We always list our FOL sales on booksalefinder.com and we get lots of traffic from it.

Oh dear.

I had somehow managed to not know that one of the local libraries had a sale this weekend. Alas, now I do know. Evil, Cathy. You're evil. devil

(I wonder if my mother will mind if I buy myself a pile of books rather than getting her a gift for Mom's Day.......)

I get info from this site all the time. Fortunately most of the sales are a little further than I want to drive, so I'm pretty safe - ha!

Make sure you sign up for the email service and every week you will get an email telling you of book sales in your area. And yes, it is very dangerous for a bookaholic.

Two branches in King County have sales this weekend. They aren't that far apart.

There's four of them this friday alone!  If I sprinkle goodwill stores in between them I could have a day trip.  I've got it all google mapped out.  What a book buying BONANZA!!

There's a huge sale down in Portland. I'm having a hard time justifying a three hour drive (one way). Plus I'd have to pay for parking. What if I don't find anything?

Funny thing about Goodwill, I rarely find goodies there and their prices are a bit high. I like my local St. Vincent de Paul much better. Plus the Desert Industries shop (although I've picked that pretty dry for now).

Yeah, goodwills are more expensive than library book sales.   $1.50 for HB and $1 for PB.  A bag of books for $1-3 at a library book sale sure is cheaper.

The Goodwills here are $2 for a PB, higher for HB. St. Vincent de Paul is $1 for a PB, Deseret Industries $.50 PB and $1 for most HBs.
