It's on again. Lifeline Bookfest. Love the feeling of hundreds of books pre-loved and crowded into a massive shed waiting for a new home.
Two things I especially love... the books are cheap enough, and have already served some of their purpose, so I can give them guilt free to my kids who don't always show books the respect they deserve.
...and the books are unique and quirky and pot-luck!
I will, however, be hunting for some more of my favourites (other than the given Dick Bruna and Miffy books and the illusive Julie Vivas Nativity...).
I'm a sucker for a good Annual;
I love the illustrations and repetitive text in the old school Readers;
and I have been enjoying reading the old-fashioned Uncle Aurtur's Bedtime Stories (try to get the Comedy Company image out of your head...) to the kids at , well, bedtime.
Say g'day if you pass me in the aisles...
What will you be hunting for?
