It's almost inevitable that at some point in your adult life one of your close friends will move away. And while it's easier than ever to stay in touch (e-mail, Facebook, etc.), being digitally connected isn't always the same.
If you and your faraway friend used to trade reading recommendations, a fun way to stay connected is to start sharing books. As you're reading a book make notes about your reactions on sticky notes and slip them in at the end of the related paragraph. Once you've finished the novel, pop it in the mail to your friend, and have her do the same with another title. That way you can "discuss" the books as you're reading them.
Read Staying in Touch for more ideas on how to keep connected with friends and family.
Do you have any fun traditions that help you stay in touch with friends and family who have moved away?
