Can you ever have too many books? The answer is NO
Hands up all those who have read Green Eggs and Ham, either as a child, or to a child or grandchild? The words of the author Seuss have motivated the reluctant reader, inspired the uninspired and entertained the bored for over 60 years."You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book."

For all those in need of a book, Capalaba Rotary Club are holding their Spring Bookfest on the weekend of Friday, 25th of October through to Sunday, 27th October.

There will be thousands of preloved books for sale at bargain prices. Having spied many of the cartons of reading material that will be for sale, I can share that there are novels of all genres including romance, crime, and mystery fiction. The non-fiction titles are even more expansive covering military, history, health, travel, craft, cooking, gardening, biographies and the spiritual. There will also be a special section for books that have been turned into movies as well as DVDs.

Books, Books and more Books

News from the inside has that there will be even more children's books than in previous years. What was it that Dr Seuss said? "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child."

Proceeds will support the Rotary Club's Youth and Literacy Projects. These projects are ongoing with a dedicated Shed that enables locals to donate their books back via a hole-in-the-wall at any time. Not only is this convenient and environmentally friendly, but it also keeps the price of the books down.

You won't buy just one book, you'll be tempted to buy half a dozen, so take along a carry bag.

The Bookfest takes place during the following hours:

Friday, 25th October, 2019 1pm - 5pm
Saturday, 26th October, 2019 8am - 4pm
Sunday, 27th October, 2019 8am - 2pm

Entry is FREE.

And the other exciting news?

The Bookfest is being held at the newly completed Cleveland Scout Hall at the corner of Bainbridge and Gordon Streets, Ormiston. What a great opportunity to pick up some bargain books and have a walk through the new Scouts Den.
