16th North East Book Fair Guwahati

Bibliophiles of this region have reasons to cheer up! The North East Book Fair, a 12 day affair with books is coming soon. You had your share of ups and downs in the entire year and now is time to make plans to wrap up the year on a great note. No doubt, you will have some bright winter afternoons at the venue of 16th North East Book Fair Assam. The rendezvous with books will start much earlier...

North East Book Fair Date and venue

The rendezvous with books will start much earlier this time, in fact as early as November 1, 2014 and will last till 12th November. While it is a good piece of news for book lovers, for school students it is a news not so welcome. Because exams will be going on at schools during the first fortnight of  November. However they will have another book fair in the form of Assam Prakashan Parishad Book Fair 2014 organized by Govt of Assam. North East Book fair as you know already is organized by All Assam Publishers and Book sellers Association.

North East Book Fair 2014 venue will will be Chandmari, Guwahati, precisely at Assam Engineering College playground. Earlier versions of North East Book fairs were also held in this same venue.

What book lovers want
So friends plan you date with books. and friends to spend some great time in advance. I wish Book Publishers and Sellers bring latest publication of literature from other countries along like award winning literature of our times. IN the last North East Book fair 2013 we noticed many visitors who wished to find more books. Stalls based in different places in Assam have identical fare in their kitties. Unique books although not published by themselves will attract more visitors surely. 

Moreover, at a time when online book stores offer attractive price for most books today our book fair has stuck to the 10% discount only. When city dwellers are enjoying great price why burden our people. I strongly believe that little more discount will greatly enhance sell. Book sellers will be at the right side of profit only.
