Inspired by Pinterest, spurred on by twitter, I have put together Ottawa’s first (as far as I know) book swap.
The plan is this: Come to the Elmdale Tavern on July 31 between 2 and 5 pm bearing the books you’ve read, that you won’t read again, and end up just sitting on your bookshelf taking up space. Others will be bringing their books, and you will hopefully get to go home with something you’ve been wanting to read.
I have set up a Facebook event page here with invitations sent around to those I thought would be interested, but people can feel free to show up.
The people who have expressed interest in the book swap have varied interests in books – literature, non-fiction, fantasy, so I’m hoping everyone who comes will find something to take home.
