With more than 300,000 books, the Friends of the SFPL's Big Book Sale is a monster. Only problem: It's a monster, with demon lines and vicious elbowing from bargain-hunting trolls. And it's at Fort Mason, which is within walking distance of what neighborhoods? The Marina, Fisherman's Wharf, and that's it — and who lives at Fisherman's Wharf? But the Friends have more than 300,000 books to sell every year. Way more. And unload them they must, so on the second Saturday of each month they swing wide the doors at their new donation center, which opened last year and is six times the size of the old place, and nearly give away books at $1 each. Best part: It's in the Mission, where frugal bookbuyers are known to live and read. Make it your new monthly habit.
