bi-annual book sale. I love this volunteer job because I get to do the biographies. I love biographies. It is also fun because I work with other people who love books. These are the fruits of my labor, all ready for the sale. There are 6 shelf sections in this row, each with 6 shelves of about 30 books. That is more than 1,000 biographies!
The sale starts tonight. People saved places near the entrance early in the day, by 5pm there will be a line of eager buyers. It's estimated there are about 100,000 books. Most are priced at 75 cents for a paperback, $1.50 for a hardback. We make about $40,000 each sale for our library.
