EdBookFest in pictures

Edinburgh International Book Festival is held every year in the city's Charlotte Square. At any other time of the year it is one of the many green areas around the city where tourists, residents and local workers on a lunch break can be seen sitting, chatting, eating, exercising dogs or anything else that we all use such areas for. But for two weeks a year it becomes home to the festival.

Entry to the festival is free and so anyone can still wander in and take in some of the sights and sounds. Perhaps you may want to fill your water bottle, jump onto the free wifi, get a book signed in one of the free book signings or simply relax in one of their fabulous deck chairs.

Chances are though that for a reasonable charge you may be tempted into one of many many events that run throughout the day and the evening (or even one of the free events!). There are events for adults, teens and even small children - something for EVERYONE.

But be warned - it's addictive! But it's one of those rare addictions that is actually good for you as it broadens your horizons. If in the area give it a go - you won't regret it!
