your most complete guide to used book stores and sales around the 'Burgh


As of March, 2010:
I'm still working on the first edition of 2010's SaleList.

I hope to have a starter version available soon.
In the meantime, you can get hints of possible sales from the SaleLists described below.
Just call the pertinent library and ask if they are having the sale again this year.

You may copy any of these files to your own computer as a PDF file. Click on the appropriate link below, then save the file that appears by clicking on the icon of a floppy disk on the PDF taskbar.

Of Possible Historical Interest

The last "good" SaleList I created before other commitments interfered was dated 4/28/2008. It looks like a work in progress, which it was, with notes about things to be confirmed, etc. It may nevertheless be helpful:
