Postcard from Madrid: Feria de Libros

Posted by Slavito in Madrid on 24/Aug/2006
Walking along the Paseo del Prado yesterday, I couldn't help but notice all those kiosks and stands filled with books. Bookish types were swarming around them like insects.

So, I browsed a little bit and even though most of the material on display was clearly junk, I had to remind myself more than once about airline weight restrictions: otherwise, I would have now had in my possession more than a few 2€ encyclopedias and a handful sub-10€ hard-cover editions of literary classics published in the 70's.

I couldn't figure out the exact dates for this event, but it looks like the stalls will be there for at least a few more weeks.
