On Saturday my friend and I went to the Lifeline Bookfest! It’s a charity book sale held in two halls of the Convention Centre, with millions of books at either $1 or $2.50, plus a section of slightly higher priced high quality books. We hauled home my 19 books, plus my friend’s similar number on a bus. Going on public transport was a poor decision on our part. Our fingers, arms and shoulders were incredibly sore by the time we made it home, but it was completely worth it!
As Ron Weasley’s prophecy states, “You’re gonna suffer… but you’re gonna be happy about it.”
Now I just have to find a space on my shelves for all these gems…
What books have you bought this week? What are your favourite charity sales?
