Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Oh how I wish I could just see all the books and travel the whole world! So, this is going to be a fun theme for the day!
- Wigtown Book Festival. Ever since I read The Diary of a Bookseller, I have wanted to go to Wigtown, Scotland to see the Wigtown Book Festival. I wanted to see a place I had only read about, but knew existed, and knew that it would be one of my favourite places to visit.
- Jaipur Literary Festival. I loved India the few months that I lived there, and I would love to go back and visit some day. This would be an excellent reason to go and see more of India and to see what books would be there. I only visited a few bookstores while there, but I would love to go back and see more.
- Kanda Used Book Festival. I want to visit Japan so badly and to see that wonderful country and the Kanda Used Book Festival would be an excellent reason to go.
The Kanda Used Book Festival is one of the largest annual events in the Jimbocho district of Kanda—renowned as a town of used and antique books. The organizers go further to claim it’s the largest event of its kind in the world.
- Hay Festival. This takes place in, and around, Hay-on-Wye, a small town that borders England and Wales. As you can probably clearly see, I just want to travel and read books and these festivals would be a good way to do that.
- Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Okay, and now I just want to visit the West Coast and see what it has to offer in the way of books. I just want to read all of the books and see what there is out in the world.
