Hi, Delph -
I think this book swap is a rejoiceable idea. I had never heard of it before, but now I've read the article.
Ach, no one is doing that sort of thing over here (at least not that I know of).
I believe the Written Word should get out & about. Circulate, meet new people, breathe new atmospheres, the lot.
Was your book picked up from its arty lair?
I wish you all the best with it.
