Central Texas PaperbackSwap Meetup and Swap

  • January 8, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Since the first Wednesday this month is the 1st, New Year's Day, this month only our meetup will be in the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

Most of you know the drill, but we have some new folks, so here's it is:

Bring books that need a new home. Take books that want to come home with you. Eat good food at Central Market Cafe. Have great conversation ranging from books to anything else you can think of.

If you're looking for a particular book or books, post it to your RSVP in case someone has it on their bookshelf and might bring it with them especially for you.

We're not real regimented - the books are all thrown on the table(s), we all look them over, if we have a question we ask it and whoever brought the book can answer (and anyone else who read it might jump in, as well). First come first served is the order of the day - so don't be late! The swap usually takes about an hour, and by 7:00 most are leaving.

Since some of us have to drive a distance (I myself drive an hour each way to attend), and anything less than 4 attendees makes for a not-so-great swap, if we have fewer than four Yes RSVP's we will cancel. This also means if you RSVP Yes, please take it seriously and show up.

We will be at Central Market Cafe, but we might be downstairs, we might be upstairs, we might be outside - it all depends on how busy it is and where there's a large enough table or tables when I get there. Look for a table with a bunch of books on it (I usually bring 9 or 10 to get things started and as more people come, the stack can get pretty big) and the Meetup sign. If you get lost, call me at[masked] and I'll let you know where we are.

    I got both notices - the 1st and the 8th. I could not go the first - out of town company - and tomorrow - dealing with a post surgery dog. But both notices came to me.

      Thanks, Amanda! I went back and checked and I got no notice for the 1st, which didn't surprise me because I'd cancelled it! I'll let Meetup know about the snafu.

    Is the meet up still on for Wednesday?

      I sent out an email a while ago about that. If I can get a confirmed 4 attendees (including me), it will be. If I can't, I'll cancel and send out a notice and it'll be marked cancelled on here.

    I changed it back when I realized that the first Wednesday was New Year's Day, and sent out a notice at the same time (fortunately, Meetup reminds me to do that when I make changes!). Don't know why you didn't get it. Did Meetup have it on BOTH the 1st and the 8th? They didn't send me a reminder for the 1st, just the 8th. (Want to let them know if there was a mess-up with their system.)

    Er um, some of us met on the 1st! That's what was on Meetup for that day, and none of us had seen a revision to change the date!

    I will be unable to attend. But, hope it goes well for everyone.

    Looking forward to finally making it. I have 4 or 5 books to bring. I'd like to read the 3rd Hunger Games book if anyone has it and would like to share!

    I already have a small group of books to bring.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
