Chennai’s book lovers 28/1/2016

It was heartening to learn the just concluded book exhibition in Chennai was a thundering success, infact the organizers had to extend it by a day   probably due to public demand.  We book lovers have  no doubt missed  the annual book fair  (due to the deluge in Chennai ) that takes place  every  January where a large number of publishers, big and small take part and  I for one   missed  the opportunity  to  pick up atleast a couple of books as a force of habit.  Readers of Tamil books have had a wide choice, so  I gathered  from some visitors to the fair. Children’s books in English too were available in plenty and they appeared to have had a good sale. I am happy  that  physical books  continue to be in demand and there are people who prefer  to own them   and   read  enjoying turning page after page rather than  reading on  the latest  devices.

    I visited this book exhibition and picked up a couple of Tamil classics. Large publishers and distributors of technical books did not participate.
