DEAL: Don't miss Bookstock - Metro Detroit’s Biggest & Best Used Book Sale 4/27 - 5/4 LIVONIA

I was selected for this sponsored post by Hay There Social Media. All opinions expressed are my own.

Get your bargain book shopping on at Bookstock! 

Books and reading are very important with my family.  When I was a kid, I would go weekly to the library with my sisters and we would stay for hours reading books and then checking out more books to take home.

Though I grew up and went into the technology field, one of my sisters went into library science and the other into secondary education. So when my son was born, my book loving librarian and school teacher sisters made sure my son's bedroom was filled with enough books to rival any library!  To this day, my son's favorite thing to do (outside of playing video games) to to read books and I sure that is because he was surrounded by them from birth.

My sisters' present of hundreds of baby, toddler, and elementary school level books was the perfect gift since books are not cheap, but they are the gift that keeps on giving for a lifetime.   But for those who don't have generous book giving relatives like I do, you need to check out an annual, non-profit used book and media sale that starts on Sunday called Bookstock.

Bookstock runs from Sunday, April 27th - Sunday, May 4th at Laurel Park Place in Livonia, MI and offers incredible deals on used books and media with all proceeds benefiting literacy and education projects in metropolitan Detroit.
