Book sale stacks up in hard times

What's a used book sale like? Laurel Walker reports in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, March 4, 2009, on this week's by the Friends of the Elm Grove Library.

I'll vouch for it all: the pleasures and pains of pre-sale sorting, the book dealers' "land rush" at the preview sale, homeschoolers and children's books shoppers on opening morning, books bought as decoration, volume buyers in the final hours, and even books that should be thrown away.
