World Book Market success?

By

Amsterdam tried to hold the largest book market in the world yesterday with 1,000 stalls covering an area between the Nieuwmarket and the Stopera (city hall / opera). When I arrived there around 11 am, a number of stalls looked like this: empty, except for the occasional bit of advertising. The area around the windy yet sunny Nieuwmarkt, where I met a number of fellow Project Gutenberg volunteers I hadn’t met before, was nicely populated though.

Heske Kannegieter, the organiser, told me on the phone she thought the market had been a success. According to her, 900 stalls had been rented out for the day.
