The Madrid Book Fair

Yesterday King Juan Carlos opened the Madrid Book Fair, an annual event with over 370 individual stands selling all kinds of books. Organizers of the Book Fair want it to have a “European” flavour, as reflected in the title of this year’s edition – “Europe is built with books”. Book-lovers interested in attending this impressive exhibition of literature can visit the fair from now until 13th June. Opening hours are 11 -14.00 and 18.00-21.30 on weekdays, and 11.00 – 15.00 and 17.00 – 22.00 at weekends.

The Madrid Book Fair was first organized in 1933 and since then it has become an annual event. Euroresidentes has this section with book reviews, libros. They are in Spanish, but non-Spanish speakers can get a gist of the meaning with these free online Spanish-English translators.

One of the biggest hits in this year’s editions are expected to be the books released last month by Ana Botella (libro Ana Botella) or Jose Maria Aznar (libro Aznar).
