{pouting} I've just double-checked the schedule for the Brandeis book-sale up at Old Orchard and it's finally dawned on me that the last day of it this year is FRIDAY and not Sunday like I'd been thinking... Is anybody out there with car-access planning a field-trip up there for Friday's "bargain day" orgy of book-buying goodness, that I might tag along with? (It's such a pain to do these things on the bus...)

feeling: aggravated aggravated

Wow, they really did change their schedule this year. Maybe holding it over two weekends was too much work?

I doubt I'll go (I'm not buying many Things right now), but if I do I'll phone you first.

"orgy of book-buying goodness"? Do tell me more...

The Brandeis sale takes place in a humongous tent out in the OO parking lot. The last day, being bargain day (I think the terms are .50/book, this may have changed), generally turns into a feeding-frenzy not unlike what happens when you drop chum into shark-infested waters... Completely insane experience, and great fun if you're not actually expecting to find anything specific; I think they hold it in June so people can stock up on Random Summer Reading.

I totally forgot about it beginning last weekend, and missed it! Very irritating. But on the other hand, thrifty (I still have a bunch of cheap paperbacks from last year's sale that I haven't read yet).

So do I, but that's never stopped me before... :)
