State Library of WA discard book sale in Kalgoorlie
Went to the State Library's book sale "here all weekend" in Kalgoorlie. Opens later on ANZAC Day. [Dawn Service maybe for us.]
The choice does not seem as wonderful as last time, needs thoughtful picking over. Also you need to go over the three days as new 'stock' is put out each day.
