book swap in zurich?

hi,

just looking to see if theres any interest out there in zurich for some book swapping?

ive got the following titles (all non-fiction, mostly history/geo-political stuff, bought in last few months, like new) to swap for similar titles if anyone's interested:

- 'Hot, flat and crowded': Thomas Friedman'
- 'The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order': Parag Khanna
- 'Aid and other dirty business': Giles Bolton
- 'Failed States': Noam Chomsky
- 'Hegemony or survival': Noam Chomsky
- 'Immigrants: Your country needs them': Phillippe Legrain
- 'Nuclear Showdown'
- 'Latin America after neo-liberalisation'
- 'History of the middle east'

so on the off chance anyone has similar taste in reading(!) and lives in zurich or nearby please give me a message.

cheers,

joel
