Books on the cheap

Portlanders will want to consider spending part of the upcoming weekend at the Friends of the Library Book Sale. It lasts all weekend, but the better stuff will be gone by Saturday. I've had mixed luck at this sale. Some years, I walk away with 20+ books, averaging two bones per book. Other years I am lucky to find a single paperback. You are certain to have to wade through stacks of Stephen King and Tom Clancy to find something more interesting, but with effort you can get some good ones.

The sale is fantastic for kid's books though. There are tons of them, board books, readers and picture books. If you need to fill out your kid's library, this is the place to do it.
