Booktown, here we come

Luke and I are getting out of town again tomorrow. We're off to the rustic little town of Clunes which hosts the annual Booktown Festival. A festival! Of books! It's "the biggest collection of rare, out-of-print, new, small-press publications, second hand and collectable books in Australia". This is our first visit and I'm a little bit excited. Not just about the books, but about the country drive, visiting the rustic goldmining town for the first time and taking lots of photos. I'm hoping there will be some old signs too. 

I saw stormtroopers in Fed Square on my way to work today. Then I realised that it was May the 4th - Star Wars Day. I would have been more impressed if there were Wookies in Fed Square. Or if R2D2 and C3PO were there. 

This is my 600th post on Gleeful. Wooh!
