Chennai Book Fair 2018

A visit and shopping spree to Chennai Book Fair is an annual event for me that I look forward to. And in last few years, it’s become a pilgrimage that I & my son undertake together. This year the travel to the venue became super convenient with the metro train line reaching there, the Pachayappa’s College station is right in front of the St.George School – the venue.

Out of the total 35 books that we bought, most of it was selected by my son for his reading.

Due to the ongoing Bus Strike, there was quite a crowd onboard Metro Train
