Hello, 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--or, if you already know your partners, share a little update or fun tidbit about what you've been up to lately.

(OPTIONAL) suggested topics you might use or ignore:

📚 September has been designated "Be Kind to Editors and Writers Month." Tell us about an experience you had meeting or writing to a writer/editor.

📚 The last week of September is Banned Books Week! Tell us about a banned book you read recently, or one that you recommend.

📚 Roald Dahl's (author of Matilda and other beloved children's stories) birthday is September 13 and Hermione Granger's birthday is September 19! Do you have a favorite literary bookworm character?

📚 a book of any kind that you would recommend (or NOT recommend)


📖 International, electronic swap - by (bcc) email or swap-bot direct message

📖 You will have up to 3 partners (depending on number of participants signed up).

📖 Introduce yourself--this can be very brief, as little or as much as you'd like to share! (If this isn't your first BYOB "meeting," a brief sentence what you've been up to is fine)

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

📖 Include swap name and username

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

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