It's no Mystery -- this is the time and place to get good deals on good books!

It was a dark and stormy night (or maybe a perfectly sunny day) when our intrepid hero set forth to solve the mystery of the missing books.  She needed reading material, and she needed it badly. 

Through raging winds, up treacherous cliffs, in the footsteps of dastardly doers of dreadful deeds, she made her way to the Reston Library, where she found the answers, and all the adventure she could ask for --- it was none other than the Friends of the Reston Regional Library, in the Lobby, with a Book Sale! 

Come to RRL February 1-4th for our annual Mystery, Thriller, and Adventure Book Sale.  Slake your thirst for sleuthing, quench your craving for quests, partake of a portion of procedurals, or relish a ration of risk….  From cliff hangers to cliff climbers, we've got stories to set your mind working and your heart racing. Don't say we didn't warn you!

Sale will be held in the lobby of Reston Regional Library
11925 Bowman Towne Drive
Reston VA 20190

Sue Grafton fans:  This sale features a special memorial offering of signed first additions by the beloved late author
