Book Swap & Scrabble Social

Is everybody ready for a meetup without homework? Then you will definitely want to come on out to our first ever Book Swap & Scrabble Social! That's right there is no reading required. We are just going to get together and enjoy each other's company. Part I> If you are able, please bring a Scrabble board and/or dictionary (to check words). If you have any other word-related games like Boggle, feel free to bring that along also. I will bring my Scrabble board, but we will definitely need more people to bring games. Closer to the event, I will determine how many boards are needed to keep everyone occupied and solicit members' help if we do not have enough. Part II> Participating in a book swap is a great way to declutter and to obtain some great new books. Bring as few or as many as you like. When I take attendance at the event, I will denote how many you have brought and you will take that number home with you. Please for whichever books you bring, stick a piece of paper in/on them categorizing them into one of the following genres: -NON-FICTION -SELF-HELP/ HOW-TO -CLASSIC -CHICK LIT/ ROMANCE -DETECTIVE/ LEGAL -POETRY -SCI-FI/ FANTASY -OTHER That way we can group similar books together and make it easier for people to find what they want. I am really looking forward to this event and I hope you are too! See you there!

    This was a cool idea. It's nice to think that some good books will be enjoyed by like-minded readers.

    Rather than Scrabble, I enjoyed a rousing game of Book Lovers' Trivial Pursuit. This has inspired me to write a blog post entitled "Why do people play Trivial Pursuit?!". Will post a link once it's up on annarbor.com. Hope to see some of the new people come to a discussion sometime. We will probably do another event like this again soon :-D

    The book swap was not a lending library. It was a one for one book swap. The scrabble was lots of fun. Almost everyone was new and may come back to discuss books. There may be an opportunity for a scrabble only meetup.
