[Top Ten Tuesday] Top Ten Books Event I'd Love to Go to Someday

Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

To be honest, I got a difficulty to make this TTT. Since I am in Indonesia, I would like to list some of Indonesian book event here. I'll try my best to make it into 10.

In order to make it easier, I will list any book-related event. So, it's not only a book fair, tho. Hope you enjoy my choice.

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is an annual project of non-profit foundation, the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati. Apparently, this festival become one of the biggest festival in Southeast Asia. It become the melting pot of artists, authors, thinkers, and performers.

Within five days, there will be a lot of program, start from talk show, live performance, until workshop.

Since it held in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, I always hope can go to this festival someday.

One of the biggest book fair in the world. I always heard about this book fair. I want to know how this book fair going.

Just like London Book Fair, Frankfurt Book Fair is one of book event that I usually heard. As the largest book fair in the word, I would like to know more the ambiance there.

As the big fan of Agatha Christie's work, it seems so right to visit this festival, right? It should be so much fun can dress up and getting to know more about Christie.

To be honest, I choose this book fair because I want to visit Sweden. As the second largest book fair in Europe, I think it will be fun to be surrounded but a lot of Scandinavian books.

I think this is the first time I heard about Jakarta International Literary Festival. JILF is an annual international literary festival by the Literary Committee of Jakarta Arts Council (JAC).

Usually, I always attend the Cultural Speech that held by JAC every year. To be honest, most of the performer from JAC is incredible. So, I wonder how this literary festival will be like.

Well, this book event is not a grand event. As far as I know, this weekly book discussion held at POST Bookshop, Jakarta, Indonesia. I always want to attend this book discussion, but I don't have any chance back then because my working hour is clashing.

Then, since COVID-19, this book shop is temporary closed. So, I have to wait until the situation got better to attend this discussion.

Actually, this event is held annually by Goodreads Indonesia Community. But, as there is some internal crisis, the continuation of this event is a little bit confusing.

To be honest, I want to feel the euphoria of this festival. I want to meet a lot of people from book community. Sadly, I didn't have a chance to do it.

9. Book Fair at Appleton Elementary School (Don't Check Out This Book)

One thing that I want to know, what is exactly the green dot book collection all about? Even though it's not really a book fair, it's about an event when the children can find a comfort from book.

10. A Night at the Mr. Lemoncello's Library (Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library)

Since I read this book, I wonder how it feel to spent a whole night at such an amazing library. Solving every clue and puzzle must be really fun. Moreover, it will include a lot of books. 

Finally I can finish this list. So, what book event that you want to visit someday? Let's share our wishes and hoping we could visit all of those events some day.
