McGill Book Fair
If you're a serious hunter or collector you'll need to get in line early. The book dealers will start lining up at dawn for the 1pm opening, and no matter how far in advance I arrived, there was always a book dealer parked in a lawn chair in front of me. While this annoyed me a little, it also reminded me just how much it was worth checking this event out.
My first objective at this fair is to pick up hardcovers for my reference library at a very fair price, but more recently I've also had some good scores when hunting for bookplates in the discount bins. All in all it's well worth the visit, and I'll be taking a day off next week to drop in and do some shopping. Perhaps I'll see you there!
