December! Book Swap!

For December we will be doing something different! Instead of reading a particular book and discussing it we will be doing a book swap at our meeting. Bring in a copy of a book you have enjoyed ( I recommend utilizing some of our great used book stores to find one on the cheap).

When we do our introductions, we'll also give a very brief synopsis of the book we've brought. We'll then draw numbers and in order select a book we'd like to take home.

Let's' try to avoid books we've read as a lot of people may already have copies and have read them. If you don't want to purchase/donate a book you've enjoyed- you are still welcome to join us and listen for new book ideas-- obviously you will not get to take a book home with you.

I think this will be a lot of fun and will make it easier on the people who maybe don't have time to read a book before the holidays, but will also provide something for those who have extra time to read during travel/breaks/etc.

Please let me know if you have any questions. January's book will be: Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain -- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17286747-necessary-lies

    I was so sad to have missed this!! Virus was running rampant in our house. Can't wait to see everyone again in 2014.

      Is this like white elephant where we can then take the book somebody else is already or once it's chosen, it out?

      For the most part, in the interest of time, once it's picked, that's it. Otherwise we could be there all night. However, you guys are welcome to trade after. Everything depends on how many people actually show up.

    It's important for all our meetups but for this one especially, please make sure your RSVP is accurate - I'm going to try to do as much prep beforehand as possible and it would help me a lot! Thanks ladies- see you in a couple days :)
