Friday morning I got up in the predawn hours, donned my bestest 'kick-ass sale' attire (redback boots, stretchy pants, loose top, manic expression) and headed over the hills and far away (well, over the Brown Mountain to Canberra - around 250km or a 3hr drive away)
It was time for the biannual Lifeline Book Fair
Here's (part of) the haul this time......
Ahhh - I love the Book Fair! (ahhh I love the bigger hauling power of my new-old Subaru Forester!)
This time I think I snaffled the entire collection of old Readers Digest atlases..... got a few old bird/plant/shell books, Children's Brittanica, a hardback series on Australian gardening and loads more..... the kiddies were chuffed with a great newish set of childcraft encyclopaedias (with great colourful covers - just the thing for the school holidays that are now upon us at Sams Creek)
I looked longingly at a 1890s set of Encyclopaedia Brittanica...... but it was worth more than my entire haul!
This bookfair closes today... and the next one is March 2011...... (I'm dreaming new booky dreams already)
