I’ve never attended a book festival/expo of any kind. But not every one is made equally. I’m not sure how much I’d enjoy a local festival that only lasts a day or two. But I can’t definitely say I wouldn’t enjoy it, right?
I think it would be a pleasant experience to be surrounded by people who love books. Wouldn’t really matter what they love reading or who, just that they do. The simple fact is that books give so many people something in common. Literature may seem small in the eyes of some, but common ground is common ground. There’s not much of that going around today.
Have you attended any book festival/expo? How was it?
