Clunes Booktown

We drove to Clunes on Saturday morning for their annual Back to Booktown second-hand book fair. Clunes is a perfectly preserved gold-rush town. It was alive with bookish types browsing and buying every type of book imaginable. From vintage children's books to the latest paperback novels to collector's edition travelogues from the 19th century. There was also literary events with authors speaking about their work, although unfortunately I didn't attend any - it's a little tricky with a small girl in tow! So, if you're a book lover, mark the first weekend in May in your diaries for 2011!
