33rd Chennai book fair, 2010

Thought I will start 2010 by having some good books and Chennai book fair was the best pick

Who said people who read books are an endangered species?

Its a mega fair

Good to see Arthur C. Clarke's 2010: Odyssey in 2010

Now some very interesting stalls

On Jan 15, 2010 World will witness a major solar eclipse and here you will get special specs to view the eclipse

When almost all other stalls have ordinary steel book shelves, this stall has shelves made of bamboo

I am a regular visitor to Chennai book fair and this trend is ever growing. The number of stalls of spiritual leaders and their literature

Right from Ramana Maharshi

To The spiritually incorrect mystic, Osho

Telling everyone to come and share him

And half a dozen more

Now my picks from the fair

iWoz by Steve Wozniak, now thats an Apple hat-trick, I have already finished iCon by Steve Jobs and Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple by John Sculley

The Tipping Point by Malcom Galdwell

Osho's A new vision of women's liberation

I have already started The Tipping Point
