More praise for the IMCPL

A few months back, Jim praised the greatness of the IMCPL. This here is probably a post that should have been made before the actual sale but this past weekend the IMCPL had one of of there second hand prose book sales over at 25th and Meridian. Along with the books there is quite a few CD's and a limited amount of DVD's on sale as well.

My haul from the sale...
Books
Timbuktu by Paul Auster

VHS
Waking Life
Blade Runner - Directors Cut

CD's
Lush's Lovelife
Lush's Spooky
Cardigans - Long Gone Before Daylight Gave that one away as a gift, since everyone should own it.
Talib Kweli's Quality
Drive By Truckers - Southern Rock Opera

DVD's
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
You Can Count on Me

All that, ALL OF IT for only $14. Thank you, IMCPL!

Will I like all of it, maybe not. I can take or leave half the CD's and Blade Runner to me is just so/so. But for $1-2 each, its worth a shot. I don't know when the next sale is. I don't see one listed on their calender. But they come around once every 3-6 months I believe, so keep your eyes and ears open.

I didn't know that the library was doing this. Oh well. Sounds like you made out with some good stuff.

I'll try to make note of it before the fact next time, Jim.

It's funny, there was not very many CD's there, but what was there was great stuff. Plenty of good books too, but my nightstand is just too full of books right now to read anything else.

Wow, I’ve must always miss the CD’s. Three time a year, the Monday morning after the book sale, IMCPL opens the door to not-for-profit agencies to haul out what ever they can carry for free! I found some good stuff for our students and volunteers.
