Counting Down!

Yep! The countdown has begun! It's a little over a month until the best semi-annual used book sale in Virginia kicks off! What makes it the best?

1. We restock all weekend. Just because big buyers show up the first day doesn't mean all the "good" stuff is gone. Come back between soccer games and you're just as likely to find something good as the first time you stop by.

2. We have the most in-tune volunteers around. Some of them who help with set-up are so knowledgeable about what's been stocked in their area that they can help you find titles that might be up your alley. Not exactly personal shopping, but close.

3. Rare and wonderful books. Some of our volunteers have eagle-eyes in spotting books that are worthy of a second look. But, like all book sales, we don't catch them all. So there's a chance you'll be the one to find the gold nugget in the mine.

4. Fun -- we know you don't want to wait in line and we know you want to find EXACTLY what's on your list. We can't fix either one of those things to a degree of perfection, but we can try to minimize your wait, and we can try to offer you good alternatives. And the fun part -- we try to do it with a sense of humor.

Speaking of alternatives, here are some books on our Amazon site that are just right to whet your whistle!

See you on Friends' Night -- Thursday, September 25 at 6:00 p.m.!
