My visit to 34th Chennai Book Fair - 2011



Book Fair has become almost a carnival for Chennaities. People from all walks visit
the book fair and buy all sorts of books.

The book fair was started to encourage the reading habit of Chennaities who are notorious for not reading enough. The book fair aims to elevate the taste of Chennaities from popular cinema which is their major cultural activity.

There are 463 stalls with 3 entrances. In addition there were several functions like meeting the authors and debates.

In addition there were several second hand book shops arranged on the pavements (footbaths) just opposite to the Book fair venue. These shops were giving good competition to the book fair guys..
