Book swapping in London, Other book swaps

More bookswaps – this time in South London!

While it’s our aim here at Books for London to get books into London’s tube and train stations, we’re also dead keen on other book swap initiatives as well.

In our recent travels around the Interwebs, we’ve seen two more London-based swaps – this time South of the river.

The Rocketvan Boxshop Book Swap

Rocketvan is a removal and delivery firm that also sells cardboard boxes and other stuff do with storage. Last year, they set up a bookswap shelf outside their shop under a railway arch on Union Street. Looks neat eh?

Southwark Street book exchange

Launched in May by a communications company, this bookswap shelf is close to the very good Menier Chocolate Factory theatre. This bookswap also encourages readers to write a short review of the books by way of a special insert – what a great idea!

It seems like South London is the place to be for bookswapping! Let us know if you spot any more bookswaps in South London, or anywhere else…


One thought on “More bookswaps – this time in South London!

  1. The second one had gone last time I visited the Menier – succumbed to building works I think.
