Our 12th year in East County! Our Annual Spring Sale will open from 6-9 pm on Friday, April 26, 2013 to a members-only crowd. That’s a good reason for non-members to arrive with their membership fees in hand! The remaining sale will be open to all. Sunday’s sale prices will be discounted 50%, so come back for those items you by-passed the first visit. Proceeds of the sale directly support the Multnomah County Library system.

Book sales, author readings, and book events have always caught my eye, but since I started this blog I am almost overwhelmed by how many opportunities there are to live a life filled with book related activities.
The ones I talk about are usually most relevant to people within driving distance of Portland, Oregon but even if you can’t make it to these specific events I hope they’ll inspire you to keep your eyes open for the wide variety of ways to live a literary life!
