Find new reads at the Stratford Book Swap

16:30 22 January 2013

Swap books with fellow passengers at Stratford Station as part of a new London-wide scheme.

The transport hub has become the first venue in east London for Books for London’s sharing programme to get people reading new books, saving money, and preventing books ending up in landfill.

All books, old and new, in any language, style, or age range are welcome in the main tunnel under the station next to the kiosk and by the stairs to platform five (Central Line, westbound).

Get involved by visiting www.booksforlondon.org.uk or email stratfordbookswap@gmail.com for more information.
