Friends of the SF Public Library 50th Annual Big Book Sale
About six months ago my non-hoarding, ultra-tidy (compulsive?) husband was hell-bent on a household reboot. Although I do not share his enthusiasm for constant house cleaning, much less periodic purging, I (generally) enjoy the fruits of his labor.
This time books were in his sight. We are all avid readers but not repeat readers so once finished our books are more trophies than useful. Therefore, Mr. Deal Tracker (wisely?) decided someone else could benefit from those books.
He purged with reckless abandon. Fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, art books, coffee table books, music books, DIY books, self-help books, hardcover, soft cover. His books, my books, the kids’ books. Not much escaped his heavy hand. He had no mercy.
In the end he amassed a whopping 25 boxes of books. All happily carted off to the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
Leaving me particularly excited about the upcoming Friends of the SF Public Library 50th Annual Big Book Sale. I plan to get there early. My goal is two-fold. First, reclaim a few titles I just can’t live without. Trust me, there were real gems in those boxes. And second, pick up some used books that are new to me.
Friends of the SF Public Library 50th Annual Big Book Sale features my beloved ex-books, DVDs, CDs, audio books, vinyl, and other forms of media all priced $3 or less. Hold out until Sunday and all items left are only a dollar. Plus enjoy a treasure hunt for great prizes hidden in books with clues transmitted via twitter.
