Bookstock Michigan's Largest Used Book & Media Sale

Bookstock Michigan's Largest Used Book & media sale, books, metro detroit, Livonia
This blog post is sponsored. All opinions are 100% my own. #BookstockMI

I grew up ten minutes from Laurel Park mall where the most massive book and media sale took place every year! I attended for years, and it gradually grew bigger and bigger. Now I live in Macomb County, but I'm still willing to hop in my van and attend this fantastic event.

You see, I love to read. I love escaping, learning, growing and becoming a better person just because I read a book. Books can change your life. If you claim you're not a reader well, I hate to tell you, but you haven't met the right book yet! 

The moment you arrive at BookStock Michigan's largest used book & media sale the soft scent of a tangible book will consume your senses. Yes, I have a Kindle, but there is nothing like being able to write in and underline things that you want to remember. I just came home from vacation, and I was totally bummed that I didn't buy a physical book so I could write in it. Well, you won't have this problem when you attend Bookstock!
