Book lovers converge to share their favorite reads and discover new literature.
Have you read something so good lately that you've been dying to tell someone about it? Are you looking for ways to socialize and have good discussions without the "reading assignment" pressure of a book club?
The Exchange is for you!
The Exchange was launched to bring folks together in the DMV and open our world to stories we might never have heard of otherwise.
We meet once or twice a month at a coffee shop, pub, bookstore, or other venue around Arlington to talk about the books we want share and get to know each other. The Exchange welcomes people from all walks of life; rude, stalker-ish, or discriminatory behavior is not tolerated.
How It Works:
1) Bring a book to swap at our next meetup (Please no family heirlooms or books you can't bear to part with! We do our best but we can't guarantee all books will be returned.)
2) Introduce yourself and tell us why you love the book.
3) Add the book to our Exchange for a white elephant style swap at the end of the night.
4) Bring back any book you borrow from the Exchange within 2 months.
5) Repeat! :)
**Any member who fails to return a book within 2 months may be removed from the group permanently, so please do your best to get books back to their owner.**
So go ahead, grab that book you've been dying to talk about - we're excited to meet you at our next event!
