BOOK EXCHANGE PARTY

  • Mojito Latin Cuisine & Bar

    CityPlace, 700 S Rosemary Ave (2nd Floor), West Palm Beach, FL (map)

    26.707502 -80.056610

  • Please bring a new or used gift-wrapped book.

  •       RSVP's FOR THIS MEET UP CLOSE MONDAY DEC 5

    The exchange will be a Yankee Swap, known as a White Elephant Party.

    It not a spiritual gathering; however, given the time of the year, we may be surrounded by music or displays of religious or spiritual symbols. 

    You are welcome to giftwrap your book in any way you please, whatever you have handy. Christmas paper, Hanukkah paper, brown paper bag, birthday paper. We know it’s all about the ribbon, anyway.

    Do not put a “from” tag on the gift.

    Unlike a true white elephant party, it is not about the ugliest book (although that would be funny), it's about a book you want to give.

    A book is a gift you can open again and again.
     ~ Garrison Keillor


    HOW IT WORKS

    Draw numbers to determine swap order.

    The first person chooses a wrapped book opens it and shows it.

    Person 2 picks a wrapped book or steals an unwrapped book.

    A member who has her book stolen gets to either steal a book from someone else or chooses a wrapped book.

    You must wait at least one round before stealing back a gift that was once in your possession, so you may not immediately steal back a book that was stolen from you. One can imagine how that would go. 

    No gift tags please. Shhhhh ….. If time allows, we will try to guess the giver’s identity.

    Make a new friend.

    You are welcome to exchange a book that you already own. I chose to order a book for the book swap. I own very few books since I've been reading off a kindle for some time.

    I was hoping to find a group like this in the WPB area. Since I don't know anyone yet. I think that I'll wait until January to start. Enjoy your holiday party.
