If there's an easy way to add a list of books to a message I don't know it. I've tagged the books I got with Big Book Sale 2008

Here's my haul:

Did anyone else think there were fewer books this year? Former years, there have always been tons of boxes under the tables, and there were very few this year.

I agree that it somehow seemed like less books and smaller crowds. I found a few of course.

I got 17 books for myself :-) and three to give away. They're tagged Big Book Sale 2010, if you want to look at them! Mostly history.

I went Friday morning, and found some good stuff. Didn't have time to stay very long, so didn't buy as much as usual.

Mine are also tagged Big Book Sale 2012.
