Have you seen how much a new best-selling hardcover book costs these days? On average, it will set you back around $30.
That thirty dollars could score you DOZENS of books! They might not be new, but they’re new-to-you, just as readable and quite affordable! This month is the perfect time to grab a stack of titles for you and your family (you’d love to have something to read on vacation, right?)!
Bookstock is back, offering unbelievable deals on used books and media. You’ll love the bargains you’ll find at Bookstock – it’s metro Detroit’s biggest and best used book and media sale! And you can feel good knowing that proceeds benefit literacy and education projects in metropolitan Detroit.
Bookstock has generated more than $1.8 million for literacy and education projects throughout Oakland County and Detroit in the last 16 years. More than 800 volunteers work together throughout the year to organize and staff the weeklong sale.
