I was tipped off to the St. Francis of Assisi, Indian Springs event via email from a local Birmingham bookaholic. Here’s the deal for all those in and around Birmingham, AL. It boasts 5,000+ used books that have been donated for this fund-raiser.
1. Friday Night – Preview Sale with Wine and Cheese – 5p-8p – $5 admission :: All hardbacks are $1 and all paperbacks are .50 cents.
2. Saturday – The Book Sale – 9a-4p – Free Admission :: Same price as above, but they have a special “Stuff a Sack” sale planned for 2p-4p which lets you walk out with as many books as you can cram in half a sack for $5 or a full sack for $8.
I have no idea what they’re raising money for, but there is not much that is as fun as cramming as many books into a sack as you can for $8. Though $1 hardbacks comes awfully close.
