Books in Madrid, the city that loves reading
Reading is the more than perfect way to take us to the ever visited or imagined universes, and that is why Madrid gets full of books at this time! The books are a world of dreams that we all love to live while awake. Everything we are, all our teaching we owe to books; either through educational books we studied in school, books that make us live and feel adventures, romances, fears and all kind of feelings.
We all believed that books would become obsolete and that we would see its consequent disappearance after the growth of modern in advanced technologies of information that stalk us everywhere. A lot of us thought that the fact of having so much information available at our fingertips would make the old paper books disappear from our homes … but nothing is further from reality. The population continues to love books, and by having them in our hands makes us feel the magic of translating the words into images.
Madrid is a city that is always searching a way to bring closer the book to the reader, either by events like the Night of the books, investing in public libraries by offering current releases or with its annual Book Fair.
The «Parque del Retiro» receive the books
