Hobart Book Village Three-day sale will attract many seeking great deals on used books on all subjects and interests. All Main Street bookshops will offer most books at significantly reduced prices enabling collectors, dealers, book enthusiasts, students, children and casual readers to walk away with a sizable bounty.  Hobart, NY (May 1) - The Hobart Book Village will hold its very popular semi-annual used book sale over the Memorial Day Weekend, beginning Saturday, May 23rd, and continuing Sunday, May 24th and Monday, May 25th. Hours of operation on Saturday and Sunday run from 10am through 6 pm and on Monday from 10 am through 3 pm. Almost all books in all shops are offered for this sale, with the exception being books on consignment or in special reserve.  The sale terms are as follows:  Books $10 and under are 50% off the marked store price and books over $10.00 are discounted 30%. With books already reasonably priced this means that everyone can take advantage of  these savings. It is for this reason that dealers and collectors travel from far and wide to scoop up treasures, and book lovers, students and children can stock up on "new" reading material to see them through the summer months.  Details can be found on www.hobartbookvillage.com For the past few years, the Hobart Book Village located along Main Street, Hobart, State Route 10, and its extended bookselling neighbors in South Kortright and Delhi hold a big sale weekend to help kick off the beginning summer and end with a similar sale during the Thanksgiving Day Weekend.  These sales are of great interest to anyone who loves to read and appreciates a bargain in the process. This year, the Hobart Book Village will feature four Main Street bookshops taking part in the sale.   They are: Wm. H. Adams' Antiquarian Book Shop, the Hobart International Bookport, Blenheim Hill Books and Liberty Rock Books.  For the most part, each shop specializes in certain genres and subjects, but shoppers will be delighted to find additional items of interest such as original artwork & prints, photographs, postcards, and local history materials. "It is a wonderful experience." says Diana Adams, co-owner with husband Bill of the Adams' Antiquarian Book Shop. "Each sale you see familiar faces, rekindle friendships and greet newcomers who just want to see what all the excitement is about".  The shops spend the preceding months stocking their shelves with recent acquisitions as they are keenly aware that everyone is on the hunt for something seldom seen, different or unusual. This philosophy is the cornerstone of the Hobart International Bookport, whose owner, Elda Stifani specializes in varied literature and materials on a global scale. It is variety in stock that seems to attract the diverse crowds. Anyone say not looking for 18th-Century History offered by the Adams' shop, or Scouting Books from the early 1900s as found at Liberty Rock Books can find recent Fiction and Biographies at  Blenheim Hill Books.  It is especially refreshing that the Book Village concept offers a tremendous opportunity for book lovers in an ever dwindling world of small-town bookshops. In addition to the sale, local artist/illustrator/author D. Michael Price will be exhibiting his recent artwork as well be on hand Saturday, May 23 to sign copies of his latest book.  The signing and exhibition takes place inside the shop of Liberty  Rock Books. "We are pleased to have Mr. Price join our special event." says John Mahoney of Liberty Rock Books. "Illustration is so deeply rooted with the book trade that it is really fitting to have a talent like his physically on site reaching out and connecting with readers and art lovers." Two other local bookshops participating in the weekend sale are Bibliobarn in South Kortright, NY and the Steinway Book Company in Delhi, NY. Those thinking of visiting Hobart Book Village for the sale are encouraged to come early for the best selections.  However, if that is not possible stopping by anytime should still prove to be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
