Book Swap

Postby Kelly » Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:50 pm

Let's have a get together/book swap!

Saturday, Feb 5 feel free to stop by between 2-5pm to swap Books, DVDs, or just to visit with expats.

We're in Miraflores, on Av. Roca y Bolona near Av. Panama. Please respond to this message or send me a pm if you'd like to come, and I'll send the exact address/directions/phone number.

Y'all don't forget to bring any books or DVDs you might want to swap!

And by the way - if you don't have anything to swap, that's ok too - everyone is welcome to come and hang out for a while, drink some ice tea or coffee and eat cookies. If you're a newbie in Lima, this will be a great chance (like Comet mentioned in his thread) to get to talk to some folks that have been here for a while and can answer your questions.

Count me in!!! I have about a dozen spy novels (Vince Flynn and David Baldacci mostly....) that I have been looking to exchange for others of a similar genre.... I was hoping to hear about a book swap soon or I was going to have to start re-reading them! They are in great shape (new, used once or twice) and in need of a good place to hang their hats for awhile.

Kelly... please send the info so I can put the date on my calendar!

Thanks,

ZJ

I'll surely do it.

In the meantime, check your inbox, see if it's not filled 100% - it may need emptying before you can receive any more messages.

Just a reminder to everyone - the Book Swap is this Saturday from 2-5 - if you still need directions, send me a pm! if everyone that has contacted me shows up, it looks like we'll have a pretty good crowd.

And remember, if you don't have any books or dvds to swap, that's ok too, it'll be nice just to sit and chat for a while and get to know each other.

I hate it that I missed another book swap and great get-together - just because I was recovering from "el gripe." I was so hoping to meet some of you, but don't think you would have wanted to listen to me coughing! Next time, I hope.

I'm having another swap at the end of March - but if If you're out of reading material, I have a small library of 50-60 books that I use for the swaps, and I'd be more than happy to let you come by. Just send me a pm for the address.
