What do book lovers enjoy doing almost as much as reading their favorite stories? Finding other people who love them just as much and talking about them. Dissecting our favorite stories, figuring out our favorite characters, untangling plot threads, and more are all part and parcel of being fans of the written word. One of the places that we can congregate with each other is at a book conventions/fairs.
The Kotobee Blog reached out to me recently about a post that they’d put together featuring book fairs from around the world. Six out of seven continents (there’s hope for Antarctica, but none so far!) feature at least a few books fairs throughout the year. By checking out this post, searchable worldwide chronologically or by clicking on the continent icon you’d like, you can see which are yet to come in the rest of 2019.
Thank you once more to the staff at Kotobee for reaching out regarding this blog’s summary of International Book Fairs. It was a pleasure to peruse the post and see not only celebrations of books that took place and will take place near(ish) to me, but to book lovers around the world.
Have you attended any of the fairs on the Kotobee Blog’s list? The closest I’ve come personally is Book Expo America (BEA) in New York, when I went to Book Con (the day after). One day, though, I hope to go to BEA itself. 😀 Please share your personal experience with book fairs, wherever in the world the experience took place, in the comment section down below.
Once again thank you to Reem and the people behind Kotobee for curating the International Book Fair post, as well as the graphic shared here today, so that you all can search for a possible new to you event to attend in the future. 🙂 Hopefully there will be many exciting reads making their ways into your bags at these fairs!
