Weekend Happening: St. Louis Book Fair

The time for the St. Louis Book Fair has rolled back around! Woot! Woot

The Greater St. Louis Book Fair is one of the nation's oldest, largest, and most popular charity book sales, offering hundreds of thousands of books for sale. For over 60 years, book lovers and collectors have enjoyed bargain prices on a diverse and quality selection of new, gently-used and rare books.

Fair proceeds benefit local non-profit education and literacy programs.

If you have never attended this event, it is the ULTIMATE. Our family never misses it, as we are huge readers. The prices are ridiculously low and the selection is phenomenal.

Last year, we left with TWO FULL BOXES of maybe-read-once-as-mint hardbacks and novels for both me and the kids for a total of $25.00. Yes, the price of ONE new book. Amazing deals, environmentally friendly, and a wonderful cause.
