The original host of this swap series @LauRad83 hasn’t been around Swap-Bot in quite a while so.! And the other person that was hosting it was also @PrettyAlice but I saw that she was taking a break. With that being said let’s get these notebooks moving again


If you have a book from the previous swap fill it out and send it to your partner. For new participants read below.

To start, find a small softcover book about A5 size (5x7 inches). Something like a travel notebook inserts with about 30 pages should work perfectly. The book should not be too thick or heavy and please no spiral books. Think about the weight of the book and the cost of sending it.

The first person starting the book will decorate the cover however they choose, wallpaper, wrapping paper, anything you like.

Inside the front cover write your name, address (so the book is returned when it is full) swap name and your swap-bot username.

On a page or 2 write a bit about your day, your location, something about the weather, whatever. You may decorate the page if you wish. Add a photo, a drawing if you wish, and tape in with washi or clear tape. Use only pens that do not bleed onto the next page, please. Don't forget to date your entry. You may add something separate for your partner if you wish, a pen pal intro letter or something else related to their likes, but you don't have to. Also, write your swapbot ID so you can be rated.

When you are done with your page send the book onto your partner.

That partner will then wait for the next swap in this series and fill out their page(s) and send on to their partner and so on.

Once the book is full the last person to write in the book will send it to the owner of the book, and start a new book

The whole process then starts again.

At the end when your book is returned to you, you will have a book full of stories from around the country.

Please allow plenty of time to receive and send the book. This swap will take commitment to subsequent swaps in this series. If you don't plan on continuing with later swaps please don't join. I'm sorry but this is supposed to be fun.

Any questions please message me

Please keep the books to A5 or smaller and no heavy hardcover books please. Be considerate of others who will have to pay for postage to send the book in each round.

I got my journal back (incomplete) from someone who said they could no longer join the swap due to the cost. Anyone need a notebook due to being flaked on or had a homer from last round or one got lost in the mail?

I also have two books because mine was returned to me incomplete and I had to send it out again because I hadn’t received the previous swap so if anyone needs a book I am happy to pass it along
