Last year I discovered something that I can’t believe I
never knew about, the VNSA Book Sale. I thought I would check it out, there was everything from
books, dvds, rare books, all kinds of books and entertainment. I am not a super
reader, but there were some books I had in mind that I wanted to try and see if
I can find, One of them Jodi Picoult Between the Lines. I had started reading
it in the grocery store, and thought it would be faster to finish it if I
actually bought it. The YA books such as the Divergent series, Hunger Games,
James Patterson books, and The Reached series by Ally Condie. I picked up some Vince Flynn novels, I was into James
Patterson and liked how the Vince Flynn books looked so I bought some. I also
found the book I was looking for.
never read the Vince Flynn Novels, I ended up taking them to Bookmans and got
store credit for them, it was totally worth it. I went both days, the second day everything was half off I
had some good finds and can’t wait to go back this year and will probably be
safer to go one day this time. I loved being there, all the books to go through, finding
books you probably wouldn’t have found otherwise or come across. Shuffling
through CDs, my favorite part was the entertainment books like this Gone with
the Wind book, and some Star Trek Books I found.
To me novels are a
fading memory unfortunately, with most people into kindles, tablets, Ipads and
reading on mobile devices, I thought the magic of owning actual books was gone.
Then I went to this sale and to realize how many people are still into having
the actual book made me happy. There was even a line to get in it was nice to
see, even though reading on a mobile device is convenient it cannot replace
having an actual book, being able to flip through the pages, or quickly refer
back to something, and did I mention awesome bookmarks?
People were buying for their own collection, some looked
like they were buying for group reading sessions, with multiple books of the
same title, I found it a great opportunity to find something completely new.
One of my favorite parts was looking at all the cover art.
The VNSA used book sale here in AZ will be held on
Valentine’s Day weekend starting the 14th
