The Kathmandu Book Swap wants you bookworms to come together to talk books, swap them, and drink a lot of coffee.
Take along at least one book that you’re willing to lend. All books get passed around, so you can talk about each of them. Best of 3 rock-paper-cissors decides who gets a particular book if two or more people want to borrow one book for this month. They’ll keep track of who borrows what so it will eventually come to you.
Books are expensive and some of them hard to find, so go share and find like-minded people bringing what they have to the study table
