Another year has passed, meaning the first of the Lifeline Bookfests is here! From January 14, to January 26, you can find literally millions of books here in Brisbane. I went on the opening day (braving the crowds), and managed to find a lovely selection of books for myself, and the rest of my family as well. This year the haul added to a grand total of 44 books, which I think is quite impressive. Nothing on last year’s 90, of course, but still enough to be asking for a new bookshelf.
Here’s a picture of the collection. I found lots of Robin Hobb books, a Diana Wynne Jones one, and even found a few of the original hardcover Harry Potters. We’ve started a collection. And of course, you can’t leave the Bookfest without a heap of individual books that caught your eye while there. So, if you’re in the area, don’t hesitate to go have a look. It’s awesome!! And if you aren’t in Brisbane, there are bookfests/fairs across Australia, and probably around the world as well. Keep your eyes peeled for these sort of events, because they are amazing, and all for a good cause as well. What could be better?
