Being Bookish

Holy paperback, Batman! Yes, that time has come. Time to clear off the coffee table, empty out the closet and reorganize the laundry room, because you’re going to need all that space. Why? Another Friends of the Phoenix Public Library Spring Book Sale is upon us. Even if you haven’t finished reading everything from the last sale, resistance is futile when it comes to what’s perhaps the greatest sale in the west (at least the desert). With more than 200,000 books, CDs and DVDs, from $1 paperbacks and $2 hardcovers to rare and collectible offerings (even better -- it’s all half price on Sunday!), it’s hard not to fill all those empty spaces with word candy. All proceeds benefit the many programs and services offered by Phoenix’s 17 public libraries.

Bring some boxes and a hand truck from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 27, at the Friends Warehouse, 1330 North 29th Drive. Visit

Sat., April 26, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.; Sun., April 27, 12-5 p.m., 2014
