Girly Book Swap! (Bring out the Cosmo collection!)

  • Aug 25, 2012 · 11:00 AM
  • I have done this with a few girlfriends and it was really fun! We also had it on our Meetup calendar once (about a year ago), but it didn't happen... Let's try again, because this could be great... Of course, only for those who are into the kind of books we will be swapping! :-D

  • Take a look at your bookshelf and only bring books that make your boyfriend roll his eyes!

  • If it's about celebs, dieting, fashion or sex...

  • If it was published by Cosmo, Oprah or Dr. Phil...

  • If it has a pink cover, heart, or Hello Kitty on it...

  • If it qualifies as chick lit and/or was written by one of today's hot new female writers (like Sophie Kinsella, Laura Weisberger, etc)
  • Then

  • bring

  • it!

  • :)

  • This day is all about swapping those delightful girly books, so bring your old ones and go home with some new thrills!

To participate:

  • 1. be in the first 10 to RSVP - Please don't take offense, but this meetup is only open to girls that I, or another organizer have met before!

    2. bring anywhere between 5-30 fun girly books (the more you bring, the more you'll swap, but we need to draw the line at 30!)

    3. bring a girly food, snack or drink - this could be anything from cupcakes to Pink Lemonade...

    And if you want to entertain us, pick your favorite chapters ahead of time, so you can share the hot photos of Robert Pattison or the wisdom of Paris with us! lol :)

    Let's swap!

    I just sent the address to all yes RSVPs. If you RSVP after this point, you need to email me directly. See you ladies soon! :)

    Girls, to reiterate, this event is not open to first time RSVPs. If you have not met me or one of the other organizers before, I will not send you my address, I'm sorry. Nothing personal against any of you, but I have no way of knowing if you really are the girl whose photo you posted, or some psycho guy... So please, only RSVP if you have been to an event with us before, otherwise I will have to move your RSVP to the "no" category. Thanks for understanding. :)

    Some girls emailed me to ask about the max. book limit. I was really only doing it because the space where we can put them is limited... But let's do this: bring no more than 30 books to swap and I will borrow an extra 6' long table so we can fit everything. :)

    Please note that this meetup is in my home, the location is West LA, but I will only send the address to those who RSVP yes, and I reserve the right to "un-invite" first time RSVP's. Sorry, but I've had too many problems with weirdos (guys, not you Ladies!) trying to stalk me via Meetup, so I am not comfortable posting my address here. I'd rather be safe than sorry. Thanks for understanding. See you girls soon! :)
