June 11. Day 163. Throw me a Lifeline
A book is great on the beach or by the pool or filling in time on public transport. A book is very good in bed providing great action between the covers.
Yep, I love books and even though I consider myself a bit of a gadget girl I am very old school when it comes to books. I need an object to put on the bookshelf and I need to be able to turn pages and fold down corners.
So today, for the second time this year, I was at a Lifeline Bookfest at the Convention Centre stocking up. I do confess, however, I haven't read a single page of the books I bought at the event in January but I will, eventually.
On a rainy public holiday there were large crowds working their way through the millions of second hand books on sale. I loved the number of parents stocking up on kids books often with the little ones "helping".
Today's picture is of Emily who was helping mum Monica choose some new bedtime stories.
