The Readers' Journey RR 📖 Book Club

Welcome to The Readers’ Journey RR!

Books have the power to transport us to new worlds and different times.

“That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.”– Jhumpa Lahiri

This Round Robin is for all postcrossers who love reading books, who love writing postcards and who wish to combine both hobbies into the one.

Please, read these rules before joining RR!

  • The main goal of The Readers’ Journey RR is writing about books, recommendations, discussions and reading in general.

  • The best postcards for this RR are based on your partners’ preferences or book/reading related ones.

  • There are some kinds of groups, so each one has its description and sample questions/ideas for your messages, but they are only examples, not the rules. In any way you choose by yourself what to write on a card.

  • To sign up, please post here and then send @Milatra a message with your address.

  • As soon as the group is full, I will send all members of a group a message with the addresses.

  • Do not forget to write the name of this RR and your username on the postcard.

  • Please post in this thread at once you’ve sent/received cards.

Enjoy reading and have fun!
