One thing you should know about me is that I’m an English major. This naturally means I have to read a lot of books. I love them too! Bookstores are my bff! Because of all of these factors, you could say I’m a bit more than hype for this upcoming event.

On Sunday, Detroit will be hosting its 2nd annual Bookfest in Eastern Market's Shed 5 and 6. This book fair, similar to yet SO much bigger than the ones you remember from elementary school, will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.! The best part? Attendance is free.

Along with a plethora of books, there will be a selection of vinyl records, comic books, vintage board games and other unconventional items.

Food will be provided by The Nosh Pit, Nu Deli, Big Dog’s Hot Dogs, Detroit Gourmet Nut Company, Cosmic Burrito and Cherry Pit BBQ. Hey, reading can make you hungry! I know this as a fact.
