I love book sales. Big ones, small ones, library ones, ones that are being held in the local mall or in a thrift store; even ones that consist of only a handful of books in someone’s yard sale. And next week I will boldly go where I have never shopped for books before: the 7th annual Houston County Library Old Book Sale, which will be held at the state fair grounds in Perry, GA. Before you ask, I have wondered if I’m thinking clearly, using a tank of gas to potentially buy a few dollars worth of books. My only rationale is that part of the fun in book collecting is the hunt. Among of the 90,000 plus books they promise to have on hand may be some titles that will make my trip completely worthwhile. The Houston County Library Old Book Sale runs April 28-30. Visit them online or on Facebook for further details.
But you don’t have to travel to enjoy a great book sale; we have book sales too, right here in DeKalb County. And some of our branches have ongoing booksales that are open whenever the branch is open!
