If you like BOOKS...

WHAT AN EVENT!

The Adoxist Society is holding its monthly book swap-meet on Saturday, December 16th, 2PM to 3:30PM at Seattle's Best coffee shop downtown.

This monthly book swap gives English speakers in Daegu a chance to exchange books, and talk about literature and other stuff, as well as meet new people.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Bring any old books you no longer need or want to read!

Straight-swap them for ones you want--ONE-FOR-ONE. Or buy your way in with redeemable Adoxist vouchers, ONE-FOR-ONE.

HUNDREDS of titles are available!

THE ORGANISER...

The Adoxist society is a literary society made up of foreigners in Daegu who like books and don't mind people!

The Adoxist Society is NOT a religious organisation.

The swap-meets are usually held last Saturday of every month, but normally much earlier in the month of December. Exceptions to this will be made known here.

Come and check it out Saturday December 16th from 2PM to 3:30PM.

FROM NOW ON the book swaps will alternate Saturdays and Sundays...normally. So, the January swap will likely be on a Sunday.

BOOKS: THE FEMALE EUNUCH by GERMAINE GREER

ADOXIST-STAMPED BOOKS
This book demonstrates to us that 1970, when this book was written, is indeed another country. A country where men are giant, hairy, repulsive baboons. So things have clearly gone backwards, since.

Somewhere out there, there's a copy of this book with our stamp on it. If you happen across it, feel free to leave a message below!

COUNT ALL THE WAY TO TWENTY

DIVERSIONS

Count all the way to twenty...with Sesame Street! With the aid of a funky little man in a turban, and some really rather singular Heath Robinson contraptions. Seriously, this will bring back memories!
