How it works
Receiving the book
There is no plan or a pre-determined route! You simply can't deliberately request the book: the current Sketchnoter, who host the book, have the right to decide to whom to send the book. You can, of course, get in contact to the current Sketchnoter suggesting your name for the next hop. You can always get in contact with me.
Sending the book to the next Sketchnoter
Delivery costs are on the current host of the book. This book is a bit heavy and, depending on the distance it needs to travel, delivery can be rather expensive. In case you have trouble in affording the delivery cost for the travel you planned, please ask the Sketchnote Army community (or me) to find a Sketchnoter closer to you.
Keep the book traveling
Please, do not hold the book more than 1 week!!! If you have problems with the delivery, you can't figure out to whom to send the book or whatever else PLEASE get in touch with me as soon as possible. Furthermore please make sure that the next Sketchnoter actually want to receive the book.
Share what you do with the book
This is important to track the book in its trip. The sharing platform of choice is Twitter and you need to mention @xLontrax (me) or @SketchnoteArmy, this allow me to gather all the book's related tweets in a collection you can find following on this webpage. If you do not have a Twitter account please keep me informed about all the book's activity using this Contact Form: I'll post everything for you. Here are the best practices:
- Always mention @xLontrax (me) or @SketchnoteArmy in the posts related to the book: this allow me to keep the track more easily
- Always use #SABookjourney hashtag in the posts related to the book: this allow me and the community to follow the book's story
