My local library was having a book sale this weekend. I went yesterday as I had some DVDs on reserve that needed to be picked up, and I browsed through the books. I bought 3 hardcovers - 2 for myself and 1 as a gift for friend who just had major surgery.
I went back today - last day of the sale - when they have their bag sale. They give you a paper grocery bag and everything you can fit into it is $5. I have several authors where I have their stuff in hard cover, so I found 3 books to put in my collections. Overall, I bought 20 adult fiction (all hardcover or the large softcovers - no trade paperbacks) and 10 kids books. Yay!!
The ones I bought on Saturday were my must haves - I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make it back on Sunday, so I didn't want to risk not getting those.
Plus my money went towards supporting my local library, which I love and use weekly. Most of the adult fiction I bought I will either pass on to friends or donate back to the library for future sales.
