Of all the book sales in Central Mass., the one to beat is the Friends of the Gale Free Library sale in August. Their book sales are always excellent — the prices are slightly higher than some of the cheaper sales, but are always extremely well-organized and sorted, and have the best selection.
And if you’re a slightly bibliomaniacal book buyer, there are often teenaged volunteers who are more than willing to carry your books to your car for you.
