FEW President, Julia Maeda, notes: "Come warm up a wintry Saturday, clear some space in your home and find books, CDs and DVDs you've been searching for. Add in warm conversation, hot drinks and a scrumptious brownie, and it's the perfect way to enjoy your Saturday afternoon!"

Bookoff will sell most Japanese books, art books in some languages, language study books and recent travel guides. They will only accept Region 2 DVDs and most CDs. DVDS and CDs should be in their cases. They do not accept videotapes. All other items can be swapped with others or taken home, including periodicals, booklets and journals.
