Summer is the time of the book fair. Well, there are book fairs all year round, but in The Netherlands most of them are during the summer. We visited two of them recently and I thought it would be nice to give you a small photo impression. I wonder if book fairs look different in other countries…
The first fair was on June 29. it was in the city of Haarlem. There were about 170 stands in the city center. The atmosphere was very cozy. We overspend. Big time. The second one was in Dordrecht, on July 5. This is the second largest book fair of The Netherlands. There were about 450 stands. It was very busy, but we managed to find some new treasures for our library.
