Sharing books has got grander and bigger. This Sunday, Bangalore is hosting its fifth book sharing fair called Pustaka Parishe. The fair will host over a million books. The best part is that all these books are absolutely free. You can walk in and go home with a free book of your choice.
All the books at the fair have been donated by people, or should we say shared by book lovers. Hence no books are for sale at this unique book fair. Any visitor is free to pick any one book. Last year over a lakh books were shared at the event. This year the organizers have collected 10 lakh books. You could also share your books if you wish to. Entry is free. The only rule here is that you cannot buy or sell any books. You can only share.
The collection has books of various languages including English and Kannada. This time, there will also be cultural programme and interaction with authors.
The Parishe is being organised by Basavanagudi-based Srushti Ventures in association with the Kannada Book Authority. Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar will inaugurate the fair at National College Grounds, Basavangudi at 9 a.m on October 7. It would be open to the public from 9.30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Woodpie wishes success to the Pustaka Parishe!
Happy Sharing! Happy Reading!
