It's that time of the year again.  Melbourne Cup Weekend.   So much going on that it's hard to decide what to go to, and where to visit.

Here's a suggestion for book lovers everywhere.   Get your maps out and plan a visit to Ferny Creek in the Dandenongs.   It's less than an hour east of the CBD.   It's beautiful up here at this tme of the year (in fact it's always beautiful!) and there is so much to do, should you decide to spend the entire weekend in this part of the world.  There are restaurants to drool over and opportunities for great photos around every bend.

Meryll from Rainy Day Books has been busy arranging the Mountains of Books Bookfair at Ferny Creek Recreation Hall opposite the Sherbrooke Forest.  There is ample parking wth playground and picnic facilities on the site.   Free entry, and there's wheelchair access.   Great food is planned for this year's event.

There's be book covering demonstrations and workshops on Saturday (bookings essential by ringing Meryll at 9762 0862) for using recycled books as Christmas Decorations.  

Don't miss out.   Make sure you have a carton or two in the car ready to collect your special book "finds".   There'll be plenty to choose from amongst the thousands of used and out-of-print titles, including an eclectic range of fiction and non-fiction titles and collectibles in genres such as children's books, cookery, art, fashion, Australiana, gardening and militaria.
