REDDING, Calif. - There was a special treat in Redding this weekend for book lovers because of the ‘Friends of the Library’ bimonthly book sale at the Redding Library.

At least 4,000 donated books and books that can no longer circulate in the library were on sale for just 50 cents.

And out of those books, 1,200 were sold leading to believe the Kindle hype may be on its way out.

“In fact, I’ve read statistics that say that the E-book phenomena has leveled out. People are back to paper books, the E-books did not work for them. I have a Kindle and for some occasions the Kindle is fine, but having a book in your hand is wondering it can’t be beat,” said Barbara Lorentz, a member of ‘Friends of the Library.’

The ‘Friends of the Library’ say the proceeds of the sale will go to buy more books for the library including New York Times bestsellers. The next book sale will be on June 2.
