Winter Used Book Sale

Submitted by Gigi Sukin on Sun, 12/02/2012 - 9:41pm

Why not be thrifty and score some tresaures for your reading pleasure. Remember, when it comes to secondhand books, the term 'used' refers to a work's prior ownership, not its present condition. In fact, some new models look more 'test-driven' than the books bought by other avid readers, yet handled with care. Choose from more than 30,000 well-seasoned books and check out the selection of music and movies available at discounted prices. Thu-Fri 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., Sat. 1-5 p.m.
