On Thursday, Aug. 20th Tonari Gumi held its annual used Japanese Book and Rummage Sale. It was a great success with many customers lining up at the door prior to its start. With the departure of most of the Japanese book stores from the Lower Mainland, it has become very difficult for those seeking a variety of books written in Japanese. As a service to the community, Tonari Gumi has been holding its used Japanese book sale for many years and it is a very popular event.
This year, we were particularly successful in receiving donations of many nearly new books and we have decided to offer a number of them for sale on an on-going basis. So if you have a craving to read a real Japanese book, not an electronic version of one, you need to come to Tonari Gumi and check out our offerings! Hard backs are $2.00 each and soft backs are $1.00 each with discounts for purchases of 5 books or more and if you are a TG member.
