This library is wonderful and the book fair is nothing short of amazing. There are six rooms of nothing but books. This was my second year attending and it was not a disappointment. This yearly event has hundreds of books from fifty cents to five dollars. I spent 3 hours, for Real, 3 hours looking at books. It's a book lover's dream come true.
The funds go to support this historic library and you can even make an extra donation at check-out. They take cash and credit. It's the most organized book fair that I have ever visited. The categories are endless; mystery, history, civil war, fiction, classic, literate, sports, religion and on and on.
The volunteers are friendly and helpful and I can't really think of one bad thing to say about this yearly event. Chicago, it is one more day, and on tomorrow the books are half price. For Real, half price off a buck, you can't beat that one bit. The Newberry Library is located 60 West Walton Street, parking is tight so take public transpiration. It's just a few blocks north of the Chicago Ave Red Line stop. My bestie Markeeda treated me to the book fair, so I was on a book budget; but in the end, I got 23 books for $50.00... Here's my stack! Yes I plan to read them all!
Post Script: RLT Reads Book club went to hell in a hand basket. I got sick and y'all disappered. September we are coming back, if I'm reading the books and reviewing them with Sophie... No But Real For... I miss you!! Please Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that you still want to be a part... You can also Tweet or Facebook message your email address to me...
