Central Texas PaperbackSwap Meetup & Swap

  • Nov 7, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • Central Market Cafe

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! 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.

    You do, indeed, take them back home and bring them the next time. Sometimes we'll leave a book or two (the entire Meetup, not each of us) for someone else to pick up and read. On occasion, a member has volunteered to take any leftovers to a charitable organization or library.

    So after the meetup, what if no one wanted the books you brought? Do you just gather up your leftovers and take them back home?
