Bookmark exchange?

I was thinking for the holidays, we might try a bookmark exchange. Anyone game? Inexpensive bookmarks only; no promotional bookmarks.

Would they be paper, cardboard, cloth?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I don't think they have to be of a certain material.

Sounds fun! Bookmarks are relevant to all of us here, and probably the easiest, lightest thing to post :)

Is anyone else up for this? I think it's a great idea.

When would they need to be shipped?

[quote=""Nefret""]When would they need to be shipped?[/quote]

If we're sending them by international Airmail, I'd say we have a couple of weeks max. for them still to arrive during the holiday season (depending on location of course).

So, I think we should see who else responds and set a deadline, say by end of the day Thursday 28 November worldwide, then compile a list of names like was done last year. I'm happy to do this on Friday, I'll even put the names in a hat and draw them randomly, and everyone can just send to the person who appears after them on the list (PM each other for addresses, etc).

How does that sound?
