Sent to Israel and the United States

I bought a small load of Jetoy cards a month or so ago; today, I sent out my first two, as a part of a swap-bot trade.

I like the hula-hula cat best.

These cards are have a different layout than cards here in the U.S.: the orientation is vertical, with a place for the stamp on the left-hand side.  I’m afraid the post office will have a fit!  I would ignore this design, but for the fact that doing so would result in dark vertical lines through my writing.

This was a “book lovers” trade, in which one option was to list the last five books we read.  Here are mine (not necessarily in order):

1) Agent to the Stars, by John Scalzi

2) Desert Exile, by Yoshiko Uchida

3) Coyote, by Linda Barnes

4) The Shadow Hero, by Gene Luen Yang

5) Return to a Sexy Island, by Neil Humphries

Oceanside, California is the destination of the top card, to a swap-botter who says she is a huge reader, and even remembers being a small child reading side-by-side with her mother (each with her own book) on the family couch.

The coconut kitty under the palm is headed for Ramat Gan, Israel, to a trader I have been matched with several times.  Her list of favorite books includes two each by Neil Gaiman and Jane Austen.

I got a little more interesting than usual with the stamps:
