The Big Read TV format that is supposed to define Bulgarians' favourite books has officially been given a green light on Bulgarian National Television on October 5 2008. For more than an hour politicians, athletes, journalists and other public figures talked about their favourite book and the state of Bulgarian prose and readers. Most of them pointed The Master and Margarita by Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov as their favourite novel.
EACH country has its national poets. They are people who were not only good at writing but also at exposing the depths of their fellow countrymen's souls. When celebrating their greatest moments, such as Liberation Day on March 3, Bulgarians remember the one and only person that used poetry and prose to tell the world of the Bulgarian soul, and the Bulgarian struggle to become a nation - Ivan Vazov.
