You will literally drown in a sea of words at the Book Bazaar's Half Price March Sale. The Spine and Limb Foundation receive several thousand books a week, and have hundreds of thousands of good quality books for sale, donated by the State Library of Western Australia.
The State Library's operations fall into three main areas – collecting and preserving Western Australia's documentary heritage, general reference and public lending library services, and supporting the public library network in Western Australia
Imagine the diversity of good quality books that will be available.
Where else could you find such a large number of quality books, and multitudes of titles (perhaps a few unique hidden treasures) at half price? You do not need to imagine what lies in the vaults of the State Library, just pop into the Book Bazaar's extended hours, half-price book sale.
Have you ever walked through your library wishing you could keep a favourite book? Well now you can, at Book Bazaar's half price March book sale.
A book should never die or even fade away
Mine, mine, all mine
A book I borrowed numerous times had served its life and was to be retired.
Where does a retired book go? Well, the Library presented it to me (after all, it was on my shelf as much as theirs). As long as there is a reader, no book need be retired. Having faithfully served their purpose as loan books, they are now ready for a permanent home.
No need to settle for half a book, when you can have a full book at Book Bazaar's 'Extended Hours' half price book sale.
One of Australia's most loved writers, P.L. Travers penned this perceptive quote. Don't know her? Think Julie Andrews. Still not sure? Then think Mary Poppins.
Plenty of time to browse in this book lovers paradise
A word to the wise: if you spot that treasure, grab it. Many years ago, browsing at a bookstall I glanced through an early ornate edition of 'Ben Hur'. Undecided, I put it down, intending to return after a bit of a think. You guessed it: 'Gone With The Wind'.
All books are clearly marked but I expect the serious browser will just follow their nose
When you get to 10 Selby Street, turn off into a little (privately owned, by Spine & Limb Foundation) road called Ellis Griffiths Avenue. The ParaQuad building is about 300 metres along Ellis Griffiths Avenue.
Large banners, placed out on Selby Street for a week before the event, ensure even the casual driver will not miss the turn off.
