Books glorious books – Urban Emporiums

Watery Coffee – We are sorry
3rd Sep 2009

We wanted Urban Coffee to be a bit of an oasis, a place to relax during the working day. So what better way than a bit of escapism in a book.

We created our very own book club, starting with a whole load of donated books and the pile or piles now just keep growing.

Rules of book club:

1- You don’t talk about book club
2- If you take a book you should leave a book

Then the team from bookcrossing asked if they could make this a bookcrossing point and we said of course – what’s bookcrossing?

Well “BookCrossing is earth-friendly, and gives you a way to share your books, clear your shelves, and conserve precious resources at the same time. Through our own unique method of recycling reads, BookCrossers give life to books. A book registered on BookCrossing is ready for adventure. Track the book’s journey around the world as it is passed on from person to person.”

So your book goes off on a journey and you can track where it is on the Internet – genius.

So if you have books you don’t want or fancy a new book then pop in and grab one, but remember don’t talk about book club!

    Thanks for mentioning BookCrossing! Look out for books with special labels for our September LUCIA charity release challenge – we're releasing books with women's roles in the titles to raise awareness of a small locally run charity that helps women in Ethiopia. Also look out for BookCrossing books all over Birmingham, the UK, the world…! The Birmingham BookCrossers can be found at Yahoo Group BCBirmingham and we're glad we have a lovely new BookCrossing Zone at UCC without having to do much persuading at all!
