The annual Save the Children Fund book sale is on now at Winthrop Hall at the University of Western Australia. We went this afternoon and enjoyed rummaging through the huge collection of second hand books that have been pre-sorted into fiction, history, health, fitness, cook books, children, Australiana and lots of other categories.
We picked up an almost new copy of Parisians An Adventure History of Paris by Graham Robb who has come up with a novel way of writing about this wonderful city. His only slightly fictionalised accounts of historical places and figures make for interesting reading.
The book sale continues until Wednesday 20 August.
