Book Blogger Hop August 28th - September 3rd: The Roman Emperor Hadrian Executed Four Ex-Consuls in 118 A.D.

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What time of the year does your library have its library sale?

I am lucky enough to live in an area where there are multiple good libraries within a fairly short distance. Most of these libraries hold two sales per year, one in the spring, and one in the autumn. I don't leave the issue up to chance, as there is an excellent website that I highly recommend named Book Sale Finder that one can use to locate book sales all across the United States, listed by state.1 The site doesn't only list library book sales, but library book sales do seem to comprise most of the entries. The site has a function that allows you to set it up to send you weekly e-mail alerts letting you know when sales are taking place in specific states. As I live near all three, I have e-mail alerts set up to tell me what books sales are taking place in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. As a result, I am usually able to go to one or two library book sales per month every spring and fall.

1 I don't know if there are similar websites set up for book sales in other countries.

    1. @Elizabeth: You're welcome. I hope your sisters get much use out of the site. One note - the site covers all of the United States, so if you live in the country you can use it too.

  2. What a great resource! Thank you for sharing. I am not aware of my local library having seasonal sales, but I know they sell books year round.

    Here's my response:

    1. @Literary Feline: Well, if your local library does have seasonal sales, then they will probably be highlighted on Book Sale Finder, and you'll know if they have one!
