Balfour Books Half Priced Sale - Reason to Play Hooky!

Just as the winter doldrums seem to be dragging on a little bit longer than they should, Balfour decides to brighten up the world by selling all of it's books at half-price. In the past, the sale has lasted for four days, but this year they've extended the sale for a full week. It's enough to lift any of us out of our bout of seasonal affective disorder and with all the money we save...

I used to spend a LOT of time there when I lived in the neighbourhood. It is one of the last general interest used book stores in Toronto with over 20,000 titles.

Paul just lives at the other end of the street, but I think he's off on his travels for March Break with the kids. I'm going to have to play hooky some time this week and go for a visit especially when the weather forecast has Toronto out of the sub-zero weather and into the teens later on in the week!

Save a tree...buy used books! Sale ends Friday March 16th.
