English book swap at McGees tonight @ 8:00

Hi Folks,

I know I said 7:00pm for the book swap tonight Nov 8th, but I have to change that to 8:00.

So the books I am bringing to swap are:

The Agony and the Ecstasy (bet seller about Michelangelo) by Irving Stone
Fall of the Giants by Ken Follet
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and DAvid Oliver Relin
The Girl who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by Steig Larsson
Something Blue by Emily Giffin

I am hoping to get some good mysteries, who don its, or comedy

Cheers
Lauren

Re: English book swap at McGees Nov 22nd @ 8:00

Hi All,

Do you want to try for Nov 22nd for a book swap? I am down to reading the ingredients on the side of the cereal box

I will bring the same list of books as posted earlier.

Maybe we can make this a monthly book swap ...

Cheers
Lauren

Have you tried here www.buecher-brocky.ch ?

I know when I first came over here I thought I was going to be paying a fortune to buy brand new books and then I found Brockis...

Between Brockis and the library in Baden, there's not a lot of housework gets done in our house

22nd would likely suit me too, unless something comes up with work as I am hoping.
Although what if nobody likes my books?

Re: English book swap at McGees tonight @ 8:00

Apologies kirley10 for not replying sooner to your pm, but here is a reply to this thread and your pm. (I had to wait until today as I had some things to check out today to see if 22nd was ok.). Unfortunately I can't make it on the 22nd. Until the end of the year, I can only do Fridays evenings and Saturday's.

If you have another swap on one of these days I'd like to join if that's ok.

-M

Re: English book swap at McGees 1:00 Dec 4th

Hi Folks,

I received a few PMs suggesting Sunday Dec 4th at McGees at 1:00.
Sounds like a good idea for a Sunday.

Please PM me if you think you will be able to make it.


The books I am bringing to swap are:

The Agony and the Ecstasy (bet seller about Michelangelo) by Irving Stone
Fall of the Giants by Ken Follet
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and DAvid Oliver Relin
The Girl who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by Steig Larsson
Something Blue by Emily Giffin
and some random ones I have picked up recently

I am hoping to get some good mysteries, who don its, or comedy

Cheers
Lauren
