Chicklit Bookswap in London
I really wasn't kidding about already having an overflowing box of proof copies:|
For those of you who are newish to the community and are wondering what exactly this bookswap business entails, don't worry! It is totally fun! And here is a handy guide that pisica wrote for last year. We may call it a bookswap, but all kinds of swapsies are totally fair game - DVDs, CDs, comics, bizarre unwanted Christmas presents. If you can carry it, you can bring it. It is predominantly books though - we're purists at heart.
And if you don't have anything to swap, don't worry! You can totally still come and take things away with you. We ALWAYS end up with tons of great stuff left over. (Also some utterly rubbish stuff, but that is why we take all the leftovers to the Oxfam bookshop - even they can probably find somebody who wants to buy a complete history of the Conservative party. Maybe)
So yeah, Bookswap 2009 is almost upon us (FEBRUARY 28TH), and I thought it was time we got on with the very small amount of planning that this involves. Basically, I just need a rough idea of numbers, so that I can make sure there are enough sandwiches and cheesy puffs to go around. Hence, a handy poll:
Are You Coming?
I am totally for sure coming
I may be coming, but there is stuff going on in my life that might get in the way, and I'll have to get back to you
I CAN'T COME. Instead I will sit at home and weep bitter bookswapless tears
Fussy in a very specific way that I will detail in the comments
In possession of some really wacky food allergies
I will post my address and directions to my flat a bit nearer the time. Don't worry though, it's totally easy to get to. All you need is a cursory knowledge of the London tube and the ability to differentiate right from left.
Alrighty then! See you all in a month!
