Rotary Book Sale 2014 - Chilliwack Mall October


Sunday morning was the start of the week long Chilliwack Rotary Book Sale at the Chilliwack Mall.  This event is the Fraser Valley's best used book sale and I wanted to get there early.  Maybe not like some of the people that lined up in the dark at 6 a.m. - but close to the opening.

By 7:30 a.m., I was there the doors had only been open for a half hour and already a steady stream of people were scooping up $2 used book deals.  A huge selection of recent titles that is so well organized by hundreds of people from Canada's third largest Rotary Club, it's volunteers and students.

So...I could not believe it when I heard one woman say "It's too bad they don't arrange them alphabetically. They could sell 10 times as many books".  All I could think was that despite the effort that has gone into arranging them by topic, grouping the works of prolific authors together, providing waist high viewing at bargain prices there will always be someone that has to complain.  Human nature I guess - hold on - there is probably a book on that! A book that is easy to find because of the stellar organizational job this group does.

This literacy fund raising project succeeds on the individual, local community and even global levels.

The Rotarians 4, Bob, Debra, Dennis and, fellow Royal LePage Wheeler Cheam agent, Ian were nice enough to pose and take some cash from me.

I got some great buys but left lots more.

Imagine living here...and get out to the sale this week, on until October 25th!
