Chennai Book Fair is an annual pilgrimage for me. Every year I buy several dozen books, last year (2018) I bought over 35 books, but this year I purchased only four books as in year past (2018) I have been buying books on a regular basis mostly from Amazon India including Tamil books. I liked last year’s venue at St.George School as I was able to travel by metro train, the station was right in front of the venue.

This year (2016) due to Chennai floods in December, the annual book fair got postponed. It’s happening this week – June 1st to 13th 2016. I made my customary visit to the book fair today with my son. This year the book fair is happening in the spacious Island Grounds near Victory War Memorial where the annual trade fair happens in January & February of every year. The organizers have done a good job in terms of parking and stall arrangement this year, kudos to them. My deal to my 12 year old was I will gave him Rs.500 at once, he will buy books…
