Getting Ready for LetterMo 2019

I am bizzy-bizzy going through my stationery getting ready for February 2019’s Month of Letters.

If you are unaware of the initiative AND you love to send written correspondence through the postal service, please visit the official website LetterMo.com.

I’ve been participating since 2012 when author Mary Robinette Kowal started it as a way to encourage more pen to paper and enjoying connections via that medium. Sadly, my original account at the website has been lost and I had to re-sign up; thus I don’t have any of the same penpals from those early days but if you want to friend me there, just look for Care_BooksandPie.

In the meantime, I will share one of the books I am very excited to experience this 2019 that happens to be Ms. Kowal’s latest endeavor:

It looks awesome!  Anyone want to ReadAlong it with me in February? Just throwing it out there. Preparation, people; it’s all in the prep!  I have the audiobook queued up and waiting. As soon as I listen to Michelle Obama’s Becoming

OK, then. I’m back to prepping February birthday cards, stamping postcards, and deciding on my absolute must-write-to list… (Are YOU on that list? just know – one of the rules of Letter Mo is I must reply to any letter I receive.)

  1. I read The Calculating Stars last fall and then gave some copies away to high school and college age friends and relatives. I kept thinking I would write about it but never found the time.

  2. Happy New Year Care! Hope you’re year is off to a great start. Thank you for mentioning Lettermo. I’ve been trying to get back into mailing letters so this is perfect timing!

  3. You know how much I love writing letters, so I always want to participate. Then I know that I can barely pay my bills on time these days. A whole month devoted to letter writing seems impossible but SO. MUCH. FUN. And it is not like I don’t have the stationary. It would mean I could actually use my stationary. And my wax sealing kits. And stickers. And my oodles and oodles of stamps.
