On the hunt for some fresh reading material? Or maybe you're keen to get a jump-start on that Christmas present shopping? Either way, you're sure to find a few winners at the Penguin Random House annual charity book sale. The event's 2019 edition descends on Collins Square's Walker Lane on Thursday, October 24, offering a smorgasbord of literary delights and all for an excellent cause.

Entry to the mammoth sale is by gold coin donation, which, along with proceeds from the day's book sales, will go straight to supporting charity partner the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. It'll help the non-profit continue to spread the love of reading to children in remote Indigenous Australian communities — and help the communities to tell and publish their own stories. Last year's event saw book-lovers raising more than $17,000 for the cause.

The sale is set to be stocked with an enormous range of bargain titles, covering a hefty spread of genres and with prices starting from as low as $5. Bring a bag and stock up.
