60 items limit? LAWL! I guess that’s probably for those scheming 2nd-hand bookshop owners (not that I have anything against 2nd-hand bookshop owners).

Expect it to be pretty awesome! See you guys there! 😀

Addendum: Just curious, any chance one can find the Bible at the sale or does the library strictly not stock up on religious literature?
