I already wrote a few details in a previous article !
When I went to the book fair with a friend last night, it was still relatively empty. We were there early and this was our luck: We were the first ones purchasing a couple of books and one of those books was sold out a few minutes later.
As I said before, this year’s book fair is rather small and not too international. 🙂 Here are a few pictures:
Books in Arabic
One of the biggest exhibition stands: Germany
This was basically it. 🙂 The four books I bought were enough and I don’t need to go again tonight. I have to say that I much more enjoy the annual Hebrew Book Week but the present book fair has become far too small and you won’t find anything new. Almost the entire self – publishing and ebook market is left out but I read somewhere that Amazon is planning to set up something in Israel.
In previous years, the haredi population came because there were a lot of frum book stands. This time, however, there is hardly anything. The book fair is okay and you a walk through doesn’t take too long. You can make a few bargains but it depends what you are looking for.
