It Lifeline Bookfest time again!
But I’ll admit, my heart wasn’t in it as much as in past years. You come to a point where there just isn’t enough space in the house for random books. You have to become very particular about what titles you give a home to.
I know. You can’t believe what you are reading can you.
Still I couldn’t bring myself to not attend so I dragged the whole family there just have a little look around.
Of course we had to come home with something…well a few bags of somethings. 🙂
There were changes at the sales this year. They removed all of the children’s books from the priced section and divided them out between the other two sections. In some cases it made it cheaper but it most cases it made it more expensive. Oh and ALL of the books in the priced section were $2.50, making the books in that section a lot more expensive.
So what did we spend Hubby’s hard earned cash on?
Computer books galore for Ethan
Several Science experiment titles
A smattering of faith and parenting titles
A new mini thesaurus since our current one is from when I was in grade 7
A few interesting looking read alouds – Aussie and Disaster focused mostly
A Mind Map book – I would have liked all of these but didn’t see any others
A couple of interesting animal titles
A book on how to play chess
The Essential 55 – read and enjoyed this book ages ago and decided it could have a space on my shelf
Some mind candy for Brayden
Some Franklin books we didn’t already own
and a book about the Chinese New Year.
I had a whole pile of other faith books in my ‘considering’ pile but when I googled their kindle price, it was much cheaper to buy them new as an ebook than second hand at the sales. Did I have ponder for long whether I wanted the print version or ebook version? Interestingly enough no. My preference was for the kindle version. How about that! I know. Wash my mouth out with soap but it’s true. Even book lovers are slowing turning on the printed book. How will the Lifeline Bookfests survive?
