Book sale

The Friends of the Arlington Library book sale is coming. It starts Tuesday and runs through the weekend. It's located in the first level of the parking deck under the central library (1015 North Quincy Street). You have to be a member to get in but you can become a member at the entrance for $15. Or, at least that's what I paid last year.

That may seem like a lot of money to get into a used book store. But the selection is pretty impressive even if you don't get in on the first day. Last year I walked out with $101 in books at an average cost of ~$1.75 each. My Krode came away with several times that and needed several trips to get all the books to his car. His daughter had a good selection of her own and made a good sherpa for hauling his books. (That's a joke Mrs. Krode)
