Huge book sale at Toronto Reference Library this week

There's nothing quite as satisfying as rummaging through a used book sale and stumbling upon a treasure. Whether you're searching for a timeless classic or a discounted bestseller, sometimes it's the unexpected finds - like a 1960s-era cookbook - that are the most special.

This week, set your sites on the Friends of the Toronto Public Library's massive, annual sale happening at the Toronto Reference Library's Elizabeth Beeton Auditorium.

Everything will be priced between 10 and 50 cents - yes, cents. If you're itching to get rid of your spare pocket change, you should probably spend it wisely and buy a book.

The sale will run Thursday-Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., except for Thursday when it opens at 9:30 a.m.
