If you've exhausted the usual visits on your shopping go-to list and can't find the right fit for your special book-loving someone on our book lover gift guide, you'll want to stop by the Camelback Colonnade this weekend.
The Friends of the Phoenix Public Library will host its first-ever offsite book sale with more than 200,000 books, CDs, and DVDs in more than 80,000 sq ft (thanks to an empty, former Mervyn's).
Grab books for $2 per paperback and $4 for a hardback, CD, or DVD in addition to discounts for Phoenix Library Members, Military personnel, teachers, and City of Phoenix employees.
