BOOK SWAP AT THE ANNUAL CATI CONFERENCE:

We’re trying something new this year—a Book Swap! Many of you know that Freek Lankhof of InTrans Books has retired and will no longer be selling books at our conference (or any other conference). So, we decided to try a Book Swap.

Clean out your bookshelves—bring books to the conference that you’re ready to pass on, and pick up some new (used) books. Bring dictionaries, books about language, books in foreign languages, books you think people in our industry would like to read, magazines, other media—non-fiction and fiction welcome.

We’ll have a table at the conference where you can leave your contributions and browse through the offerings. All free!

Everyone must have at least one dictionary they’re not using anymore. This is your chance to swap it for something else. All leftover books will be donated to a good cause (friends of the library or other).
