Witch and chips for my tea!

Today I went to check out the annual Kingsmead Book Fair in Rosebank, now in its fourth year running. The first time I went was two years ago, and I was astounded by how much it's grown in such a short period of time. The school grounds were literally bursting at the seams with hungry bibliophiles of all shapes, sizes and persuasions. From tiny tots to octogenarians, and everything in between, there was something for everyone; a veritable smörgåsbord of food, books, and entertainment. My only gripe was not being able to access the free wi-fi, but otherwise the organisation and facilities were flawless. A phenomenal experience indeed.

The Gruffalo was a huge hit in the kiddies section

This is a highly recommended day out for the whole family. Put it in your diary for 2016!
