Bookish folk to the front. The massive bi-annual Lifeline Bookfest is coming back this summer, where you can score secondhand books for as little as $2.50.
The event will take place from Saturday, January 13 to Sunday, January 21 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.
Be spoilt for choice, with several rows 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.
Doors open at 8.30am every day except for opening day (7:30am) and as our saying goes, the early bird gets the book they didn’t know they wanted.
