Remember those exhibitions and fests you always bookmark but never end up going to? Don’t do that this time! The 22nd edition of the Delhi Book Fair will not only satisfy the bookworm in you but also help your love for all things artsy. At the same time, you don’t just go stall hopping but also go to their selfie station to indulge in some social media show-off. Sounds good, right?

Book Haul- Just Buy, Buy And Buy!
From Dan Brown novels to academia, the place has everything nominally priced. Stalls have price ranges from Rs.100 for a novel, Rs.50 for one and also three books in Rs. 100! Can you believe it? Self-help books, autobiographies, fiction, non-fiction, the mix is amazing and there’s a lot to choose from.

The Love For Pen And Paper
No matter how many Word documents I open on my computer, everything important first needs a good pen, a diary and a post-it. The Stationary and Office Automation & Corporate Gift Fair 2016 solves almost all stationery woes with brands such as Navneet and Camlin offering discounts and many other smaller but great stalls with everything ranging from computer accessories to paints, paintbrushes, highlighters and notebooks, single pieces as well as in bulk. The only disappointment here is that none, literally none of the stalls had Post-Its. I loved their stuff, but any stationery fair is incomplete without a Post-It for me.

Active Participation
Along with books and other things, the place has interactive reading sessions, an authors’ corner and an app, Fair Catalogue, so that people can find location details of stalls. That makes it so much easier, doesn’t it?
