When it comes to books, not everyone can completely embrace the digital age. The texture and smell of a book is something that no iPad or Kindle can copy. To help you embrace your love of books without breaking the bank this festive season, the Abbotsford Convent is hosting a huge book market.

If you ever visited Fed Square's packed book market, you'll know what to expect: this one's run by the same people. More than 5000 pre-loved and new books on every topic under the sun — from history to gardening, travel to art and literature — and a heap of second-hand vinyls will fill the Convent. This should make for some very happy browsing and even happier reading later on.

The Melbourne Book Market has relocated to the Convent permanently and will be holding monthly fairs for bibliophiles. And it's in good company, with the Convent already being home to Lentil As Anything, a pay-as-you-feel vegetarian that's open all day on Saturdays.

We'll update you as soon as more MBM dates are announced.

The Melbourne Book Market will run from 10am–5pm.
