Some people have gambling and drug addictions, I have a book addiction. I buy more than my bookcases can handle sometimes, but ahhhh…. the thrill of selecting topic and title, flipping through paper pages and bringing tomes home to read and keep my many other books company.

This weekend, April 20 – 22, is the Houston Public Library’s Annual Book Sale at the George R. Brown Convention Center (1001 Avenida de las Americas). They’re selling them nice and cheap for all you literary junkies needing a hook-up.

Regular Adult books are priced at $2 for hardcover editions and $1 for paperbacks. Better and Best Adult books are individually priced, usually between $3 and $10. Regular Children’s books are 50 cents, with the Better Children’s books starting at $1. Fiesta Mart bags are provided for those wishing to purchase a large quantity of books, and buyers are also encouraged to bring their own bags and wagons to make it easier for them to navigate the large collection of treasures.
