Bookstock 2018


I just read today that 80% of U.S. families did not buy a book in 2017.  (source)

If you read just 15 minutes a day, in a year you will have read about one million words. 

Think about the impact that has on your child, their ability to understand text and develop concepts about the world around them.  


Reading every day is important!  Modeling good reading behaviors is important. 

If you are in need of some fresh books to add to your library, Bookstock is the perfect event for you.  Bookstock will be offering unbelievable deals on used books and media Sunday, April 22 through Sunday, April 29 at Livonia’s Laurel Park Place. And the bonus is that proceeds will benefit literacy and education projects in metropolitan Detroit.
Bookstock’s Pre-Sale will kick-off on Sunday, April 22 at 8:15 a.m. There is a $20 admission charge for the Pre-Sale only, which runs through 11 a.m. The Pre-Sale Event offers savvy shoppers and collectors first crack at Bookstock’s treasure trove of bargains.
