Have you seen how much a new best-selling hardcover book costs these days? On average, it could set you back as much as $30.
That thirty dollars could score you so many 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!
Bookstock is back for its 17th year, 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.
Over the past 17 years, Bookstock has generated more than $2 million for literacy and education projects in Michigan. Bookstock is brought to the community by a consortium of non-profit organizations that support education and literacy projects throughout metro Detroit. Nearly 800 volunteers work together throughout the year to organize and staff the weeklong sale.
