MobileRead meetup @ Frankfurt Book Fair? Yes!

The Frankfurt Book Fair is about to open its doors once again and what a wonderful opportunity it would be to get together for a quick meetup.

I will be heading to the fair next week Friday, October 12. Maybe also on October 13, although it's going to be tight (I got a train to catch).

Is anyone else joining the party and interested to meet?

Do they have trains from Virginia to Frankfurt? If so, I'm there.

Hmmm. At least Google has its doubts:

Get driving directions from Virginia to Frankfurt, Germany.
On the other hand, walking appears to be an option:

Don't worry, your walking route includes a ferry, so you won't get your feet wet!

I love Google's direction number 774: "Sail across the Pacific Ocean"!

Sorry, can't make it.

"Ich bin verpackt" basically implies that you somehow got yourself in a packet/bundle/parcel... But yeah, I figure you're one of those trying to circumvent airline prices by having yourself shipped via fedex

Hi kevyneva, das klingt doch sehr gut. Ich komme mit dem Zug um ca. 11:00 Uhr in Frankfurt an (wenn alles pünktlich ist). Ich werde mit grosser Wahrscheinlichkeit noch einen MR Forumuser treffen, auch so gegen Mittag. Am Besten schickst Du mir nochmal eine kurze PM, dann können wir uns kurz organisieren.
