Cool Bookstore

I'm rarely about to attend Forever Young Adult's book club at the Highball in Austin. (It's worth attending, if you are in the area.) But I'm still on the mailing list. Rebecca Halpern sent out this letter about Recycled Reads, which I've actually been to but never posted about. (I know, I'm bad.)

I just wanted to let you know about a little gem of a bookstore located in north/central Austin. It's Recycled Reads, Austin Public Library's bookstore and all youth books are 50 cents each so you can gorge on books and still have money for rent and cocktails. In fact, if you are ever in need of a lot of copies of your monthly pick for your club, let us know! We might be able to scrounge some up and save 'em for you. Then, let everyone know where to come get the cheap goodies! (All proceeds go to support the library!)

Plus, if you're interested, we take donations from the public if you need to weed your personal collections. Anything that comes into the store will be sold, donated to philanthropic organizations that promote literacy programs, turned into book art, or transformed into building materials. Nothing goes into a landfill, which is awesome.

Anyway, keep up the good work and let us know if you'd like us to keep our eyes out for any titles that come in. Or just drop by and browse our collection!

I know most of ya'll don't live in Austin, but you might check if your city's libraries have a similar program.
