Second Life of the Book gains in popularity

On Sunday, as the spring sun brightened the Krakow sky, numerous book lovers who wanted to give their books a second life and to explore book collections of others drew to the Tourist Service Centre. Around 200 people swapped their books on that occasion!
At 3.00 pm sharp, book enthusiasts, loaded down with book packages, entered the Tourist Service Centre. Thanks to them such treasures as Patrick Süskind’s Pachnidło (Perfume), Balzac’s Ojciec Goriot (Father Goriot), Wojciech Mann’s Kroniki wariata z kraju i ze świata (Chronicles of a Madman, the Country and around the World), Jerzy Kosiński’s Malowany ptak (Painted Bird), Zośka Papużanka’s Szopka (Puppet Show), William Styron’s The Suicide Run or Kazimierz Wyka’s Życie na niby (A Make-Belief Life) gained a new life.
Thank you very much for your participation in the campaign. We hope that every next such event will gather more participants. Don’t miss out the meeting at the French Institute (15 Stolarska Street) on 16 March, under the Francophonie Month. NOTE: During that event we will only swap books of French-speaking countries in Polish and French!
