Spring Book Sale

A huge used book sale, sponsored by the Friends of the SF Public Library, is going on at Fort Mason through Sunday.

Books are roughly grouped by subject, but it's all about leisurely browsing.

I only bought one book, a Penguin anthology on opera, but it heartened me to see almost everyone else using shopping carts.

It's $3 for hardcovers, $2 for paperbacks & $1 for media. On Sunday everything goes for $1, but expect long lines at checkout.

If you really want to spend more for your books, there is a rare book section, with items like this juicy illustrated history of The Crusades. I also gawked at a 1st edition of Tony Kushner's Angels in America priced at $650.
