The Book Buffet Is Open

The Book Buffet consists of a TON of books that were just pulled off the shelves.

Located outside on the porch, this is a great sale of table after table books.

Take as many as you like, all we ask is that you make a donation which goes to local nonprofit organizations.

Check it every day.

The books we pulled off the shelves came from our Classics section. A lot of Biographies of famous authors and some of their works. We weeded about 200 books and our Classics section looks great!
