Hi Everyone,

It is time to sign up for our annual Christmas Card and Bookmark Exchange when RT posters send each other a Christmas card with a bookmark during the Christmas season. In the past we have received cards /bookmarks from all over the United States, Canada and England. We have had authors participate as well. As always, everyone is welcome to participate, even if you don't celebrate Christmas.

The cards and bookmarks can be handmade, brought, free from the stores (libraries) or authors giveaways. They can also be recycled bookmarks that you might have received as a gift and never used. Whatever you want.

The cut-off last year was November 15th to sign up. At that time if your still interested please private message me your full name and address by November 15th. To update my list please private message me your information even if you've participated in the past. Over the Thanksgiving weekend I will send everyone the information.

Lastly, please think about whether you have the time and financial commitment for this project before signing up to participate. While we understand that emergencies and financial issues come up, we ask everyone to make a commitment to sending out the cards in order to be fair to everyone else who has gone to the time and expense to participate. I know that times are hard for everyone -- please be sure before you sign up that you take in the cost of the cards and stamps. Last year we had 27 posters who participated in this exchange.. The cost to mail a card to Canada is $.85 cents and $1.05 for England and all other countries. If you are a procrastinator, remember even sending them out right before Christmas is better than not sending them at all. If you sign up and have an emergency situation, let me know prior to November 15, the cutoff date for participating.

Everyone is welcome to participate.

“We look forward to your participation in this fun event”

This is the 7th year? Wow, I know I missed the first year, maybe even the 2nd but it still doesn't seem that long. Anyway, I debated long and hard over this because of the wedding (or not) but I figured I should be able to do it while I'm watching TV. All those cards make me feel warm and fuzzy!!! Same address as last year Danielle and thanks for organizing this again.

Do you think you should mention this on the General Board as well? Just a thought.
