Beach bums

A book is an oft-spotted companion to those who worship the sun on Australia's most famous beach but usually it hasn't been plucked from an iconic giant red bookshelf just metres away whilst wearing little more than a pair of pants.

As part of the 30th-birthday celebrations of one of IKEA's most popular bookshelves, the BILLY, the Scandinavian furniture giant placed 30 of bookcases on the sands of Bondi beach in Sydney.

The shelves, which were in place for just one day, offered bookworms thousands of books to choose from and beachgoers were invited to swap one of their own books or make a gold coin donation, with money raised going to The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.
