The Really Good, Really Big, Really Cheap Book Sale is this weekend

My favorite Book Sale of every year is

The Really Good, Really Big, Really Cheap Book Sale

It's monstrous, it's mayhem, it absolutely fabulous as they fill up the building with tons (literally not figuratively) of books and then they sell them for ridiculously low prices. A quick check of the blog, shows that I may have first mentioned this sale in 2004, but I believe I have been in prior years as well. I wonder if I just didn't want everyone to know about it? This is the 6th annual sale, each year is (unbelievably) bigger than before. The event sponsor reports that 14,000 people bought 94,000 books at the 2006 event.

Where/When Is The Book Sale?

Increase your Inbox Happiness by 98%!

Is that even possible? I don't know, but there exists a group of Xobnis working on a secret project that they say will deliver exactly that.

Xobni outlook add-in for your inbox

If you think you'd like to be among the first to be let in on the secret, then follow the link above and ask. By the way, VentureBeat says that Xonbi has an "email me instead" app that allows for Facebook users to get notified outside of Facebook instead of inside.

psst! Xobni is inbox spelled backwards.
