It's back, Brisbane! Lifeline is here again selling a million books over 10 massive days to raise funds for Lifeline. And the upshot for us is that us book lovers can browse the 4.5 kilometres of tables holding up 22 semi-trailer-loads of books!

It's not just books though - there are also DVDs, games, magazines, records, stationery, puzzles, CDs, sheet music and more.

Go as early as you can as the good stuff always sells first. 

ellaslist opinion: Take your own bags, or buy some there for $1 a piece, but if you plan on finding a decent haul, take a shopping trolley or pram to store your stash. Books can get really heavy!

Where: Brisbane Convention Centre, South Brisbane
When: 19-28 January 2019 (hours vary so check the website)
Cost: Free to enter; prices of books as marked
More info: UnitingCare website
