Book Sales in CT

Summer is library-sale season in this corner of New England. Two big book sales at local libraries are coming up. I've been to the Pequot's in years past, and it's a doozy, with books both inside and out (under tents). This year Junior is planning to hunt for Calvin & Hobbes anthologies when we go. The sale at the Pequot, which is situated in Southport, Connecticut, starts this Friday, July 27th, and runs through Tuesday, July 31st.

Another big book bonanza happens over Labor Day weekend. Redding, Connecticut's Mark Twain Library sponsors a sale from Friday through Monday, August 31st-September 3rd. (Open only in the morning on that last day.) I'd like to see this one. In our town, school starts before Labor Day this year; maybe by book-shopping at the Twain, we can pretend it's still summer. Like Southport, Redding is a picturesque New England village.

In addition to the books that the libraries no longer need, these sales feature loads and loads of donated books. You never know what will turn up.
