Mountains of Books

Used, rare & out-of-print book fair
Ferny Creek in the Yarra Ranges

November 3rd and 4th 2012 
Add this to your diary now!

Mountains of Books, the annual bookfest organised by second-hand and specialist booksellers from the Yarra Ranges and beyond, will be held on the weekend of November 3rd and 4th, 2012.

Since Mountains of Books was first held five years ago the book trade has undergone huge changes, with Kindles and iPads now a large component of the new book market. However the thrill of a secondhand find is not part of the ebook revolution. Because of the paperless reading revolution, regional bookfairs continue to attract crowds of booklovers, enthused by the adventure of chasing an elusive title, reclaiming childhood favourites, or simply picking up holiday reading at a good price – books you don’t have to stop reading when the aircraft starts its descent.

With this in mind, Mountains of Books will continue to champion traditional bookselling by bringing together a dozen knowledgeable and friendly booksellers offering thousands of used and out-of-print titles, including an eclectic range of fiction and non-fiction titles including collectibles in genres such as children’s books, cookery, art, fashion, Australiana, gardening and militaria.

Mountains of Books will held in Ferny Creek, less than an hour east of the CBD, in a picturesque setting opposite Sherbrooke Forest, with ample parking, playground and picnic facilities on site. The tourist meccas of Sassafras and Olinda are a short drive away.

Special Note:  Donna Williams, Performer, Poet and Motivator will be attending.
