Yes, I am usually nicer to my faithful public!
I have “guesstimated” the average number of kilometers the public walk in an average book fair like the Salon du livre de Montréal: quite a lot! Around 6 kilometers (excluding the walk inside the Congress Center to get there! )
So, yes, reading is good for your health!
