It's time again for the Kurth Memorial Library Book Sale, where readers in East Texas put down the eReader in favor actual paper and binding. It starts Friday!

Do you think books are going the way of vinyl records? Many people have something digital now to listen to music and read books, but it seems like vinyl records and actual hard copies of books are still the top choice for the really cool people. Or at least those of us who choose to lag behind where technology is concerned.

So here's the deal if you want to browse through books, magazines, DVDs, and more this week. Many of the items are on sale for a buck or two, and some magazines are only a dime! What else can you buy for a dime these days? A tenth of a candy bar? This week you'll actually be able to use all that change that you just keep acquiring.

The sale starts today at 10 a.m. with magazines and paperbacks up first in the library lobby during normal library hours. Then the Lufkin Daily News says, Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m., members of the Friends of Kurth Memorial Library will get first dibs on the books for sale, with early-entrance privileges. Memberships can be purchased at the door too.

Friday and Saturday, the book sale is open to the general public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you're like me and you're tired of buying new books every time the kids outgrow one, head to the library! They'll have kids books for sure. And a big selection of science-fiction, mysteries, and others too.
