Today was the first day of the annual Mountains Of Books Bookfair in Ferny Creek in the Dandenongs. The book fair also continues tomorrow.
Last year I picked up some great books so I was pretty optimistic on my return. My parents, my wife and I arrived just after 10am and to our amazement the carpark was almost full.
Inside the hall there appeared to be more book stalls than last year and plenty of other bibliophiles. There were also heaps of good quality books.
We scoured each stall and managed to find a number of Bond books including the ones below (yes, this is a whole box of Bonds!).
And these books at another stall...
So after we had spent about an hour at the fair I purchased these three hardbacks. I didn't previously own a copy of "The Man Who Saved Britain", however the other two are doubles. The book club edition on the right is nicer than my existing copy while "The Spy Who Loved Me" is an ex-library 5th or 6th printing that has a really nice dust jacket. All three were too good (and cheap) to refuse.
So if you've got a spare couple of hours tomorrow why not visit the Mountains Of Books Bookfair in Ferny Creek. As you can see there's still plenty of Bond books available as well as hundreds of other fiction and non-fiction books ranging from Australiana to steam trains to children's books and everything in-between.
