Today we went to a book signing at Filigranes Library. We didn't plan on going there but we were doing a favor to my girlfriend's dad who wanted his book signed.
As much as i didn't want to go at first i am so happy we did. Karma can be quite good to us sometimes.
This library is a place i would recommend to anyone who loves books. First of all this place is huge!
Every corner is crammed with books and the best thing is that you can even grab a drink in there cosy bar while checking out the books you plan on buying.
Besides the bar there are coaches strategically placed all over the shop. They have an enormous art section and a basement filled with English books as well.
They host book signings and readings more than once a week. These are completely free so you can just walk in and enjoy the author's take on his book.
I had to hold back from snatching as much books as i could carry. It's frustrating to go there with empty pockets because i could ruin myself there.
The people working there are actually happy to be working there and can advise you on anything you would want to know. Give them some references and they will happily advise you on great stuff to read.
We're going back tomorrow just to be able to get a better look at the English section.
