The Origin of the Paperback

Want to Get Ready for Summer Reading?

The Friends of the Fullerton Public Library are getting ready for their next used book sale because we are hoping that all of you readers will want to prepare for summer by stocking up on lots of inexpensive reading materials.
On Saturday,  June 14 our sale will take place in the lobby of the Conference Center of the Fullerton Public Library.  At this time each item will sell for less than one dollars.  Paperbacks will go for 50 cents.  Magazines will be selling for 25 cents. 
The official word about the sale is this:

"We will have children's picture & chapter chapter books, adult fiction - mass market and trade PB books all for $0.50.   No HB. We will have children VHS and SciFi VHS for $0.50. Magazines will be $0.25. "

Even though we readers might have digital devises that we can load with current bestsellers and take with us on vacation, the printed matter is still so nice to have.  Some of our devices are difficult to read outside in the sun. They are just not as comfortable as a nice soft paperback or flexible magazine.  When you are at the beach you don't want to take your Nook or Samsung, do you?
Come to our sale and buy  a few magazines, a bunch of mysteries or a stack of romances.  And if you have children buy them something too. Kids get tired of swimming and need to relax with good books.   Even the littlest ones will enjoy having there own magazines to read or view. When you only spend a quarter or two for something to read, you won't care if it gets wet or full of sand will you?
