The final book fair of the Wellington season came early this year.
It also came with the usual trimmings: a bit of rain, a milling herd of rabid Wellington book fiends, a man with a microphone calling out directions and telling people to switch their cell phones on (honestly), and then, once through the long lines, it was time for a hot drink and a catch up with other hardy souls that had braved and survived the experience.
As per usual though, a few photos of the event.
Verdict: I actually ended up getting quite a few books at the Downtown Community Ministry book fair this year. Sure, it was at times a bit too overwhelming, and Microphone Man was expected but never really that welcome. Still, I have enough books to last me until the book fair season starts up in 2012, and that's the most important thing. 6.5 bags of books out of 10.
