Yo: the once-a-year gigantic/epic/not-to-be-missed book sale is going down this weekend at United Methodist Church.
Honestly, this shit is one of the highlights of my cold, dark, Park Slope winter. If you've never been, you should definnitely check it out. Basically, the United Methodist Church basement is taken over with piles and stacks and craploads of books which are all on sale for like next to nothing. It gets real serious crowded down there, and people will be in your way from the moment you enter until the moment you leave, but if you can hang, there is LOADS of good shit to be had.
I'm not going to tell you the sort of good shit I'm going to be looking for, cause then all you bitches are going to buy it all up before I get there on Sat morning. But, yeah: I'd be shocked to hear about someone going to this thing and not finding SOMETHING.
It's cash only, so ATM it up before you arrive. Also, they keep replenishing books all weekend long, so it really is sometimes worth it to go both days (I always do).
