For those who have never experienced the 9 a.m. opening of the CH Booth Book Sale, a video has been provided for the sheer entertainment of it.
“We call it the running of the bulls,” Patsy Beddoe-Stephens, a volunteer of the CH Booth Book Sale, said. She was referring to the enthusiasm with which dealers and book lovers break into a run as soon as they pass through the sale doors.
Of the 120,000 books originally available, there are still plenty of choice titles to choose from. There are also movies, CDs, records and popular books of all genres.
According to one volunteer, the purchse of the crown jewel of this year's book sale, a signed copy of the "Hunger Games", is in negotiation.
The sale is held at the Reed Intermediate School, and will be open on Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.. There are still plenty of books to choose from, and on Tuesday, you can fill a bag for $5.
For those willing to gamble on availability of titles and are willing to wait, books will be free on Wednesday. Hours on Wednesday are only until noon, so waste no time in getting there. In fact, run.
