Book Swap Edinburgh Pages
Welcome! We are a small but social group of individuals all linked by a mutual desire to 'set free' our bookshelves and leave their contents scattered around for friends and strangers to find.
What - are you mad?????? Why on earth would any sane individual who loves literature just give it all away? It's just not the normal thing to do...
Because we like turning the whole world into a library! (And because our bookshelves are already so full that the occupants of the flat below have started to complain about the bulge in their ceiling...) Through registering with the official website
, members can track their old books around the globe and find out what others have thought of them. They can be 'wild released' in random places or given directly to friends and acquaintances met on the internet or through meetups like ours.
Yes, we are a community that is passionate about reading and love to try new things. Every month we meet and chat whilst swopping books around a large table, recommending what we have read to others there. There is no limit to the number of texts you can bring or take away with you. The atmosphere is very relaxed and it's a great place to make new friends in Edinburgh. The best way to start out is by registering at
, but if you're not sure, just come along to one of our events and we can explain everything there.
