Book swap! [Jun. 21st, 2008|09:50 pm]
Kake
[Tags|]

Time for another book swap. Please vote for your preferred dates in the poll below. Venue and time remain unchanged: our house, 7pm-10pm.

Standard blurb: You know bring and buy sales? Where you bring stuff you don’t want, and you buy stuff that other people don’t want, and the money goes to some good cause or other? Well, this is a bit like that, except without the money. Bring books you don’t want any more, and take away books that other people don’t want any more but you do. It's fine to take books away without bringing any, and it's fine to bring books without taking any away. There will be food; it will be buffet-style, enough to be your dinner, and it will be available throughout the evening. Vegans will be catered for by default, and other dietary restrictions on request (requesting is good; I like culinary challenges).


I would like to come, and the following dates would suit me:

Same as before; after work, specifically 7pm-10pm. Have edited the post to make this explicit.

No, I don't know about the book exchange; please tell me more.

I was there on Friday! They have a set of bookshelves which are take-a-book, bring-a-book. Donations of books also accepted.

http://www.56a.org.uk for all the various things they do there. Inc a food co-op, bike workshop, & anarchist/etc bookshop.

That's fine — I don't need advance notice of who's going to come, just wanted to get a general idea of which date would be best.

The venue is my house, which is why the address details are in a locked post. I don't mind friends-of-friends coming to things like this, but I'm not sure about random people who don't have any obvious connection to me. Do we have any mutual friends? If so, then I'd feel more comfortable about giving you my address. (I checked your livejournal profile, but you only seem to know one person on here; and also checked your Flickr profile, but could only see people I've exchanged a couple of words with on Flickr at most, but never met.)

Thanks for understanding :) I do like meeting new people, and I'm sure you're perfectly lovely, but you do see what I mean.

Do you ever go to any of the London Flickr meetups or anything like that? If so then do let me know and I'll try to come along.
