A Red Letter Day! The Summer Used Book Sale at Locust Grove is today and through the weekend. I look forward to these twice-a-year sales as the selection of books is quite extraordinary. Lots of history and older hardcover books that I am so delighted to discover.
This historic home (scene of the last month's Jane Austen Festival) receives book donations all year long and I am taking with me today six books from my shelves that I have read and no longer want to keep. I love recycling!
As a bonus to the books, the two fellows who run the sale are compatriots of mine from my days working at an independent bookstore here - now defunct. They do a great job of organizing - all the books are sorted by category. The displays are neat and they are always bringing out 'refills' so the offerings are constantly being refreshed.
Oh, the joys of the hunt!
