Toronto Book Swap, 1pm-6pm, The Central 603 Markham St, free

Leave a book, take a book! Or multiply that by 20! The ever-inventive Andrew Woodrow-Butcher (also a Broken Pencil reviewer) has created the much needed book swapping meet up of your dreams. Come leave some good condition, interesting books that you’re done with and find some new ones for your collection. A note: this is not an event to empty out your basement. People dumping large quantities of books will be turned away.
