Huge Library Book Sale 2014


Yay! It’s that time of year again when the “Friends” at Adriance Memorial Libray in Poughkeepsie, NY have their annual book sale blow out.  I know, you’re thinking how great can a used book sale really be.  Well this one was held in an empty, Stop n Shop supermarket and it filled the entire store.  Here take a look…I’m not all the way to the rear of the store, about half way back and facing the front to take the picture.

And here is another view to my right…

I scored 15 mass market paperbacks for $7.50 and a $.50 donation.  Here are my books, shoes and bathrobe …

best of my books

Bathrobe? You went to the book sale in a bathrobe???? No, Silly, I got caught in a downpour of rain leaving the sale, running to my car.  I peeled off my soaking wet clothes when I got in the house and donned my bathrobe.  Lucky for me I took a waterproof tote bag to carry the books.

P.S.- The sale runs through June 17th at the Stop n Shop on St. Andrews Road, Hyde Park, NY.  If you are in the northeast it is worth the trip from anywhere.

  1. I love going to library book sales! I can always find something that I fancy and it makes me happy to buy it secondhand from the library. Though I’ve never seen one this huge 🙂 I wish I was in NY to take a look, and I spy you got some really good titles, Deet 🙂 Enjoy your reads!


  2. Thanks for stopping by, Lady M.M., I too love the Library sales and I’m always especially happy to find OOP books. I wasn’t so lucky in that pursuit this time. I was also on the prowl for Lorraine Heath’s backlist and I didn’t see any at the sale.:-( I did find a book by my new favorite contemporary author Kristan Higgins, Yay!


    • I love them too. If you can find any author’s backlist at a library sale, then you’re most definitely luckier than me, I feel good if I can find one book from any of my favorite authors heh. Hope you can find what you’re looking for next time. Ps, I’m keeping Kristan Higgins in mind 🙂
