Book Sale – September 2014


Fall semester is just around corner. Faculty and instructional academic staff arrived last week, and students move in this Labor Day weekend. That means it’s time for new books for the monthly sale.

In case you’ve never visited our book sale, here’s the scoop: near the beginning of each month we usually put out a new selection of books for sale. Some are donated to us by generous library lovers and others are have been withdrawn from our collections for various reasons. All are in search of a new home. Books are typically $1 a piece, although there are certain exceptions. These include a second chance sale, set sale, media sale, and more, with prices ranging from $.25 to $2 or more.

Subjects can include just about anything under the sun, although this month we are focusing on all things literary, including fiction, poetry, and criticism to name a few. Here is a sampling of what is on sale this month:

  • Aftershocks (1985) by New Your Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter
  • Kafka’s Soup: A Complete History of World Literature in 14 Recipes (2006) by Mark Crick
  • Reservation Road (1999) by John Burnham Schwartz
  • Wolf Moon (1974) by Jean Pedrick

Come, peruse, and purchase!
