Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

Bargain Central: No pre-loved book over $2
"No books over $2".

Is that not a headline to suck you in?

The Capalaba Rotary Club is holding a Bookfest at the Cleveland Scout Den, where no books will cost over $2. There will be pre-loved adult fiction, children's books, puzzles and games from which to choose and all children under 2 years of age will receive a FREE book.

The Club even has a dedicated book storage shed on-site, where locals are able to return any books for recycling purposes. The event is one of Capalaba Rotary Club's regular fundraisers with proceeds supporting Youth Literacy and Youth Development. This year restrictions will be implemented making this a COVID safe event.

Add these dates to your diary if you too are in dire need of a stash of bargain books :

Friday - October 23rd : 1pm to 5pm
Saturday - October 24th : 8am to 4pm
Sunday - October 25th : 8am to 12 noon.

Entry is FREE which allows for the purchase of more books.

The Cleveland Scout Den is located at the corner of Bainbridge and Gordon Streets, Ormiston. If you really want to make an outing of it, factor in a coffee at Elaine's Cafe across the road.
