Yesterday was a public holiday here and I went to the Lifeline Bookfest with Jasmine. I've a gone few times over the years and I love it! Soon, Jasmine and I were holding many books (our arms were hurting from lugging them around to each section).
Tables full of books. This is just one section.
This is everything I bought.
I'm collecting old children's books with pretty illustrations. At first I was going to cut them up to make envelopes but I don't have the heart to do that anymore.
I thought I would start collecting the Baby-Sitters Club books again (I had a lot growing up but gave them away). These are a few of the books I read when I was younger so nostalgia set in. And I thought I would collect them for my future daughter :)
Some paperback novels I thought would be great to read. A Wrinkle in Time, The Handmaid's Tale, StarGirl and Something Borrowed have been on my wish list. The others will also be good to read.
And I adore hand bound books like this. To be honest I really bought them for the covers though I'm sure I will read them. Some Charles Dickens and Gone with the Wind Volume 1 and 2.
We have so much fun rummaging through the books and spent a few hours there. I know I will go to the next bookfest and keep collecting my Baby Sitters Club books (I will need to list what I have). Plus this all goes to Charity (Lifeline). Charity and books is a winning combination.
Have a fantastic week!
