I have mentioned this a few times already, but now the book has arrived so it’s time for an offical post! The idea is to send this book, When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore, from person to person as we each read it and make notes.
HOW DOES IT WORK
1. You receive the book from the previous reader.
2. You read it and make notes inside, and in the notebook I will provide. Anything goes as long as the text remains readable!
3. You get the address of the next person in the chain from me, and send it on.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
You must be willing to give me and whoever is in the chain before you your post address. Please make sure you actually want to participate - it would be a shame if the book got lost along the way! Comment or DM me saying
1. the country you live in;
2. whether you are willing to pay international shipping costs.
Not everyone will have to pay for international shipping, but at least one person in every country will have to in order for this to be international!
I’m going for a maximum of about 10 people (with some flexibility depending on how many people sign up) because I think the book will get very crowded if too many join. If this time doesn’t work out for you, don’t fret: I would love to do this with other books in the future! I will pick people based on the best itinerary for the book, and otherwise pick randomly.
I’ve weighed the book along with a notebook, pen, small marker, and sticky notes so everyone can see for themselves what shipping would cost for them. It’s about 415 grams altogether.
You’re free to use your own writing utensils of course, but I thought it would be nice to send something along as well. You can also include new pens, bookmarks, pressed flowers, etc. but make sure that won’t change the shipping costs too much! I think we can keep the package under 500 grams at least.
I think that’s all the information! Feel free to ask questions if you have any.
