    Friends of the Library, Mount Prospect, IL

    There is a sale coming up for the Friends of the (Mount Prospect, IL) Library where they have great prices on used books. I would not normally mention this but in the last couple of weeks two estates have donated an unusually large quantity of military history books which might be of particular interest to our community. The library also recently purged their Science Fiction and Fantasy section so, if you do not mind owning former library books, there are hundreds of hardbacks of this genre fiction for sale at $1.00 each and pocket paperbacks for $0.25. The sale takes place on April 17th, 18th and 19th, but Friday evening is reserved for members. You can however choose to become a member and pay a $5 fee at the door which covers you for all four sales in the year (not the calendar year but from when you sign up until one year later). Some prefer to be there on Friday because a number of \"dealers\" who buy and resell on eBay or through bookstores do so, though there are plenty of great deals all weekend. The address is on the website -

    I have also been asked, because of my own interest in hobby gaming, to put a number of the specialized books online through my eBay store. These have specifically to do with military miniatures and model building, so feel free to have a look -

    If I didn\'t live 5 Hours away, I would definately check this out.

    Rather cool idea to post this here.

    Thanks. Hopefully those who are further away might find some use in the ebay books on model building and miniature painting.

    If you need another reason to visit the library in Mount Prospect, there\'s the hobby shop Games Plus that has a really large selection of miniatures and paints. The last time I was there I spent waaaaaaay too much money... but that seems to be a pattern I follow at every hobby shop.

    Indeed. Games Plus is one of the finest game stores in the country. Living five blocks from there has made me a happy but poor man. :)
