Book Lovers Monthly Book Swap & Gab Session

Bring one or more books that you have read and swap with others for ones you haven't read.

If you don't have a book to trade, just come and enjoy the lively book-related conversation and excellent food at La Madeleine's. Go to La Madeleine's website to view the menu.


La Madeleine's offers scrumptious baked goods, french food, espresso, wine, beer, desserts, and all kinds of yummy things.


We have reserved the private dining room in the back.

      Trudy, I tried to change it on my end, but that didn't work. However, I think this will -- instead of trying to edit your profile, go to the "Account" menu at the top, and click on "General." I think there it will let you change to just "trudy."

      I didn't attend this meetup, but I have attended a couple of others and think this is a brilliant idea. The first meetup I was frantically trying to jot down notes about the books mentioned.

    What kinds of books do ya'll like to read?

      Dawna - Our group reads a wide variety of books, from mysteries to science fiction, nonfiction to historical novels. One thing that is a steady constant, though, seems to be paranormal fiction. There always seem to be some fans of that kind of book.
