Every year in the city I live in, there is a great, big book sale in one of the malls. There are literally thousands upon thousands of books available on sale for charity and you could spend more than a couple hours just browsing the tables.
It’s also the time when I buy books I wouldn’t normally buy. For example I bought two chick-lit books and though I really enjoy that genre sometimes I can’t usually justify spending a lot of money on them as it’s unlikely I’ll read them more than once.
Another thing I love about this book sale is the option to buy into series that I’m way to far behind in to justify buying them all brand new. This year for example, I bought the first five books in Katy Reichs ‘ ‘Temperance Brennan’ series (There is a total of 16 books so far!!) as well as the first book in her YA spin off Virals.
I bought 20 books in the past three days and it was so cheap… it’s crazy. My Husband also bought a ridiculous amount of books as well… I’m sure his stack is bigger than mine however!
