so much! Excited to see it play out to consider as a team building exercise at work. My work/playground is a public library! And I especially like the idea of collective footprints in the books. Genius! 😎 4y
collegecatlady @SledgeReader It‘s such a fun activity! I hope you‘ll join us! 4y
SledgeReader @collegecatlady I just signed up! Feel free to move me into a bigger group if needed to round out your numbers. 4y
collegecatlady @SledgeReader Great! Glad to have you with us! 4y
BooksIHeld WOW this is AWESOME! I'm def gonna sign up! 4y
collegecatlady @intervital Glad to have you join us! This should be super fun! 4y
Dulcinella Are you splitting up between continents to send? 4y
collegecatlady @Dulcinella This is US only, sorry 4y
Dulcinella Ok, no problem:-) 4y

Finally getting a chance to post my goodies from @Read4life during the #bibliophilebookexchange. I'm so happy that In The Woods was one that you choose for me. As I was picking out books for you, this was one I contemplated on buying a copy for myself to read as well! And the cat coin purse and book mark is perfect! Thank you so much!

Read4life Glad you like it! 🤓 5y

Thanks to the #bibliophilebookexchange run by @collegecatlady , I had the opportunity to read this fun thriller. This was such a quick and fun read on a woman finding what exactly her mother used to do, while also investigating her husband. While some things got neatly tied up, it was hard to put down. A good thriller.

Thanks to @laurennalepa for my #bibliophilebookexchange package! I've never read either book and I'm excited for both. And had to share the beautiful art work she made and sent me! Love it all! ❤️
