Book Fest



Book Fest, yay it's my favourite time of year. Thousands upon thousands of cheap books. I have so many books on my shelves that need to be read but I just can't help my self when the prices are this cheap.


After the book fest I twisted Hubbies arm very, very tightly and we rode the Eye of Brisbane. I have been meaning to do it for a really long time. So I am glad that I can tick that off my list of thing to do.


We also went to the movies to see Puss in Boots, it was a OK movie. I would probably give it 7/10. I am going to see New Years Eve tonight, I have heard mixed reviews on it so I am not expecting much. How was your weekend?

Also I cant comment on some of your blogs the screen kind of freezes on a blank screen. Any ideas on how I can fix this or anyone else having the same problem. So dont think that I am being a snob is just blooger being a bitch to me.

I spy Cecilia Ahern, I've read all her books except The Gift and her latest which I just bought. The eye looks fun, I didn't get to go when we had one in Perth. x

We had a big book sale at my library in November and no one showed up! lol. The newspaper forgot to run the ad. We took everything to the local care center.

I've been having the same problem with trying to leave comments! I've wasted so much time on comments that I doubt have actually saved!!!!! Grr! It just freezes and goes no where! Really hoping yours is going to work! It seems ok for people's whose aren't embedded in their actual page!

I wish I had the time to read these days, I used to be such a book worm and a book fair like that would have been my idea of heaven!

Arielle said...

Oh wow! Bookfest sounds amazing! I would love to be around so many books. I'd go crazy and buy a ton.

Gracie said...

You got some great books! I wish I was able to find some of these. I'm definitely going back for another look because it's just too good to wait until the next one.

I love that you rode on the Eye of Brisbane.
