Seforim Sale: Night 1
I got to the Seforim Sale after 10pm and quickly found my contact there, whom I had not previously met in person. The sale was moved to the first floor of Belfer this year and is set up very nicely. It is very easy to find books and there is plenty of staff walking around and offering assistance.
So, of course, I looked around to find my books. R. Daniel Feldman's book is upfront on the YU table, next to R. Aharon Lichtenstein's. R. Nosson Slifkin's books are prominently displayed and, from what I heard, selling quickly. R. Eli Schochet's book The Hasidic Movement and the Gaon of Vilna is in the English language Kabbalah/Hassidus section and is priced really cheap. You will never find it this cheap anywhere else.
After a lot of searching, with help, we determined that the Salanter books were not out on the tables. Hopefully, they will be out by tomorrow night. Because of the late hour and the long search for the Salanter book, I did not check on R. Yehuda Henkin's books. His newest volume of responsa (Bnei Banim 4) is available at the sale.
I will, IY"H be back at the sale tomorrow night and will be checking on Bnei Banim then.
