Sacrificing Personal Space for Books

Returning back to the library book sale on Sunday, bag day, I came away with some good finds despite crowds. You absolutely have to forego any sense of personal space to do this. The good news is that I don't think I'm competing with too many people on the books I'm looking for, and the professionals were mostly absent this time.
