I went to the huge booksale I posted about previously. Well I got lost on the way there (wrote down the directions to the library, not the sale and had to stop by a shop to ask someone where it was), but other than that it was a booknerd's dream. There weren't many sci-fi/fantasy books there though, I think either not many were donated or the sci-fi/fantasy nerds raped the place before I could. I ended up with several young adult titles (The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld, the first two Georgia Nicolson books by Louise Rennison, a tiny book on sayings, a Tamora Pierce book that turned out to have several pages ripped out of the middle so I had to recycle that), that were jumbled with the fiction so I guess they were missed since they were in the wrong place. My sister got a lot of heavy hardcover artbooks. We put them all into one of my big reuseable whole foods bags (yay, good birthday present) and only paid $3 for about 16 books.
The place really looked like the picture above except the books were much messier and there were a LOT of people scrambling around. Take the number you see up there and double it because all the tables had boxes of books stacked under them. When we first entered the room all we heard was desperate shuffling noises. The room smelled like crazed desperation I tell you. It was awesome. There is another huge FOL booksale happening in the Poughkeepsie South Hills Mall starting June 22nd. I'm most likely going the Monday after it starts. Not sure what good stuff will be left by then, but we shall see.
