One. More. Day.

Yes, the Victoria College Book Sale officially starts at 2 P.M. SHARP TOMORROW!  Our Opening Day hours run until 8 p.m., so don’t wait too long to come by.  For this first day only, admission is $5 but… it’s FREE for students who show their ID.

Here’s one last preview of some of the gems we have to offer at this year’s sale:

And there’s plenty more!

But you’ll have to check it out for yourself!  See you there!


It’s almost here!

Just a couple of days to go before the start of the 26th Annual Victoria College Book Sale!  Hooray!

In case you haven’t been by Vic campus lately, we’ve got a GIANT sign on Queen’s Park Crescent to greet you plus banners on the majestic south steps of Old Vic AND the east entrance to the building:

As promised, here’s a glimpse into how set-up was going on Friday afternoon in Alumni Hall on the main floor:

Don’t forget to mosey on up the stairs to the second floor:  there’s a huge selection of items to find!

And in case running up these steps two at a time seems a bit daunting, there is an elevator tucked away in the far corner:  just ask one of our friendly volunteers if you have trouble finding it!

Congrats on reaching the second floor!

You’ll find fiction, mystery and maybe a few other sections as you enter:

Don’t worry; those empty wooden tables will be chock full of goodies by Thursday!

Check out this collage of volunteers working away diligently in the Vic Chapel as they unbox, sort, and organize mountains of books on the second floor:

So what kinds of books can you expect to find?  In a word:  EVERYTHING!

Tomorrow, we’ll give you one last pictorial preview of titles available at this year’s sale.

One week to go!

Are you ready???  Just one short week before the start of Victoria College’s 26th Annual Book Sale and those seven days will fly by quickly!  Posters are up all around campus; banners have been hoisted above the arches into Old Vic; tables have been set up and boxes have been moved and unpacked.  We’re ready… are you???

Have you been pumping iron and running sprints to ensure you’re in peak physical condition like the models below?

You can always re-visit superstar blogger Sonja’s post from last fall about how to prepare for Vic’s Annual Book Sale Marathon.

And you can always show off your skills and finesse at the Book Sale by…

…striking a pose and dancing through the aisles to your heart’s content…

…or re-balancing your mind-body connection…

…but please don’t bowl over other book-lovers.

There’s room enough for everyone and lots of good deals to go around!

And remember:

Watch for our next update where we’ll give you the exclusive sneak peek at the set-up in Old Vic as well as pictures of more books available for sale!
