Please note this is the 2011 sales post.
Every year I eagerly anticipate word of the Penguin Putnam Publisher Warehouse sale. Basically this sale is held every year and it’s where Penguin sells remaindered books at LOW PRICES.
I just checked the Press And Sun Bulletin. Here’s what they have to say:
“The Penguin Group will hold its annual warehouse book sale Nov. 12 and 14 through 19 at the former Maines warehouse on Terrace Avenue in Conklin.
The sale runs from 1 to 8 p.m. Nov. 12, 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14 through 18, and 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 19. Thereâ€™s no entry fee and items are priced as low as $1. Cash and checks only will be accepted, and checks require two form of identification, including one photo ID.”
This is what is typically in the press release:
Thousands of titles available including Readerâ€™s Digest and DK
FICTION * NONFICTION *Â JUVENILE
HARDCOVERS * PAPERBACKS * AUDIO
PRICED AS LOW AS $1.00
No entry fee
Cash and checks only â€“ NO credit cards
(Checks require two forms of ID, including 1 photo ID)

Interstate 81 Northbound: Make a left off exit 1. Go .8 miles to light at Conklin Rd. Make right turn. Go 6.2 miles to Terrace Dr. and make left turn at large â€œFOR LEASEâ€ sign.
Interstate 81 Southbound: Take exit 3 to traffic light. Turn right to 2nd traffic light and turn left. Go over bridge to Conklin Rd. Turn right. Go .4 miles and turn right onto Terrace Dr. at large â€œFOR LEASEâ€ sign.
And if you are looking for an address to put in your GPS, I typically put in 1 Terrace Dr., Conklin and that pretty much takes me right to the sale.
I have tips for maximizing your sale experience here.
I’ve gone two years in a row to the sale and have never been disappointed. I’ve always come away with a large amount of books for a good price. I AM thinking that this year I want to focus more on buying books as gifts, but just want to say it’s totally worth your time and money.
Also, readers of my blog, expect a gianormous contest today. I know I’m innudating you with posts, but I have two days to make up for. PLUS I still have extra copies that I’ve purchased from previous sales for the purposes of being given away that I STILL haven’t given away, plus some ARCs that I gotta move to make space for new books.
Oh and for those still reading and curious as to what I’ve scored at the sale, BEHOLD MY HAULS:
