Book Bring and Buy (without the buying part).

I had a good idea, and uon said I should do it, and rjw1 didn’t actually say not to do it, so I’m going to do it.

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’ll be at my lovely amazing fantastic new house (address), on a weeknight other than Tuesday.

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

Oh, yes, and:

I would come, but London’s a bit far away.

One of those dates clashes with something that a lot of your friends are going to; I’ll comment to tell you what.

(katyha did something sort of similar-ish to this before Christmas, but that was more on the “bring things you think other people will like” side — with this one, I don’t mind at all if you bring books that you don’t think anyone in their right mind would want, since I’m happy to take charge of freecycling (and recycling if necessary) the leftovers.)
