TAI CHI. History. Animals. Gardening. Science. Film and popular culture.
Those were some of the interests the people browsing the book-laden tables at the Easter Book Fair on Good Friday shared with the Bendigo Advertiser.
With more than 40,000 books donated to the event, book fair coordinator Colin Lambie said there would be plenty to choose from throughout the four days.
The book fair started on Good Friday and runs until Easter Monday.
For many, the Y Service Club of Bendigo’s fundraiser is a highlight of the city’s Easter festival.
Book fair coordinator Colin Lambie said there was a “huge crowd” waiting for the doors to open at 9am on Friday.
“They had started forming the queue at 8am and by 9am it was quite a long queue,” he said.
Jaclyn Maddren said her three children, aged 7 and younger, loved books.
“Our kids, to be honest, don’t gravitate towards the digital,” she said.
Her son Flynn was hopeful of finding a novels from Anh Do’s series, WeirDo.
