Monster Book Fair

As in past years, our book fair will have literally thousands of books in a whole variety of genres on offer.

But this year, our book sorters have unveiled not only a host of popular and much read titles, but some some interesting ‘one offs’ that have piqued their interest!

“Killer Bras and other Hazards of the 50s” by cult author, Jan King is just one of these more attention-grabbing titles! On the book tables visitors to the Fair will also find titles like:

  • The Australian Dictionary of Insults and Vulgarities (which rates a 5 star read on Amazon!)
  • Knit Your Own Moustache (4 star rated – yes, seriously) and
  • Talk to the Hand-The Utter Bloody Rudeness of Everyday Life (a 3 ½ star must read by Lynne Truss).

But unlike Amazon, you can have them all for $1 each!

Club President, Stephen Yewdall explained “Hotels, Pubs & Inns of the Geelong Country District” is another interesting, and more historical title which could also double as travel plan for a weekend of touring our region’s most beautiful country towns”.

All this fun for so little money! Books at the Fair remain $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcovers. And there is an added bonus to your spend!

Proceeds of the Monster Book Fair will raise money for the Kokoda Youth Program, together with some other great causes both locally here in Geelong, and farther afield in Australia and the world.

So sitting back with some great books that you have purchased from the Monster Book Fair can also change the life of someone.

Mr Yewdall said:

Our Book Fair is a great way to stock up on your summer reading at great prices, and it has the added benefit of making a positive change in the lives of those in our community who might need our support, and that is a great thing.
