Annual Used Book Sale @ Women & Children First

Who doesn't like foraging through great books for even greater deals? If you count yourself among those so inclined, stop by Women & Children First next weekend for their annual used book sale. You'll find steals on "fiction, nonfiction, children's books, LGBTQ titles, CDs, DVDs, and collectables" -- all for a good cause. Proceeds from the weekend benefit the bookstore's non-profit arm, the Women's Voices Fund, which supports all the wonderful programming they make free to the public. July 30 - 31st, 10am-7pm.

I really like this blog and it does a wonderful job of pointing out lit events I might have missed. A small nitpick: posts about events don't always include the address of the event. I understand why this omission might seem minor, but it can be frustrating.

Thanks for the feedback. Often times, posts in the Book Club section aren't as fleshed out, as say, a Slowdown post. But I can see where that would be frustrating, and it's something we'll keep in mind.
