Just picked up my books today! Love the booksale. The new bag concept is interesting. I ended up with two copies of the same book in one bag. 1/2 the books in the bag were by this author. Lol.

One of the greatest organizations in the county. They’re fun to be with and fun to work for, on the sales. They provide a great service to people who can’t afford to buy new books. I’ve seen parents and teachers leaving with boxes of books for their students and kids. What would Gainesville be like without them

The semi annual book sales are HUGE!! I was afraid that waiting till the last day might be a mistake, that the selection would be picked over. I was delighted to find just as many books as I remember finding on previous Days 1 or 2! 10 CENTS each is a book lover's dream!! Only downside to this sale is the old building it's held in. I think they have out grown it. Parking can be a challenge, and it's HOT in there. Be prepared to be up close and personal with hundreds of other sweaty book lovers.

I looked forward to this event for MONTHS!!! After a 2.5 hour drive, I got in line at 7am. Opening on the first day was madness but so cool to see so many people excited for BOOKS!!! Not a video game or release of a movie, but BOOKS!!! I got such great deals, I came back on Sunday! Yes, I did the drive again! It seemed like all new inventory! I can't wait to come back in October. The staff were all nice and helpful. These volunteers clearly worked their tails off to make this possible!

I still cannot get over how amazing this experience was. I went two days in a row, and plan on going again as well. There are just SO many books and the prices are unbelievable. There is absolutely something for everyone. Huge shoutout to all of the volunteers too. They were all so kind and helpful. I love this event!

There’s nothing like being surrounded by book lovers! A teacher’s paradise.... and if you’re lucky, you may have a generous volunteer pay for your books, knowing that he/she is feeding the minds of your students!💕
