Some people wait all year long for Christmas. Or their birthday, the NBA playoffs, the beginning of elk season — we've all got our thing. For Phoenix bibliophiles, that's the VNSA used book sale, which is traditionally held the second weekend in February at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. "Book sale" doesn't begin to cover it: Each year, VNSA offers up hundreds of thousands of books, CDs, DVDs, games, sheet music, magazines, and much more at ridiculously low prices to thousands of shoppers, some of whom travel across the country and even the world to attend. Bring a backpack, bring a suitcase, bring a trash bin (we've seen people do it), and start filling it with enough reading material to get you through to the next sale. And best of all, VNSA is a nonprofit organization, which means that going overboard on purchases just sends that much more money to local charities. Everybody wins.
