On Saturday, we went along to the all-day book swap, hosted by West Ealing neighbours hosted as part of the West Ealing Family Day. We started the day with over 90 books, generously donated by locals, and gave away more than half!
This book swap was run in conjunction with the West Ealing Station book swap which is still going strong. Highlights included:
- Encouraging people to take books for free, and then drop one off later at West Ealing Station.
- Helping someone with home-DIY problems with a book on basic plumbing.
- Handing out lots of kids books – especially some that would be helpful with school.
- Seeing people who had taken books earlier bring a whole bunch back to swap.
People in West London are very keen on book swapping – we will be planning more events in the area to keep up the interest!
