Last week , thanks to the Republic holiday (on 29th of October) I found time to visit the "Istanbul Book Fair".One needs courage to go there, since is located in the "far far away "kingdom:)
This fair has been organised in Taksim, but since 2001 because of the lack of place in an all-time growing fair , it was removed to one of the biggest fair centres in Beylikduzu.
The fair is getting bigger and more exciting each passing year.
This year , this 10 days lasting fair , hospited 500 different publishing houses and different civil foundations.Of course not to mention 800 many wellknown national and international writers,scientists,politicians,journalists and literates participation in different workshops , cultural activities .
This years fair was approximately visited by more than 300.000 bookphilos.
The main fair theme was "Mediterranean in Literature and Literature in Mediterranean", consisting of different subjects related to this warm zone of the globe such as : Sea Literature,Mediterranean Kitchen,Mediterranean Women etc etc.
This years fair was also a premiere for Korean literature.
Children were not forgotten as well.They had their special corner of workshops.
I left the fair with 7 books this time..Not that much compared to other times:)
I got Susan Sontag's "Slave of dreams", Hesse's "Knulp" , a short story book from Rilke and some classics .
I noticed that the classic books were really much cheaper from the previous years.I found this very positive.Everybody should read the classics, this is a good start for every book-worm-to-be and still a muse for each of us..
Now , all I wish is to find the time to read all of these books immediately:) Hope I will in all this mess:(
