Book Swap

Spring is the air!  That means spring clean outs, so I will be hosting a book swap afternoon at my place from 1.30pm - 3.30pm on Saturday 5th October.

How it works:  Bring along your unwanted, unloved* books; add them to the collection then start browsing for your replacement books; you bring 1 book, you take 1 book.... bring 2 books, you take 2 books... and so on; all books left at the end of the event will be donated.

They don't have to be only fiction either!  Non-fiction, cooking, travel, children's and reference books are all worthwhile to someone.

If you cannot make the Book Swap but would still like to donate books you no longer want, bring them along to September's Book Club Meeting.


*Unloved - as in you didn't like the book but someone else might, not as in your dog loved it as a chew toy!  aka. all books must be in reasonable condition.

    Hi ladies,

    A few tips for getting here:
    - I'm in apartment complex so you will have to park on either Huckle Street or North Beach Drive
    - Street number is not easy to see but it is the red brick complex on the corner of the above two streets
    - My place #11 is upstairs

    I hadn't planned alcohol or snacks for this event, but you are welcome to bring your own.

    The Book Swap will have to end strictly at 3.30pm as I have a ball at Crown tonight to get to. Can't go looking like Cinderella's ugly sisters!!!

    Looking forward to seeing you this afternoon if you can still make it, even just for 30mins!

    I may or may not be able to make it. I have to arrange someone dropping of a motorcycle and not sure what time they are coming. I hope to get there and meet some of you even for half an hour
