People thought it was good to have event about reading/book. It was reason of the National Reading Day, but there were a lot of complaint from book sellers.
Most of book sellers said they paid for booth, 50$ (for one day). It was not expensive but they were unhappy because there were few visitors. They brought a log of books and sold less than 3 percents of the whole numbers. So, 50$ became big amount for them.
Moreover, the booth was bad. It was used by dirty cloth and not comfortable. It was careless.
It was hot season. The organizer should know so they should prepare fans for the sellers but they did not. The sellers had to stay under the heat.
In conclusion, they did not care about the sellers. They just collected money and left the sellers alone. Even thought, they were afraid to hear true comment; who said good about them, they would note down.
The sellers were so disappointed and angry. They said that the organizer should promote the event to attract the visitors and also they should take care of the sellers because they gave money to them not got the booth for free.
The sellers said they wasted much but they got nothing.
I also visited the event and I thought what the book sellers complain was right. The sellers told me that they felt that the event was made to get money and fame but not to encourage, promote and help reading and book publisher like they spoke.
The sellers expressed last words that if the organizer did not show care to sellers, they would not join in event next year.
