The Tenth National Book Fair is being organised in Jaipur from September 7 to 15. The book fair is being visited by thousands of book lovers and students every day.
The book fair has a display of some of the best books, journals, CDs, video games, stationery and other reading material. Besides books, everyday events like book releases and interaction between authors, students, publishers, book-sellers, distributors, librarians and readers are being organized.
Over the years, by including various informative, engaging and entertaining activities, the Jaipur
book fair has become an exciting place to visit. This year more than 300 book stalls have been put up and the books of 2L authors are on the display, reported Rajasthan
For the last ten year Rajasthan Patrika Group has been organizing its own National book Fair at Jaipur which is different from the National Book Fairs held by the National Book Trust. Rajasthan Patrika Group's book fairs are more eventful and popular than the government sponsored book fairs.
Due to the excessive use of internet, the reading habits of children have suffered a setback. I think, the book fairs of this kind help people to buy books and revive the interaction with the print media.
