Madrid’s Night of Books – a chance to celebrate books set in Spain

Spain's National Library - Madrid. CC image courtesy of garromeister on Flickr For booklovers who love to travel to foreign cities – the idea of Madrid’s ‘Night of the Books’ is a hard one to pass up.

Celebrating all things literary, around 200 bookshops stay open until midnight and there are workshops and performances by artists, writers and musicians.

And not only do you have all the fun of the nocturnal delights on offer, there is also a ten percent discount off any books you buy.

In a time when we are constantly hearing the cry that books and bookshops have a limited lifespan, it is a joy to see just how lively the literary scene is around the world – and that cities everywhere are coming up with initiatives to engage their citizens with reading.

So while you and I may be struggling to make it to Madrid in time for the Night of the Books on the 23rd of April – that doesn’t mean we can’t use this fine event as an excuse to pick up a book or two set in Spain, and settle down with our novels –  and a glass of Sangria –  to mark the occasion!

Head over to our main site to check out the great books we have selected for you that are set in Spain and immerse yourself in a little bit of Spanish life…

Salud!

    Great initiative I would like to participate but sadly enough I can’t. This would be a marvelous event just like the Museum Night here in Amsterdam.
