All, i saw the below event and wanted to be sure some people were aware of it. I am not going, but wanted share this info as some of you might be interested.
Bibliophiles and bluestockings, this event is just for you! OkCupid and world-famous bookstore The Strand have partnered up to present an awesome evening of book-swapping and wine drinking in The Strand's gorgeous Rare Books Room.
Bring books you're ready to pass along, and pick up some new-to-you reads. We'll have plenty of complimentary wine and Argos Tea on hand to facilitate the mingling, and some literary icebreakers to help you get to know other book-lovers. We hope you'll join us!
For the detail-oriented: bringing books is optional (though recommended!) and you're welcome to take books even if you don't bring any. The Strand will absorb any unpicked books, so you don't have to bring anything you don't want back home with you.
