Getting down with the locals

Today (Sat) we visited the Big Bad Wolf book fair in the equivalent of the Bangkok NEC. It was huge and very impressive. English language and Thai titles for sale as massively discounted prices.

It was about an hour away and we had to take a sky train (& change lines) then a taxi. We felt quite adventurous. The event was free and crowded with locals who clearly loved reading and knew a bargain when they saw one.

Although not organised to librarian standards I still managed to locate several titles which I want to add to the school library. I started modestly and only bought £97 worth of titles but paid only £38. V pleased with myself.
