Lots of exciting things have been happening. So sit down, hold onto your pheasants, and prepare for a plethora of page turning book love.
To start, Logical Unsanity was again an absolute hit at the Woodford Folk Festival.
People browsed, read, played backgammon, and escaped from the incredible heat, nearly non-stop, 17 hours a day, all week long.

New Location in Fortitude Valley
Logical Unsanity is moving to a new warehouse space. From mid-February, you will be able to find us on School St, Fortitude Valley. The new location is right on the cusp of the City, the Valley, and Spring Hill, next door to the Barry Parade Shell Service Station.
Look out for the next update in early February which will let you know more about the space and what we will be doing there.
Bardon High-Quality Section Closing
In two weeks time, we close the gate of the Bardon high-quality section to the public for the last time as we prepare to move it over to the Valley. The final day is Saturday, 4th of February. So come in, grab a pile of books and make an offer on a piece of art.
The 24 Hour Book Shed
While the high-quality section is moving, we are very happy to announce that the book shed will remain in Bardon. The future of the shed was looking non-existant until only a few days ago, but we have secured a new lease for the space and are very pleased that it will be remaining in its present location for at least the next few years.
Now that we have secured the shed’s future, we are planning some renovations to increase its book capacity, as well as add better reading chairs and tables. More announcements on that soon too.
That’s everything for Occasional Update #11. OU#12 will be with you sooner than usual as an update on the new space and renovation plans for the book shed are imminent.
We will leave you with Yarran’s special New Years Day present, a visit from Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, and their son Anthony.
Despite recovering from a bout of bronchitis, Neil was in good spirits, and happily signed a small collection of his books. Amanda, who visited the bookshop on the first day of the festival, recounted that upon telling a very sick Neil, “There’s a bookshop in there.” a smile forced its way through his delirium.
