For all the talk and hype about e-readers and audio books, there really is nothing that beats the tactile pleasures of a good, old-fashioned hard or soft cover.
Turning the pages, marking a favourite passage or an inspired bit of wordplay, dog-earring the corner to show where you’ve left off…
That’s the stuff book-lovers’ dreams are made of.
Think of it as a neighbourhood swap meet for passionate book enthusiasts.
It’s literally piles upon piles of (gently) used books that have been loved and are ready to be shared – often at deep discounts compared to what you would pay for new.
The sale runs 9am-4pm on Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturday.
And while you can often buy baked goods on site, you might also want to take the family for a sticky, sugary treat at BeaverMobile – a converted motor coach turned purveyor of BeaverTails – in the parking lot of the West Park Bowling.
Just make sure you wash your hands before you reach for that new book again…
