IF YOU like books and bargains, then you're in for a treat this weekend.

CQUniversity's Bundaberg campus will clear out some of its old stock and hold a big book sale on Saturday, with the aim to raise as much money as possible for cancer research.

CQU librarian and sale organiser Dave Draney said there was a wide range of items for people to choose from - and best of all, they're dirt cheap.

Items on sale include novels, course textbooks, videotapes and computer leads and mice, all priced at the bargain rate of 50c an item.

Mr Draney said one of the highlights of what was on offer was a 20-volume Reader's Digest collection to celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Dickens's birth.

But be warned: you'd better be quick.

"At midday the Lifeline truck arrives to take away what's left," Mr Draney said.

The book sale will be held at CQUniversity's Bundaberg campus from 9am-noon, in the outdoor area between buildings 1 and 3.
