There are just too many people, making it difficult to get around and to see things at my leisure. But that is being selfish - other people have as much right to go there as I do - so I should not complain too much. There are also many books that I am not interested in, and many that are not even books. But then other people have their own interests. So there it goes again.
The Book Fair does give me an opportunity to browse the scholarly publications of the university presses in one place.
I ended up buying one from CityU Press and another from ChineseU Press.
There are opportunities to see publications related to the current political scene. One does not have to agree with anyone of them. But it is still interesting and educational to see who is saying what, and how quickly.
There is also, of course, opportunities to buy some good books, at a discount. I found 3 books that I like. So I did benefit from it.
And even some things that I wasn’t expecting. Such as calligraphy.
I say the Book Fair still gives everyone an opportunity to get a little bit what they want. I only wished that I had more time to spent there. So it should continue. I hope it gives me more of what I want, but it may be asking too much.
