I just came from our local library's annual book sale (I work right across from the main branch downtown). It was madhouse, like a mall at Xmas time. Today is the last day and they have deal where you can buy a bag(s) for $5 and fill it with books. I came away with two bags full of mysteries and true crime, along with several cookbooks. I can't wait to get home and start reading!

What a wonderful day!

I remember a used book store that used to sell books by the pound. It was a great thing.

Nothing like sitting down with a good book! I love book sales too, but I don't usually attend the ones at the library because they are the recipients of any books that I read, so if I bought them from them, I'd have no where to take the ones I've read, hehe

I love a good mystery book. Can you share some of the authors and titles? Also, what kind of cook books? General or special nationality ones?

Very good deal!! Now how long will it take you to read these???
I attend the AAUW annual book sale in October. I go the 1st day when they are $1/book. The last day they are $5/bag but what is left I've either read, don't want to read or Harlequin Romance books!!

I just love library booksales! I went to one in March or April and came back with a bunch. I wish I lived closer to the library as well

I have never been to a library book sale, but we have a great book exchange here. You get credits based on the cover price of the ones you bring in to trade. I buy any books with a high cover price I can find at yard sales, even if I won't read them. Then I trade them in for books I want.

I can't resist books! The funny thing is, I work in a library, and STILL can't get enough of 'em! In fact, after dinner tonight, H and I are going to have a kinky, wild evening: sitting in the Barnes & Noble cafe, sipping tea, and perusing books...I know, we're pathetic...

Love a good booksale!!!
