- Dave Eggers - What Is The What. I've been wanting to read this for a while, and scored a well-thumbed copy in the priced section. This alone made bookfest worth it for me.
- Solzhenitsyn - Lenin In Zurich. I saw a few Solzhenitsyn's, but this was the only one I didn't have... seriously, if you spot a Solzhenitsyn, I thoroughly reccommend picking it up, esp. The First Circle and One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich.
- Harold Pinter - The Caretaker.
- Doctor Who - Travel Without The TARDIS. Yes, nerdy. It's a fan's guide to England, Scotland & Wales... will be using!

Picking Up at Lifeline Bookfest.
When I say 'picking up', I'm referring to books. I've had a few conversations this week about the possibilities of picking up (yes, trad usage now) at Bookfest... I just don't see it being possible. I'm waaaaay too picky when it come to books to actively seek out babes... and in my experience, the few attractive people who attend Bookfest (that I don't already know) tend to relieve the tables of pulp crap. Good for my bookshelf! Anyway, I went this morning & managed to pick up a couple...
