Welcome to our fourth book exchange meet-up, this time in the ever-trendy Alpha Beta Coffee Club in Jiyugaoka. This is a casual meet up with the spirit of sharing/recycling for exchanging and talking about books you love/hate/never-read-but-should-have-and-now-the-guilt-is-too-much. ABC sells excellent coffee and Japanese craft beers, so grab a drink, peruse the books and head home with something new to read.
Please bring at least one book to exchange/give away and remember that all books must be in English. There’s no other criteria, fiction, non-fiction, educational are all fine.
If you would like to attend, please sign up on the doorkeeper link below, and if you can’t come, then remember to cancel your spot for someone else!
