True, it was my idea, so I'm biased. But I think it's a damn good idea: a happy hour/swap meet for book lovers. It works like this: Bring two good books for your admission fee. Once you're in, buy a drink, browse tables of books, talk with fellow members of the reading public, and pick one new-to-you book to bring home. It's a nerdy Thunderdome, except everybody leaves with a new book to love, and all the extra books will be donated to Friends of the Library for its twice-a-year book sale, which means everybody wins!
