Reading for Books

Two good book-centered events and shopping opportunities this weekend.

The second annual Books for Bucks fundraiser for Real Change takes place Friday and Saturday June 20 & 21 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Ballard. Thousands of quality books, records, tapes, and CDs have been donated to help Seattle's street newspaper reach their summer funding goals. Friday Friends' Pre-sale from 4:00 - 7:30 pm and the Saturday Browsers Bonanza, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. At Trinity Church, 65th and 23rd NW.Also, both locations of Third Place Books are holding their semi-annual sale with 40% off all used books. Both stores have an amazing stock of used titles, with more than 100,000 volumes between them. This weekend only. 6504 20th Ave. NE in Ravenna and 17171 Bothell Way NE in Lake Forest Park.

I'm hoping to find a copy of A Journey Round My Skull by Frigyes Karinthy, or maybe a nice used copy of Griel Marcus' Lipstick Traces. Wish me luck.
