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.

    Great Meetup today! I love hearing about all the books and seeing new people. It was a bit noisy and hectic, but still a good venue.

    The event was enjoyable with readers providing information on the works of several authors of principally fiction. It's a good way to discover new authors and rediscover old favorites. I will be coming next month but earlier than 2 pm to socialize more.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the company! Late arrives rather distracting this time. Too much in and out. Room I bit small and poor acoustics. I know it is hard to find a meeting place sp grin and bear it. Book selections not as good as lat month but I did select two promising choices thank you for the effort of putting this together. Much appreciated!

    For all the new people, please be sure you go to the correct La Madeleine. There are several of them around town. Ours is the one nearest North Star Mall.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
