Book fair in Chennai


The 29th Chennai Book fair held in Chennai Quaid-e-Millat College. For the last 3 years i was buying book in this fair. The Book fairs like this will encourage the reading knowledge of people. In the 2004 book fair i bought a Encyclopedia CD, last year i bought a General Knowledge book and a Quize book. This time i have bought Da Vince Code Book, for a long time i was thinking to buy a novel, so this time i have bought. Ever year i send my dad to buy books, he told compare to last year, this year he saw many people buying books. The Chennai Book fair starts on January 6th and ends on 16th. In this fair there are 300 shops. In 3 lakh titled there are 60 lakh books are placed here. there are books from Rs.5 to Rs.15,000. This year 40 lakh books have saled and earned Rs.4 crore. 4 lakh visitors have visited the fair.

When i was in school, every year the school will conduct book faire, they will sale old and new books from the school liberary, every time i used to buy Drawing books and story books. We will take the book and they will write our names and we should give money on the next day. some time some students used to stolen books from there, and sale it to some students. We have a big Liberary room, every week we have a Liberary class, and used to go there and read some story books, but really we will not read, just sit and taking with friend and playing. But the liberary miss will have a big scale and used to beat students, who are not reading books, some times, i also get beat from here.
