Friends Of The Library info!

Hey everyone! Several things: a review will be coming in very soon, so don't give up on me now, and my Max Promotion will be running until October 1st! I am sending out emails to some book bloggers to spread the news, so you are most likely to get one very soon! Also, expect several memes and a new one created by me, this week!

But the reason for this post is very important!
I have been informed through email by Jessica that there is an awesome book directory you can find online. Not only books are there but magazines, CDs, etc! I guess instead of it being explained by me, which can get confusing? Here, just read the email that was sent to me.

"All across the nation, many Friends of the Library organizations hold book sales that feature cheap books that were either donated or removed from circulation. Typically these sales sell books, CDs, magazines, and DvD's for rock bottom prices. A typical sale will sell most of their items for under 3 dollars.

Being charity organizations, these Friends of the Library organizations often have limited resources to advertise and promote their sales. As such, many people are never made aware of the excellent deals they are missing within their own communities. That's where comes ins. We are attempting to bridge the gap between Organizations looking to more effectively advertise their sale, and people looking to find more places to get good deals on books and media.

Friends of the Library organizations and other non-profit groups can freely advertise their sale on our site. Our site currently has 2500 active listings, and we have been adding over 100 everyday.

People looking to find sales can use our powerful search tools to find these sales. They can search by state, zip code, sale size, and date ranged. Furthermore, people can create an account and save sales to their calendar to help them better track the sales they want to go to. You can also sign up for notifications to be emailed when a new sale in your area is listed, or a reminder email a few days before the sales on your calendar so you don’t ever miss a sale you want to attend.

I believe book sales are a great way to find bargain books and media while at the same time supporting the local libraries and non profits we all know and love. It's a total win-win."

Very informant I'd say! So what do you think? Awesome and money saving right?! It definitely is a win-win! Thanks Jessica!
