Shopping the Cookbook Aisles of the Big Book Sale

As Joe Eskenazi mentioned yesterday on the Snitch, SFoodie's sister blog, today is the first official day of the Friends of the Public Library's annual Big Book Sale at Fort Mason. This year brings more books and more days: It will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and on Sunday ― aka $1 day ― from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A devoted Friends of the Public Library sale-goer, both here and in Seattle, I hit the sale at lunch today, finding crowded parking lots and tables ringed by semi-obsessive book shoppers. (The truly obsessive showed up last night for the members-only preview sale.)
