This past Saturday, I went on my biannual trip to the Gainesville book sale. And once again, I was not let down. I LOVE THAT SALE!!!
This makes my tenth journey to this fabulous sale and yet I’m always amazed at the great selection I’m able to find and bring back home. When I was all said and done (after 3+ hours), I had found over 400 books.
These trips definitely make me feel my age (hence the late posting this week). Driving 3 hours to get there, lifting and carrying heavy loads of books to the holding book section, walking/searching/bending/squatting/ for 3+ hours, loading books into the car, and then driving 3 hours home can make for a long day. But is ABSOLUTELY worth it. I now have my inventory for the year. And that feels very good. I can now focus on listing. Not that I won’t go out for a “hunt” once in a while…but I’ll be doing it because I want to…not because I have to.
If you haven’t been to a book sale…check out www.booksalefinder.com for sales in your area. Click on your state on the map at the bottom. And for helpful tips on how to survive a book sale (especially a big one), check out my earlier post here.
Happy hunting this week!
