Sorry, Printers Row Lit Fest...

...but your festival happens to fall on the same weekend (June 8-10) as an event that is much more local and important to me, the Will County Book Recycling. There, just across town, not only will I unload my never-to-be-reread, less-than-essential books, but also bring home a whole new batch of books, for free. And without enduring a two-hour round trip, paying for parking, fighting crowds and facing the possible monsoon-like storms that hit Printers Row so often. Prior year Book Recycling recaps are here, here, here and here. Though I've read only a minority of the books I've brought home so far, there are very few that I've given up on and want to re-recycle.
