The Guardian Bookswap

19 Sep

I took part in the Guardian Bookswap this weekend.

The Bookswap is a lovely little idea: you stick a note in a book saying ‘this book now belongs to you’ and then leave it somewhere to be found, uploading a picture of where you left the book to a Flickr map on the Guardian website:

The book I donated to the swap was The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde, with a recommendation to try Dorian by Will Self. I couldn’t bear to give that one away.

I’m yet to find a book, so if you’ve left one somewhere, leave me a clue in the comments so I can go on a literary treasure hunt…
