The Five Mile Press is publishing Rio: My Decade as a Red in August and arranged an exclusive early book-signing, at Kinokuniya, to coincide with Manchester United’s pre-season Sydney tour. It was Rio Ferdinand’s first trip to Australia and TV stations were scrambling to meet with the star, after the first glimpse of this title. The book, with a foreword by Alex Ferguson, is a visual celebration of Rio’s phenomenal football career, presenting his perspective on key moments of his life, both on and off the pitch. It has over 300 images and offers exclusive digital content including video footage of Rio and his team mates.
Alexandra Maramenides, Managing Director of The Five Mile Press said “It was a fantastic opportunity for hundreds of fans to meet Rio Ferdinand for signed copies, before the official release- the response was phenomenal…Rio is a football legend and we’re delighted to be publishing this title ahead of his testimonial match. This represents an exciting chapter for The Five Mile Press and ties in with our publishing ambitions”

Ward Sagar Booksellers, this niche children’s specialist bookstore and Primary school supplier located in Eltham is Up For Sale! In 2012 the inimitable Kay Sagar was closing her beloved bookshop down to retire when local Eltham woman Caitlin Ogdon bought the business from her. After an impressive profitable first year of building the business back up, Ms Ogdon has had to put this bastion of children’s literacy on the market due to ongoing personal, health and family constraints much to her dismay.
“This shop is such a joy to work in, we have wonderful client relationships with our Primary schools and Universities, loyal customers who return with new generations of their families and a great range of books to inspire children of all ages. I’d love to know there was someone else out there wanting to continue the good work this shop does in the Primary Education field. So many schools have rung saddened that there may be a huge hole in the market catering to them if we don’t find a buyer as I will then have to close down. Unfortunately the issues in my personal and family life are taking and will continue to take too much of my time away from being able to build and care for this business the way it deserves. Ward Sagar needs a new custodian.”
If you are interested in acquiring this great and profitable business please contact the shop directly on (03) 9439-9321.
