  • Book Swap in December

    Book swapping

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Book swapping or book exchange is the practice of a swap of books between one person and another. Practiced among book groups, friends and colleagues at work, it provides an inexpensive way for people to exchange books, find out about new books and obtain a new book to read without having to pay. Because swaps occur between individuals, without central distribution or warehousing, and without the copyright owner making a profit, the practice has been compared to peer-to-peer (P2P) systems such as BitTorrent[1] — except that hard-copy original analog objects are exchanged.


    Sounds good. Let’s bring books to swap to all our December meetings. I’ll have at least 5 trades at each show. Impress me by bringing Thousand Autumns by David Mitchell or others on my wish list.

    I’ll think we’ll bring our books up to the stage during the pre-show social happy hour and leave with new books.

    Should be fun and free. Thanks.
