Put these dates in your diary: Melbourne Cup weekend, November 2 and 3, 2013.
Mountains of Books 2013
[ADVERT]A book-lover's dream excursion must be to the sixth annual Mountains of Books Fair at Ferny Creek in the beautiful Yarra Ranges, this year being held on 2nd and 3rd November 2013.
Less than an hour east of Melbourne, Ferny Creek sits in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges environment. The book fair will be held in the Ferny Creek Recreational Reserve Hall in Hilton Road, Ferny Creek (Melways map 75 D1), opposite Sherbrooke Forest, well known for its unique flora, fauna and birdlife. The hours will be 10.00am - 4.00pm both days.
The fair, which is organised by secondhand and special booksellers from The Basin and Kallista, has become well known around the state and visitors travel from interstate to enjoy the thrill of adding to their book collections. With thousands of books to choose from, including used, rare, hard-to-find and out-of-print, there will be many to suit every visitor. Bring plenty of bags to carry your purchases home.
The Mountains of Books Fair will again offer fiction, non-fiction, vintage and collectibles, Australiana, fashion, gardening, art, cookery, militaria, children's books and even possibly out-of-print books, so this opportunity mustn't be missed.
