Basking bookworms

IKEA Create Worlds Longest Outdoor Bookcase On Bondi Beach
Yesterday, Australia's famous Bondi Beach hosted an outdoor library containing 6000 books and 30 shelves. The event marked the 30th anniversary of the Ikea Billy bookcase. Interestingly, a survey by Ikea found 25% or Australian have greater than 20 unread books in their home. I have many more, both that I plan to read and that I don't (although I am progressively boxing these up for sale and donation).

Publishers donated the books for the public to swap or buy with a donation to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.
