World’s Longest Bookcase

2 Mar

I’m a little late on this but someone just sent it to me and it was too good to not post. Ikea celebrated the 30th anniversary of their Billy bookcases by lining up 30 of them (red ones!) on Syndey’s Bondi Beach to create the world’s longest bookcase. Check it out:

A beach goer selects books from 30 red Ikea Billy bookcases lined up to form the world's longest outdoor bookcase to celebrate the 30th birthday of the brand's signature furniture piece, at Bondi Beach on January 31, 2010 in Sydney, Australia. The bookcases were filled with thousands of books which beachgoers can swap for one of their own or make a gold coin donation to buy, with proceeds to The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation.

    Where are the books from? Are they free from Ikea? 🙂
