LILLIAN CROOK: WildDakotaWoman — Red Oak House Book Sale

Difficult as it may be to believe, Red Oak House is holding a book sale June 2, starting at 9 a.m.

A couple of winters back, I cataloged our collection and culled about 200 books, mostly duplicates as well as books we’ve read that don’t fit in the scope of our permanent collection. For a while, I toyed with the idea of selling these online, but I don’t want to have to deal with issues like sales tax and such, not to mention that I have much better things to do with my time, like writing the book we are working on!

Our friends Ken Rogers and Kevin Carvell are going to add some of their books to the sale, so there should be some real treasures — that is, if we don’t buy all of these from each other before we open for business. (Could happen!)

So please stop by, under the spreading branches of the champion Red Oak Tree next Saturday at 920 Arthur Drive in Bismarck. Linger to admire the flower beds if you wish. Sip on a cup of cold lemonade.

Help your fellow bookworms make room on our shelves for new books. You’ll be doing a good deed.

    What a great idea. I would be there if not for a prior commitment (to myself) to participate in a15k trail run at Ft Lincoln that morning. Maybe I’ll be finished by 9am.

      Yikes! 15 k is a long way. Sale goes all day, Laura.

    I just heard from the inimitable Kevin Carvell of Mott “Am bringing 500-plus books, magazines, brochures, almost all dealing with some facet of ND — biographies, novels, government documents, school annuals, etc. ” You do NOT want to miss Saturday’s sale!
