Books for ev­ery­one

The Bay Chronicle - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORTER

Get your skates on book lovers, there’s a world of sec­ond hand books up for grabs at the an­nual Waipapa Ro­tary Book Fair.

Ro­tar­ian Ge­off Til­ley says there are lit­er­ally thou­sands of books for sale, which means there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one.

There’s even a book on 1925 Bri­tish Do­min­ions Ex­ams in The­ory of Mu­sic, Pianoforte and Elo­cu­tion, he says.

‘‘You would be ab­so­lutely amazed at the huge breadth of ti­tles we get do­nated’’.

This year’s book fair is at Bay Sports, Har­mony Lane Waipapa on Au­gust 4 from 2-8pm and Au­gust 5 from 9am-2pm.

There are fic­tion and non­fic­tion­books on just about ev­ery sub­ject you can imag­ine, Til­ley says, in for­eign lan­guages, tech­ni­cal and pic­to­rial, fic­tion by the thou­sands and a mas­sive col­lec­tion of books for chil­dren.

‘‘Many peo­ple spend hours rum­mag­ing through the books look­ing for that spe­cial book whilst oth­ers just can’t re­sist and end up buy­ing arm­fuls to keep their book­worm at bay,’’ he says.

‘‘At just $3 per book and only $1 per book for chil­dren’s books it’s time to keep the whole fam­ily happy and read­ing through the win­ter.’’

All pro­ceeds from the book sales go to­wards Waipapa Ro­tary’s com­mu­nity projects.
