In conjunction with The Reader's Books-issue that is out on Thursday, Martha, the books editor has put together another BOOK SWAP, where you can trade up to 15 books, where I will be DJ-ing from 5:30-6:30 and then hitting the 15 book swap limit hard while collecting my canvas tote. Thoughts of new books makes me sweat. Okay:
The Reader Book Swap returns Thursday, November 2, to the Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie, from 5:30 to 9:30 PM. (Blue Line California or Logan stop)
As ever, it's all free. Bring as many as 15 books, take as many as 15 books. Pick up a copy of the fall books issue, hot off the presses. Win fabulous door prizes. Hang out and have a beer (ok, that part's not free).
New this time around: free Reader tote bags to the first 200 swappers. Plus DJ sets by from Reader contributors Jessica Hopper, Peter Margasak, Monica Kendrick, and Liz Armstrong.
*the fine print: no dusty, dirty, torn, or otherwise sorry-ass books please, and no periodicals, encyclopedias, or technical, legal, or medical-information books. leftovers to be donated to local charities.
