Anitra Hardeman wheeled around a cart full of books at The Old Book Sale on Thursday, March 1. She said her and her son, Derek Hardeman, have attended the book sale every year since it began.

“I love it!” she said.

Anitra said she keeps a notebook with a list of all of the books she owns in it. She said she brings the notebook to the sale every year so that she can decide which books she needs to buy.

Anitra and Derek sat down after rummaging through the books at the sale to record all of the dozens of books they were going to buy.

Derek said he loves coming to the sale every year.

“One year I had the flu, and I still came,” he said.
