Bangkok World Book Capital 2013 kicked off
April 23, 2013, at 7 a.m., Bangkok city governor and people donated books as symbolic morning alms for 400 Buddhist Theravada monks to commemorate Bangkok World Book Capital 2013. At 8:30 a.m. the governor, with representatives from UNESCO, IPA, IFLA, IBF revealed a commemorative postage, with the first-day cover on sale until May 15.
I think a more interesting story which was not mentioned in the news event today but I want to add is that, the Bangkok Metropolitant Administration (BMA) would build its new main office building and the original city hall would be turned into Bangkok city library. That 's a better news.
