If you are a lover of books and you are in Chennai or going to be Chennai on these dates, the annual Chennai Book Fair, which I guess is one of the largest book fairs in the world, is a must-visit. You’ll find a phenomenal collection of Tamil books as well as English books. You’ll also find some old and rare books along with digital books/visual content.

On this occasion, I would also like to do some self-promotion for my own novel in English – The Archers Revenge that you can buy on Amazon 🙂

Follow the Facebook page of the organizer – BAPASI for all the latest updates on the book fair.
