Last week was the biannual Friends of the Library book sale in Gainesville, Florida, one of the largest used book sales in the nation. Since I will be graduating and moving away, this was probably the last time I’ll be able to attend this event, at least for some time. *holds back tears* But I did bring back quite a haul this year:
- 20 scifi/fantasy novels
- 8 YA books
- 5 David Sedaris books
- 3 mystery/horror/thriller
- 4 lit/lit fic
All in all, I bought 40 books for about $80, averaging to about $2 per book. Not a bad year, though it’s more than I’ve ever spent at one of these sales and, for the first time, I didn’t buy anything from the Collector’s Corner. (Like I’ve mentioned before, you can buy 40 books for $10 at one of these events, but I tend to go for the newer, higher priced books.)
For bibliophiles, the FOL book sale is a magical experience that makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I’m glad I was able to make my last one special.
So, any other used book store fans out there? Got any good deals lately? Anything in one these piles you think I should read next? 😀 Let me know in the comments!
