Quotes from a day at the London Book Fair

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

So yesterday was my day at the London Book Fair – a slightly more subdued experience than usual given it was the first time I had attended on the last day of the fair.

The fair kicks off with a buzz of adrenalin (something akin to going into battle) but by the end, the long hours of back-to-back meetings starts to show (no actual wounds but no doubt a few might feel they could use a stretcher). As a publicist, I have a far easier ride than those who work in a Rights deparment and usually have the time between meetings to flit about the stands (which usually involves me salivating over cookbooks) and to attend seminars.

And here are some quotes that marked my day:
