One of the winners of our recent G. Lalo giveaway mentioned she is a member of the League of Extraordinary Penpals, which I had never heard of before, so of course I had to go look it up!

Turns out, LEP (www.extraordinarypenpals.com) is a group of several hundred people all over the world who like to send snail-mail letters to each other. They have a monthly newsletter and active Facebook group in addition to their letter-writing adventures. Geeks, nerds and book lovers are especially encouraged to join!

LEP was started by Julie, who also has a blog called Penpal of the Week (www.penpaloftheweek.com), featuring interviews of penpals from all over the world.

What a neat way to get to know people from anywhere in the world!

Are you a member of a penpal group?
