I’ve written a few posts about my little hobby with Postcrossing (details here and here if you want them) and I thought I’d give you an update. Since I started in November last year I’ve sent 79 postcards around the world (367,700 miles) and received 70 (332,568 miles). In the spring I added a request to my profile for the people sending me cards, asking them to add their favorite book or movie and, to date, 29 have added one or more favorites. I love receiving the postcards in the mail, but it’s extra fun when they share books and movies with me too! Here are the 29 that sent me titles
I thought some of you might like to see some of the results by country. The movie Cloud Atlas made the list twice (and the book once), and Stephen King and Haruki Murakami both show up twice. Danielle from the Netherlands hopes to be a writer someday and Nic from Great Britain is a children’s picture book editor.
The list (some countries have more than one contributor)
movie-Toy Story 3
book-Alive by Piers Paul Read
book-Under the Dome by Stephen King
book-The Razor’s Edge by Somerset Maughan
movie-Life of Pi
book-The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, 50 Shades trilogy by EL James, author Jules Verne
book-CivilWarLand in Bad Decline by George Saunders, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Life of Pi by Yann Martel
movie-Marathon Man, My Family & Other Animals, Sweet November, The Wizard of Oz, The Producers, Dr. Strangelove, Sound of Music, Fried Green Tomatoes, actor Tom Hanks, actress Meryl Streep, Pixar movies
