Founders of MerciBOOKoup

Imagined by two booklovers, MerciBOOKoup aims to develop access to culture, promote a circular economy, save resources (trees, water, energy, €), while creating social links. In order to do this, MerciBOOKoup organizes book swapping parties and is planning to place book boxes within Paris and other cities. You will be able to find these boxes at public locations and participating ventures to swap your book for any other book you like. All for free. Moreover, soon MerciBOOKoup will offer an online platform for book exchanges between individuals.

Check out our events page about when and where to join our next swapping party and send up for our monthly newsletter to receive all the updates!

I'm a dreamer, a reader and a writer but mostly a human. Because of all these interests, it is important to me to share my reading taste with other people.
