Gaudeamus book fair ends

Entry was free of charge for book lovers yesterday, while organizers of the biggest national book fair Gaudeamus have extended the event one more day. According to organizers Radio Romania, in spite of recession, this year’s fair was attended by an increasing number of visitors. Only on Sunday, 32,000 visitors went to Romexpo to buy books and to participate in various cultural events. Besides presenting the latest volumes and multimedia issues, new technological applications were on display for culture lovers. One of the most successful was Lectomaton- a product introduced to Romania by this year’s special guest – the Walonie Brussels region. This original project consists of a camcorder that will allow anyone to read fragments from their favourite books. In only one day since its launch in Romania the Lectomaton has successfully recorded 30 texts which will be posted on Dailymotion and shared with the world. Also yesterday, through vote of the public, fair organizers handed the Gaudeamus Trophy for best publishing company to Humanitas. The company was closely followed by Nemira and Rao, while the best learning book publishing house was declared All. Also, the best book at the fair was “Crimes of the Revolution” by historian Grigore Cartianu.
