I went to BogForum 2011 in Copenhagen this weekend -- basically the largest book expo in Denmark.
And it was awesome. God, I can't even begin to describe it! There was so much to see and buy and so many people and authors to meet, and I was only there Saturday and Sunday! So I'm thinking I'll just show the books I got later on this month, but have some other pictures me and my mum took:
A) I got a new hat. Copenhagen equals shopping. There's not even a single alternative shop in my town, which is the second largest in the country, just saying. B) WE FOUND THE ENGLISH BOOKS. And so, I had to take them all down from the shelves and just drool. C) Purplezz.
Not the best photos, excuse us, but this is the Finnish author Sofi Oksanen (I have never read anything by her, but now I have my hands on a signed copy of Stalin's Cows) at the signing session. Asdfjhfgdkjh gorgeous woman.
Sorry, I just....
How is she so beautiful?
Ah well. We didn't really take the many pics, but here are some from the Dennis Jürgensen (Danish horror writer. Mostly children's/YA horror) signing:
Please excuse my face. But, yay!, he signed one of my all-time favourite short story horror collections. I don't think it's translated into English, though. :/
Great time. I had a lot of fun. Of course I went and saw some interviews as well (Morten Brask, Ib Johansen, ...) but they're all Danish writers and Danish translators so yeah... :)
