Book exchange event receives unexpected popularity

March 21, 2010

By Kārlis Kocers

International exhibition organizer “BT 1” recently hosted a Latvian book exhibition where over 8,000 books were exchanged.

In Last year’s exhibition 3,000 books found new owners, but this year surpassed even the most optimistic expectations of organizers of the Latvian Book Exhibition. The 2010 Project Manager Valts Jirgensons said there were more than 15,000 visitors from Feb. 25-28, when exhibition took place in Riga.

Ints Dālderis, the Latvian Minister of Culture, was happy that so many people could exchange with books, because he said “Considering current economical situation, a lot of book readers can’t afford to buy new books.”

The book exchange wasn’t the only thing that attracted people. This year “Latvijas Grāmatnieku ģildes” versatile cultural program provided several book-related events. Children had their chance to participate in many competitions. French writer Frederic Beigbeders also visited the exhibition.

These kinds of events are welcome in harsh times when people search for cheaper alternatives to having fun and enjoying cultural experiences like reading books.
