Tidy up your bookshelf to benefit others via the ReadysetDC Book Swap at the Dunes Gallery (1402 Meridian Place NW), being held Wednesday, Nov. 30 from 7 to 11 p.m.

This book swap with a twist -- cohosted by Read's Clothing Project and Politics & Prose -- will accept textbooks, nonfiction, novels, French dictionaries... well, you get the point... to charity. Of course, you can also participate in the traditional book swap and gain new reading material yourself.

With the donation of one gently used book at the door, you'll gain free entry to the event, featuring shop ops and the chance to win prizes.

Shop Read's Clothing Project's classic vintage inspired threads, meet local illustrator Elizabeth Graeber, whose book "An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails" is featured, and enter to win a $50 gift certificate to Politics & Prose.

The attendee who donates the most books will win a Politics & Prose tote bag. All books will be donated to Books for Africa, a nonprofit that's working to put a stop to literary deprivation in Africa.
