As much as I love movies, I also enjoy reading. It’s something I share with my entire family. Sometimes, there is just nothing more relaxing than curling up with a good book, and getting lost in then story. Yet, books don’t also come cheap. So, I’m super excited to share about Bookstock! A local event to help families enjoy books, and other media at awesome bargain prices.

WHAT IS BOOKSTOCK?
Bookstock is an annual, non-profit used book and media sale. It is a highly visible event with thousands of shoppers. All merchandise sold comes from donations and all workers and organizers are volunteers. Proceeds from the sale, after deducting expenses, are donated to non-profit organizations. Merchandise remaining after the sale is donated to area non-profit organizations and schools.

Thousands of Pre-sorted books and merchandise!

  • Current fiction
  • Non Fiction
  • Books on tape
  • Children’s books
  • Cookbooks
  • CD’s
  • DVD’s

WHEN AND WHERE DOES BOOKSTOCK TAKE PLACE?
Bookstock takes place April 27-May 4, 2014 at Laurel Park Place in Livonia, Michigan.
On Sunday, April 27, 8:15 a.m.-11:00 a.m., there is a Pre-Sale for which there is a $20 entrance fee. After that, admission is free.
Hours are 10:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on both Sundays.

WHAT BENEFITS DOES BOOKSTOCK GENERATE?
Bookstock benefits the entire community by recycling gently used books and media and then offering them for sale at value prices. Most books and media range in price from $1-$4, although there are “special selections” (more valuable books) at various price points.

In 12 years, Bookstock has donated just shy of $1,000,000 to non-profit organizations in Detroit and the metro area, including those comprising its coalition. Additionally, Bookstock donates large quantities of unsold books to other non-profit organizations and schools. For example, the Salvation Army receives the bulk of the remaining books and media. Bookstock also underwrites a scholarship at the Wayne State University School of Library Science and supports the Bookstock Fund, a literacy fund that provides micro-grants to enhance literacy and learning in Detroit and the metro area.

WHAT ADDITIONAL SPECIAL EVENTS DOES BOOKSTOCK OFFER?

  • Bookstock’s Monday Madness, Monday, April 28, all day: Each purchaser receives an envelope with varying prizes. Prizes are randomly varied in each envelope but a single envelope could include gift cards, coupons and/or a giveaway.
  • Teacher Appreciation Night, Tuesday, April 29, 3:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.: Teachers with valid i.d.’s receive a 50% discount.
  • Bookstock B.E.S.T. Award, Tuesday, April 29, 5:00 p.m.: The B.E.S.T. Award is given to the winners of a contest open to fourth grade students in the Detroit Public Schools based on submission of a one page essay about their favorite books. Five students, their teachers, and their schools all receive monetary awards.
  • Booksbuster Sale, Wednesday, April 30 and Thursday, May 1, 3:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.: For every three items purchased, a fourth one may be gotten for free (it must be the least expensive of the four chosen).

I recently transferred and filled our daughter’s monthly prescription to our local Target Pharmacy. I did it using my cell phone, and it was super easy! The script was ready for me in less than thirty minutes. Which was plenty of time for me to walk through the store and shop for the things on my list. The pharmacy tech was pleasant, efficient, and took the time to ask me if I had any questions. I didn’t this time, but it’s sure nice to know that in the future, I have someone willing to take the time if and when I do have questions.

The greatest adventure of all time begins with Star Trek, the incredible story of a young crew’s maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind.

J.J. Abrams’ 2009 feature film was billed as “not your father’s Star Trek,” but your father will probably love it anyway. Making this one a great gift for any trekkie!
