  1. My husband and I designed and maintain Book Sale Finder – the Online Guide to Used Book Sales. BookSaleFinder.com tells you where to find book sales in your area and across the nation.

    By searching the site, you will see which libraries have upcoming sales and will likely accept your books. Many groups also have ONGOING sales right in the library.

    The information is FREE. Please visit http://www.BookSaleFinder.com.

    Thanks and regards,
