I really, really do. My public library holds the about once every quarter, and they're usually a fantastic grab bag of awesome. Paperbacks (including trades!) are a dollar. Hardcovers are two dollars. The fun is free.
Of course, it being a library booksale, it is kind of a mixed bag. How many books one may take away from it depends on what's out there. The last time I was there, I only picked up one book (David Levithan's Wide Awake).
Today I picked up thirteen. Honestly, both the romance and the YA sections were amazing. The general fiction was, eh, kinda small this year but otherwise no complaints. I managed to drag these babies home with me, having only spent $14.00 total. Now I have a giant stack on my floor that I am simultaneously proud and terrified of. Terrified in the sense of - holy shit where am I going to find the time to read all these?
