Let’s Barter India and Truly Madly, with Jaipur Beat as their digital media partners, came together to bring an interesting and unique event Book Barter Social. The event, organized on June 18, at Jaipur Marriott, was open for all Jaipurites. The main idea behind this extraordinary event was not only to barter books, but to meet book-lovers from all around the city, interact and share the love of books with one another and barter thoughts. Quite unique 🙂
After attaining grand success in Delhi, Let’s Barter India decided to bring an event for all the hidden nerds and book-lovers of Pink City and gave them a chance to barter their books and thoughts with people of their own kind.
The event started at 7 p.m. with people coming with some of the best books ever written, leaving them for others to read, discuss and socialize over beer and snacks. And how would you feel if you come across a person, sitting and reading your favorite book, willing to discuss it with you? Only a true Kitabi-keeda would understand the feeling that Book Barter Social gave rise to inside many. As they say, a lot can happen over books and beer 😉 Jaipurites were seen having the time of their life while spending time with book-nerds having same interest like theirs.
And the fun doesn’t end here. A social event is incomplete without some masti and no Jaipurite would ever say no to it ;). To make the evening all the more fun and groovy, activities like arm wrestling and beer race were also organized for our lovely book-lovers. Okay! Gone are those days when people used to call readers boring. They surely knew how to enjoy and they proved it by winning 😉
“We aim to bring people close by this barter system. And nothing is better than books because you not only share your book, you share the thoughts too. And it gives book-aficionados a platform to come forward and meet people whom they have never met before”, quoted Pooja Bhayana, CEO of Let’s Barter India when asked about the main reason behind the idea of the event. Adding further to it, she said,” We have received an overwhelming response from Jaipur. We’re hoping to return with some similar events very soon.”
Along with books, some exciting gifts were in store too. The nerds of Jaipur surely loved the event since they got to take the books home for free! An opportunity a book-lover would never miss 😉
