Having personally hosted a few, I can attest that book swaps are a hell of a lot of fun. They combine four of the biggest book-lovers’ pleasures: (1) You get to show off your good reading tastes. (2) You get to judge everyone else’s reading tastes. (3) You get to talk to book-lovers. (4) Free books! The George & Dragon’s brand-new monthly book swap will only be as good as the books that are up for grabs, so bring some of your favorites, and help ’em find a new home.
