This is a Friday meme now hosted by Patricia of FiktiveWelten. Every week she asks a question that you can answer. Everyone who would like to participate, just answer her question, link to her blog and write a comment under her post to let the others know that you are participating. The entire rules you can find here.
This week Patricia is asking if I ever was a guest at a book fair or if I would like to be one.
Well, to be short: I haven´t been yet on a book fair.
Not on those two we have every year here in Germany nor on one abroad. Currently, the world is to guest at the world’s biggest book fair in Frankfurt, which is about a two hours drive away from where I live. The other we have is a bit smaller and takes place in Leipzig usually around spring.
And yes, who wouldn´t love to go to such an event, see authors you like or love live and maybe have a chat with one or the other? Get your books signed, buy new ones and just feel the atmosphere?
One day I will take the time and see all that with my own eyes, but for now, I will have to turn on the TV (late at night, of course!) and see what they report from this event.
How is it about you?
I am Vi, forty-something, avid reader, blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works.
