The Macy's Used Book Sale - first day notes!

I got over to the L and N Depot today for the Macy's 2011 Used Book Sale. The whole parking lot was full! But there are a LOT of books left, CD's, audiobook sets, cookbooks, children's books, hardbacks and softcover books too.

Hardcover books are just $1.00, and paperbacks are 50 cents each.

The audiobook sets are $2.00 each. Today's sale lasts until 7 p.m.

I hope to go tomorrow morning too. Book lovers, if you have not gone yet, now's the time. The money from this sale will go towards the Southern Kentucky Book Fest this year.

Information about the sale can be had at 745-5016. The sale goes on tomorrow (Saturday) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

I got some really fun books. One is called Notre Dame. It tells the story about Esmerelda and Quasimodo, but has a totally different ending. I also found some cat-themed detective books and a book on ancient Egypt. Rickey found some great philosophy books and we both got a poetry book or two.

There are lots more book deals there yet. I saw at least three people with hand-held computers going through the books, many book piles, and a book buyer stuck in the middle of his piles of books cross-legged, who looks like he is staying for awhile.

The lines aren't too long, and they have plenty of bags and boxes. If you can bring a smallish purse, that may help. My too-big one kept getting jostled. Just saying!
