This week Booktopia left a box of books on my doorstep,
which is a wonderful way to start our week.
No, not out of the goodness of their hearts.
I’d followed a book link and stumbled upon a book clearance sale
and found a number of quality books quite heavily discounted.
In my bundle of goodies I had:
“The Wreck of the Zanzibar”
because anything Michael Morpurgo is excellent.
because, once again, it was authored by Michael Morpurgo
and because it was a children’s picture book about an artist.
because this series of books is wonderful
and we don’t already own this title in the series.
“Ocean Commotion: Caught in the Currents”
because it looked fascinating.
And finally two books from the same series, “Great Names”.
I bought “Socrates”
because you rarely see children’s books about him,
because we are currently studying China.
All of these goodies cost me less than $50
I love a book bargain.
(Don’t panic my US friends. That’s super cheap in Australia.)
And I believe the Brisbane Lifeline Bookfest is on this week too.
