Bookish folk to the front. The massive bi-annual Lifeline Bookfest is back this month, where you can score secondhand books for as little as $2.50.
Be spoilt for choice, with two massive halls and a total of 4.5km of book tables to browse from. Don’t forget to bring your bags and backpacks to fill with books (or a suitcase depending on how big you expect your haul to be).
The Lifeline Bookfest caters to all tastes and genres. From Children’s books to Classics, to Australiana, History and Genre Fiction as well as Hobbies and Gardening, Cooking and Economics, and books in other languages too, there are words on pages for everyone.
Book sale profits from the fair will go towards the support of Lifeline’s 24hr Crisis Support Line, so you’ll be helping save lives with your new books.
The event takes place from Saturday, January 14 to Sunday, January 22 for a whopping nine days of sales. Books, as well as all other reading material and CDs and DVDs, will be replenished every day for your perusing pleasure.
Doors open at 8:30am every day except for opening day (7:30am) and as the saying goes, the early bird gets the book they didn’t know they wanted.
Reminder: The Lifeline Bookfest is cashless so remember to bring your card.
