First Friends of the Library Booksale for 2012

Today I went to my first Friends Of the Library book sale today for 2012. This isn’t my local library and Dorval is the next city over from me.

Blue arrow represents I am and the black is where Dorval is.

I have to say I went in with high hopes because the last few years that I have gone I have gotten amazing finds. This year I did it alone since Tina @ Bookshipper was unable to attend.

When I walked in at 1pm the place was crowded  and from looking around they had a huge amount of books, magazines, cds, and DVDs. So I was excited. I automatically went to the back wall where they usually have the children and teen books. Well when I got to the table I was rather disappointed. They didn’t have any teen books at all and the majority of books were library books and not many personally owned books.

I did manage to find some books for Michael but not alot compared to other years. From there I went to the fiction section with hopes of finding some great books and that too was a bit disappointing since that was mainly library books and a few personally owned books.

I asked a volunteer before I started to dig into bags and boxes under the table if it was okay to do so since I wasn’t sure if the bags belonged to anyone and that too was a let down because they were dirty old paperback and smelly books.

I did manage to find some stuff which I will share with you: (I got all this for $30)

-It’s Not me, It’s You by Stephanie Wilder Taylor
-The Blue Girl by Charles De Lint (now why couldn’t this sale have been before Charles came to town?)
-GTO a graphic novel
-Postcard Killers by James Patterson
-Black Cat a graphic novel
-Bliss by Lauren Myracle
-The Prenup
-Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
-Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts (this is part of a series that I started to read)
-Hellbound Hearts by assorted authors (Kelley Armstrong is in it)
-The Living Dead 2 by assorted authors (Kelley Armstrong is in it)

-I found one Jughead double digest for Tina cause she loves Archies

-Fat Girl by Judith Moore this sounds good

These are for Michael:
-A beginner’s guide to drawing comics, caricatures and cartoon strips
-Brickbeards treasure
-The amazing Spongebobini
-Magical Pokemon how do you do journey
-Reading workbook
-Pokemon of Battle dimension The secret of the tower
-Pokemon Team Rocket Blasts off

Then I saw Season 1-2-3 of Stargate so I had to nab them. Here is where I admit that I had a huge crush on Richard Dean Anderson.

For some reason I saw the first season of Stargate but don’t recall watching the rest so what better chance to get caught up then with this?

Then I saw Dancing with the Stars cardio Dance and nabbed this one to. I currently began a diet and I think this is a great motivation.

So this is what I managed to get at the Friends of the Library sale. I know this year the selection was down from other years.

Have you been to any library sales? Have you noticed the difference in the books and selection?

  1. It looks like you found some great buys! I don’t go to our library sale – they’re usually packed and the books are priced too high.

  2. Yeah! thanks for the Archie 🙂 It sounded like you did okay Cindy. I am sorry that the selection wasn’t that good, but I think the entire season of Stargate should be fun! no comment on the Richard Dean Anderson crush though 🙂

  3. Daughter and I went to the Federation of University women’s book sale today in Waterloo, Ontario. We got about 50 books. Both of us are thrillled, and the purchase money all goes to scholarships for women.

  4. I love library sales but I don’t think I’ve been to one this year yet.

    And I’m a huge Archie fan, but I usually only buy Betty and Veronica Double Digests. Yes, I’m aware I’m using the present tense, because I still get them occasionally although it’s been awhile. 😉

  5. Seems like you did pretty well in the end! Fat Good is the one that appeals to me the most. Hope you enjoy them all!
