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.
