Blind Book Swap and Beer!

The idea is taken from a friend's style of white elephant party and the "Blind Date with a Book" post floating around on facebook a few weeks ago.

Bring a wrapped book of any kind (used is more than acceptable!), and on the wrapped package write the GENRE and ONE SENTENCE DESCRIBING THE BOOK.

We'll then draw numbers and and choose books based on the descriptions alone. (Think any white elephant/yankee swap/whatever your regional name for gift swaps are.)

We'll enjoy Zeitgeist's beer selection while we swap some (hopefully) good books.

    Allright, this is a while ago but I finally got around to reading Siddhartha on my trip, whoever swapped this to me, thanks, it was quite an excellent read and a very interesting perspective on life.

    Ah, have to last-second cancel! I hate being that guy. Hopefully there will be more book-themed events soon.

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.
