I want to thank all the people who thought up, organized, and worked at the Reader’s book swap at the Hideout [June 1]. It was an inspired event. Perfect for people who love books and “dive bars.” I finally had a chance to go to the cool little bar I always see as I take my shortcut to the Home Depot on North Avenue. I got lots of great books while finding good homes for my old ones, and I got to meet some of the people whose books I acquired!

I’m looking forward to your next book swap!

Thanks a million!
