- Take a shopping basket (preferable with wheels), a massive Ikea bag or something similar to carry all your purchases. While last year boxes were provided it can get very tiresome and awkward carrying around a big box of books.
- Go Early!!! No matter what day you choose to visit (though weekdays is probably preferable) try and get there first thing in the morning. Just remember the later you go, the more people will be lined up at the register and trust me, no one is just buying one book so each transaction can be quite long.
- Kids optional! Last year I took my kids with me, but not this year. It is so busy, so big and honestly my kids were well over the experience before I had really even started! If you are going to take the kids I would definitely go with another adult so they can take the kids out for some fresh air and refreshments.
- Lastly, if your a big book lover allow yourself a lot of time. I love browsing at book shops and I could have stayed at this sale for hours!
