The Book and the Rose

Gotas de lluvia caen sobre miFernando Jiménez Ocaña

Today is the International Day of the Book and here we also celebrate the day of San Jorge, who is the patron saint of Aragón, my community .

If it doesn’t rain (well and if it rains I’ll take an umbrella), in a little while I’ll go celebrate the book party in the streets of my city.

Booksellers and publishers take out their stalls along one of the main avenues of the city.

The tradition is that booksellers give away a rose with the purchase of a book.

I’m afraid I’m coming home today loaded with books and flowers… and an empty wallet 😉
