: For those of you who have never been there, it's quite an experience. Everybody who is anybody in the world of books is there. Lots of publishers. Lots of famous authors. Lots of stages for readings also. I'll be there. Will you?
It was great. A bit overwheming, miles and miles of walking, too much to see in one day. Huge crowds. Some interesting panels, all sold out. Don't miss it next year.
