bookworms hit bondi

On 31.01.10 Bondi Beach was not only the place to be for surfers, sunbathers, tourists and the like, but also for bookworms. For the celebration of Billy' s 30th birthday, IKEA set up a massive red Billy bookshelf on the beach for a giant book swap. The 30 red bookcases were filled with thousands of books which beachgoers can swap for one of their own or make a gold coin donation to buy, with proceeds to The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation. What a nice break from the waves....
