Brisbane Books - Lifeline @Bookfest - huge second hand book sale - on now till January 24th

The Lifeline Bookfest opened yesterday at the Convention Centre in Merivale St, South Brisbane, and it runs till Sunday January 24th. It's an enormous second-hand book sale which happens twice a year and it's about the best way to get your hands on second-hand books in Brisbane.

This photo by flickr user Talisen gives you an idea of just how big the booksale is. The bookfest is on from 8.30am to 5pm on weekdays and from 8.30am to 8pm on weekends. If you're on Twitter you can follow the Lifeline bookfest there, or you can friend them on Facebook.

The Bookfest is at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Merivale St, South Brisbane - click here for a Google Map. The best way to get there by public transport is to either catch a train to the South Brisbane station or a bus to the Cultural Centre busway station - the Google Map shows both these stations.
