Book Day (Sant Jordi in Catalunya) is here. There are only a few days left until we celebrate this precious day, which commemorates the death of two key writers of literature. On the one hand, our Miguel de Cervantes; on the other, the magnificent William Shakespeare.
This April 23 we will buy many books . This is a good time to enjoy literature and make others enjoy it too. If you also go out for a walk in Barcelona, you will have the opportunity to meet the best of media literature. And maybe, if you are patient and willing to queue, you can take home a dedicated book.
Meanwhile, you can take a look at the online stores. And buy your books in advance. In this way, you will save queues and you can start reading the books you want as soon as possible. Keep in mind, on the other hand, that during these days they offer between a 5 and 10% discount in most bookstores . It is a good opportunity to get them at a better price.
