Books, Books and More Books at the Half Price Books Clearance Sale

 I am a huge book lover! I might have spent more time at the public library in my hometown than any other place while I was growing up, so I jumped at the chance to check out the Half Price Books Clearance Sale. The sale is happening this weekend in the Agriculture Horticulture Building on the State Fairgrounds and it is GIGANTIC! It’s an event that took three days to set up. It takes three whole days because there are over 100,000 books and 21,000 DVDs to organize and assemble.
 This is the fourth year for the sale at the Fairgrounds and each year it gets bigger, with overstock coming from over 30 different stores in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio. Each day about 600 people stock up on religion, fiction, media, nonfiction, history and home arts/crafts. Some folks grab them by the arm loads, while others grab them by the cart load. The sale is Fri. and Sat. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sun. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It’s the perfect way to get ready for some summertime reading… enjoy!
