If you like books and find shopping at, say, that big glossy one at the Grove unbearable, you can consider today a good day.

A new bookstore, Sandpaper Books in Highland Park, is having a pre-opening sale all day, from 10-5pm. It's got used books in the strong-lefty tradition (so we hear). It's also got a pile of silk saris from India, just for fun & fashion. There should be coffee and snacks too.

When that's over the Alternative Holiday Book Bazaar is on at the Wax Poetic Gallery in Burbank (5-9pm). Now in its second year, they've found that a keg of Stella and a bunch of small presses make a good holiday mix. Art too. Free.

We're sure there are other book events on but once we get to the one with the beer, we'll be staying put.
