Chennai Puthaga Sangamam
Regular readers of this blog are familiar with my fondness for books and spending lot of money in book fairs. This week in Chennai there is a new book fair titled Chennai Puthaga Sangamam organized by National Book Trust & PSRPI .The venue was YMCA Royapettah (opposite to Royappetah General Hospital) which is different from YMCA Nandanam grounds where annual Chennai Book Fair happens. Today I went to check out this fair which is being held from 18-27 April 2014. The YMCA grounds at Royappetah had sufficient car parking which is rarity now in the city, the hall was less crowded which made it comfortable to check out each stall and the books they carried.
It was pretty much in the same template as Chennai Book Fair with over 200 book stalls, mostly Tamil publishers and local distributors.
I had bought tons of books this January in the Chennai Book Fair 2014, so I tried my best to come out with buying just one book. The book I purchased was Digital Photography by Steve Luck, though its a 2006 edition I got the GBP 14.99 book for a steal at Rs.230 and it was in mint condition.
