Bulgaria's PM opens largest book fair with a smart purchase

Date: 31.05.2007

Known to be an avid reader, Bulgaria's Prime Minister Sergey Stanishev appeared more than pleased to inaugurate on Wednesday the traditional spring book fair, the largest in the country.

Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco and a collection of Macedonian folklore songs were among the books that the prime minister purchased as he toured the exhibition displayed at the National Palace of Culture.

Stanishev expressed the hope that the fair, coupled with the efforts of Bulgarian writers, will keep alive the tradition of reading books, not allowing the Internet to take the upper hand.

A total of 120 publishing houses from all over the country are displaying under one roof their latest titles and hope to attract more readers by offering an up to 50% discount.

A giant ABC book, measuring 63-48 centimetres, drew the attention of visitors and journalists on the first day of the fair.

The Bulgarian Book Association will award the Bronze Lion statuette to the publisher whose book proved to be the biggest success on the market in the period from June 2006 to May 2007.
