Hey, readers! One of the things I miss from working at a library is the casual conversations we would share daily with the library visitors. It could be as simple as recognizing another fan of a genre, or learning about an author I wasn't familiar with, or discussing their on-going research as an aspiring writer---even these small interactions would add another level of meaning to the fluctuating content of the library bookshelves.

This is a Bring-Your-Own-Book Club, where folks can have a chance to connect with each other by sharing about whatever book they feel like talking about at the moment. It's meant to be as easy and accessible as possible, since we try to make everyone feel welcome at the library.

I may provide some suggested conversation topics, but they are totally optional. -- Participants should feel free to write a little bit about one book (no spoilers please), regardless of whether you finished it recently or a while ago, or whether you're still working your way through it--or even one that you aren't enjoying that much, or have been putting off!

And since I think of Swap-bot as a place for making connections and learning about others, I would also encourage participants to introduce themselves a little bit at the beginning of their email.

(OPTIONAL) suggested topics you might use or ignore:

πŸ“š a selection of poetry that you enjoyed, or perhaps a novel-in-verse?

πŸ“š a book review or book teaser written in haiku

πŸ“š a book that you would rather read instead of poetry, because some of us just prefer prose.

πŸ“š a book that was recommended to you by library staff (Happy Library Workers' Day, for those of you in the US)


πŸ“– International, electronic swap - by (bcc) email or swap-bot direct message

πŸ“– You will have up to 3 partners.

πŸ“– Introduce yourself (a sentence or two will do--as much or as little as you'd like to share)

πŸ“– Write at least a few sentences about one book--you can respond to one of the suggested prompts or not--up to you.

πŸ“– Include swap name

πŸ“– Don't forget to rate your partners :). If you received an on-time email or message that talks about a book, please give a 5.

Questions? Suggestions? Please feel free to DM me. Thank you and Happy Reading !
