I and my son Alan Jeffsan went to Chennai book fair 2010. We started our journey from Puzhuthivakkam house to St. Thomas Mount Railway station by hero Honda splendor bike, from there to nungampakkam Railway station by electric train and then from there to St.George Anglo Indian School,(opp to Pachayappan college) by auto for Rs. 30.00 only. While coming back we gave Rs 40.00, Latter I realized the auto driver cheated us (After we reached nungampakkam Railway station). He stopped the vehicle some where, and from there we walked a bit to reach the station.
Entrance fee for me Rs 5.00, for my son its free.
But I really enjoyed the verities of book that were showcased. Alan bought a coupe of books like
- Art tutorial books (Volume I to V)
- Ben 10 coloring book
- Ben 10 Scratch Magic (The book was with blank papers, you have to scratch the pencil in the paper to get the hidden image – any one of the famous ben10 characters )
- Mathematics for school kids
- Basic Interactive learning DVD (Maths for kids)
- Chemistry table – Periodic Table of Elements and Chemistry
- Chess book
- Moral story books
People were selling mineral water filled tumblers, bottles and some beverage (we never heard about the brand ). There were so many books for sales from different authors, publishers, states ….. books were displayed for sales to cover all age groups. Different shaped book for activities was the best one, which attracted so many kids.
The booksellers and publishers association of South India have arranged this event. Thanks to all those who worked hard to achieve this book fair a mega success .. 🙂
