This is one of the biggest used book sales in Delaware, and one that I always try to attend since it benefits a great cause. Money raised from this sale goes for local scholarships, and as a writer and reader, I applaud their efforts to make education accessible. The books they sell cover tables stretching from one end of the Concord Mall in north Wilmington to the other. One of the best things about buying in Delaware is that we have no sales tax.
The sale starts tomorrow, February 27, and runs through Sunday, March 2, 2014. Buyers looking for deep discounts can buy a bag for $10 and fill (does not apply to collectibles). Best of all, books have NOT been picked over; NO buyer restrictions.

Update 2/27/2014: I just found this story on shopping library sales. I had to LOL; it sounds so much like the sales I have attended. Be kind to your fellow shoppers though. I have pulled books for people when I overheard authors they wanted; they returned the favor. http://bookriot.com/2014/02/27/rock-library-book-sale/
