This week the CBC (Calgary Broadcasting Corporation) in Calgary had their enormous annual book sale.The book sale is a fundraiser for a Calgary charity that helps struggling readers aiming to give them a boost in the early grades and help them acheive literacy as adults.
There are always thousands of books for sale and many, many customers. The sale ran all weekend and on Friday night alone 1200 people attended. The sale is held in a community ice-hockey arena although the ice is no longer there because hockey has finished for the summer now.
It's always fun to go and pick up some gems. I found a fabulous 1970's book an how to make macrame hats and another on landing light aircraft in severe weather. I don't know when either of those skills are going to come in useful...but you never know!
