My good friend Jennifer sent me a chain letter It arrived in today's mail. I opened it up and thought "What in the world is THIS?"
What it is is an "informal book club".
It's really kind of a cool idea. What you do is mail out one book that you've already read (and enjoyed - no "crap books" please) to the person listed on the back of the letter you get. You only have to send one book. Then you make 6 photocopies of the letter, and mail it to six of your friends. Along with each of the letters you mail out, you send out 6 labels that have your return address on them. Then YOUR friends put your return address on the backs of the 6 letters they
send to their friends, and it goes on like so.
Anyway, if no one breaks the chain, you wind up receiving 36 books. And, assuming your friends (who I know are all cool and intelligent people) send their letters to likewise cool and intelligent people, you'll probably get some REALLY nifty books.
Pretty neat idea, huh?
(Suz, you're getting one of these. Everyone else.... I don't know what your "real" names or addresses are.... so if you're interested, feel free to start this amongst your "local" circle of friends.)
I'm looking forward to getting my 36 books!
Happy Summer reading!
