Livonia Bookstock 10th Anniversary Sale at Laurel Park Place

Media loving families, don't miss it! Books, DVDs, CDs, games and loads more are in store April 22-29, 2012 with great finds for parents and kids

Ten years. Tens of thousands of used books. All under one roof, over the span of eight days – with two cool guest writers. Add 'em together, and what do you get? The biggest used-book sale in the region: Bookstock, hitting Laurel Park Place in Livonia April 22-29, 2012 and celebrating its 10th birthday year!

A bona fide book lover's paradise, his page-turning event starts with a Sunday pre-sale event that runs 8:15-11 a.m. and costs $10. But after that short time, admission is totally free. Regular hours are 11 a.m.-6 pm. Sundays and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Janet Berman, co-chair of the sale, says some 100,000 books will be up for grabs, along with DVDs, CDs, books on tape, magazines, even vinyl records, sheet music and, if you act fast, PlayStation 3 games still in shrink-wrap. If you're looking to "stock" up, this is definitely the place to be!

What'll sort of reads will you find specifically? Just about any genre or category you want, Berman says. Among the most popular are children's books, cookbooks, comic books and even some collectables, like tomes from the Hardy Boys series.

Most are priced just $1 to $3 (cash or check only). The money funds education and literacy programs in the area, Berman adds, including scholarships to library science students at Wayne State University. It's 100 percent volunteer-run, to boot.

Detroit daily newspaper writers Rochelle Riley and Neal Rubin serve as honorary event co-chairs.
