Pass The Book: The Fourth

Maybe it's the first sightings of Christmas cards in the shops, maybe it's simply because I love getting post; but when I spotted a review of this book:


I just knew I had to include it in Pass The Book. We all like to write and we all enjoy those parcels which seem to fly backwards and forwards through blogland, so I thought some of you would love the ideas in this as much as I did. If you are already making art and sending it off to friends, maybe this one will really encourage you to push the envelope. (See what I did there?) because, of course, to get a letter, you have to send one first!


The usual rules apply. Leave a comment and I'll draw a name for the first adopter in a week's time. And don't forget that you can catch up with all the other books by checking here to see where they are.

Of course, if your name comes up, you know what I'm going to say don't you?...

...you've got mail!

Now that looks like the perfect book for Pass The Book :D and has seriously tempted me to join in - thanks Siân for the opportunity to join in - though I am a terrible book hoarder and not quite sure how you can bear to part with your lovely books! Do you keep track of their wanderings?

Jimjams said...

Scratch that question - I've just spotted the Pass The Book page!

Oooh, now that looks a lovely book to delve into! Count me in, please.

That looks like such a pretty book!!! Your comments about sundays made me chuckle, thats what I can't get over, only sort of 15-12 years ago, Sundays were so different, wonder what they'll be like in 20 years time. Everyone will probably be working 7 day weeks :(

Amanda said...

That looks such a great book. I did tentatively stamp a butterfly on the envelope of a friends birthday card I posted last week but this looks a whole lot more adventurous. I love the sentiment of No.1 'Thou shalt not feel the need for fancy pants supplies'.

Becky said...

What a brilliant-looking book! I am intrigued ... I love sending letters in handmade artsy envelopes so cam keen to see what else can go inside! I think you could be starting a whole craze here, Sian ...

Beverly said...

Oh if I don't win I will have to put this on my Christmas wishlist :) You might be interested in a class starting at the end of the month over at BigPictureClasses that's about letter writing (only $10usd)

Keira said...

Oh that looks like such a fun book!!! I love mail!

Donna said...

That looks fab! I once read an article about a lady who put crossword clues on her envelopes so that the postie had to work out the clues before it could be delivered! I love the idea of any kind of mail but an artistic envelope would be so much nicer :-)

helena said...

an inspired choice, it looks so much fun

scrapchick said...

Ohhh, this book looks fun! I always try to do something extra on the Christmas Card envelopes but not too many others - what a neat idea! Thanks for the chance!

Dear Horsey, please try and fix it so that it is me that wins this month's pass the book. I can offer carrots and apples and a box set of dvd of Ice Road Truckers.

Sian...this book looks the most scrummy yet....and if I don't get it passed to me....may actually have to go and buy it....or where's my xmas list gone??!!
Also apologies....there will be a delay in passing on the book I have....as my reading is rather slowed down at the moment!!
