In Deventer the largest bookmarket in Europe took place yesterday. Around 125.000 people browsed the books offered by some 900 booksellers displayed on stalls totalling more than 6 kilometres in length.

Strange was that even with this number of people the city was free of noise. Book readers are quiet people.
