Such an orderly line. The quiet before the storm of visitors, eh? 237 booths?! Wow, book heaven.
Have fun!

That is a big book fair! My grandson has been so excited this week because they are having a book fair at his school.

Oh what fun. I want to be there. I love books and probably would linger almost forever.
That's a lot of booths. MB

Now you gotta take a pic of this walkway fully packed w/ people hunting books!

Sorry I haven't been visiting (or posting) lately... I've been engrossed in a series of books! LoL!

Wish I was there!:-)
It looks nice and has style. I like the colors too.

Jarart said...

I would be there the minute it opened and bring a hand cart to carry all the books home.
The pavement is another work of art.

Of course, you'll go back and show us when the fair is in full swing . . . .

Fun fish on your posting yesterday!

From the thumbnail I was thinking, hey where are the people! Excellent shot without the masses!

Book fairs are wonderful and I like the sunny colour of the booths. I'm sure you'll enjoy this event!

A beautiful attention to details and esthetic.
Not to mention a great place to be, when you love books and I do!

Do you think it could be possible that this fair was already there in 1994? I bought my copy of Os Lusíadas and few other books at some stalls in that park, but it was June, I think.

I love these kinds of events. They're quite common in Greece, but I've never seen one in London :-(

It'd be great to see a photo once the booths are open and trading.

I love the tile walkway between the booths. It adds a permanence and class to a temporary event. Hope the book fair was a great success!

237 book booths ... what bliss!

Love all the shapes (and green). Before I read your caption I was wondering how you got that shot without any people!

Eu adoro "Feira do Livro", uma ótima dica para o final de semana e com feriado e tudo! Boa leitura!

If I read this correctly, the book fair is closed for the day. Or, it hasn't opened yet. But you, fortunately, were wide awake and got this impressive photograph! A novel approach and please excuse the poor excuses for puns.

Colorful and well organized!

Is it really, an outdoor book fair? What a great idea, to get a good book and immediately find a nice shady spot to enjoy...
