Coffee and book/magazine swap!

Get a great big up of coffee and come to Gilcrest park for morning coffee and a book/magazine swap!


Bring any books you no longer want and any magazines!  You'll get a  'book buck' for each one you bring.  So for example if you bring 10, you get to leave with 10!

We'll lay them out on a table for browsing. Hang out for an hour or so and enjoy the morning!

Walk the bridge after if you want, its great exercise, or just take off with your loot and start your day!

Bring a friend or two and they can join the swap. I will reschedule if it rains!

Gilcrest park is at 400 W Retta in PG.  There should be plenty of parking.  If there isn't, then park at the hotel and walk over.

    Very nice to meet women who are into sharing. Reconnected with some and met some new ladies. Leftover magazines/books were donated to the Kiwanis Thrift Store in Cape Coral and they were very happy to receive them.
