Book Sale...This Saturday!

Don't forget!

The Hendricks are hosting a huge book sale:

Saturday, August 15
12-4 p.m.
828 Tanglewood
Bryan, Texas

While the book sale is going on outside, the Apels will be hosting an open house inside. Their house is for sale. People can see how cute it is on Saturday.

Here's the scoop on the books...

We have somewhere between 1-2 THOUSAND books to sell.

Most were from an elementary school in Humble.

The rest were from a local teacher here in town.

Most books will be 50 cents.

Most of those books are elementary fiction. There are some nonfiction. Lots of junior high/high school fiction. Almost all of these are hardback books.

All easy readers will be 75 cents.

Books that will be $1 include:

Classics (many of these are books listed on the Sonlight reader list)

Contemporaries (Harry Potter, etc.)

Scholastic Books (Magic Tree House, some Nate the Great, Junie B. Jones, lots of popular books)

Abeka Readers

DK Books

Magic School Bus Books

Captain Underpants

Over 400 of the books we're selling are the uber popular, $1 books. The rest are great too...but I just want to stress that we have a lot of the very popular books to buy as well.

We have enjoyed growing our library and our hope is to provide an easy, one-stop shopping place for other families (and teachers) to grow their libraries as well.

No pre-sales. If you show up early, you'll be put to work putting the books on the tables, but no one will be "rung up" until noon.

If anyone is planning on camping out the night before on the Apel's front might let them know.

Hope to see you Saturday! Please spread the word!

Hey Keri...

No. We only sold half of them (which was a lot, but we still want to get rid of the rest!) I'm going to let people come and go and buy them from our garage until I get the next big sale together. There are so many great books left. We'll advertise in the paper next time, but until we do, people are welcome to buy out of the garage!
