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.
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.
