Bring a book, take a book, meet new friends and have fun

How does it work? Bring a book that you no longer want and take a new book home with you. Bring a few, take a few. Oh, and have a drink, a glass of wine and maybe a bite to eat while you're at it.

This is a fun, informal event. You are welcome to brings guests with books too.

    Leslie,
    Coming in from the North--there is a big traffic jam. I will have to miss this one. I will try to make the next one.

    It's a delightful way to get together with people who love reading and having conversation about the things that come up through books they've enjoyed. It was a lovely group of people tonight, and we all had a great time.

      Thanks Leslie! I'm okay. I hurt my back pretty badly stupidly moving furniture a few weeks ago and am having a hard time pulling out from it. I really wanted to come but the closer it gets the less my back wants to move from ice packs. Books ready to go; I will be at the next one for sure! Cheers, Patricia

    Darn!!! I just found out today about something I can't get out of - at the same time as the book meeting. Will be a the upcoming brunch, though. Have a great evening tomorrow.

    Met my "new best friend" last time and had a great time chatting about books - one of my favorite things!

    Hi Leslie - I have to bail, I'm bummed. You know I'm training for a century and I've been on my bike all weekend and I'm pooped. I'll try to make it next month. My event is in Sept. and once it's over, I'll be able to be more social!

      Just got back in town... Sorry you will miss this Book swap. I think it is going to be a small group this time. Best of luck to you re: the Century. I admire your ambition and energy, for sure. I hope you're well and look forward to seeing you whenever .... Best....

      July 10, 2013

  • Leslie R.

    It'll be great to see everyone for the book swap. I'll be announcing the next brunch club pretty soon too. I think it'll be the Two Bird this time.... for something entirely different.
    'Til then...... enjoy!!
