My original request was fairly harmless. 'Just a book buyer looking for interesting spots. Maybe if bks4sale logs a couple hundred of their books into their account? ;)
There's another sale about 25 miles to the north:
Sigh...I love that site...
some new, some remainders, but mostly used.
I had to lurk over at your profile page. You've got quite the menagerie! I've one dog...and THREE cats.
I'm pretty much done with retail book stores, used book stores, library tent sales, library sales, Savers, Salvation Army, Goodwill...they are all too expensive for this ol' bibliohoarding bargain hunter.
I've stumbled upon those glorious gazillion cubic-yard bins in the back of the Hamden Goodwill Outlet store. Hardcover $0.50; paperback $0.25. Rapid inventory turns.
New Haven Reads
The mission of New Haven Reads is “to share the joy and power of reading.”
To that end, our goals are to:
•promote literacy and celebrate reading
•connect people with the materials and the training they need to break the cycle of illiteracy
•help children in New Haven increase their literacy skills by providing quality, free after-school tutoring services to those who otherwise would not have access to adequate literacy support
•increase public awareness of these programs
•operate a free community book bank
They're a free book "store." Teachers, librarians, and school personnel can come into the "big" room for free books. Everyone else can select up to five books from the front room. Very good selection if you're an educator!
They're run on donations and funding by Yale. I find it a great place to unload all those "withdrawn" books and doubles I accidentally buy every book-sale season.
