I want to let everyone know that there will be a book swap table at the Emporium during the Jane Austen Birthday Luncheon on December 14. Bring books you want to pass on to other Jane-ites to the dinner, if you are attending. If you have books that you want to donate but are not attending, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on where you live, I may be able to pick them up.
