Buy a bag of books at Habitat used book sale

Julia's Cafe & Books, 1133 N.Wendover Road, holds a Book Tent Sale 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22. For $25, you can get as many used books as you can stuff into one of Julia's tote bags, which is provided with purchase.

Julia's, as you may know, is part of Habit for Humanity Charlotte, so proceeds go to a good cause -- providing families with affordable housing. It's selling more than 7,000 books of just about every genre, including many for children and young readers.

On Saturday, in addition to the sale, Julia's holds a fall festival, which means popcorn, apple cider and family-friendly activities.
