You ain’t the only one then, psst lemme tell you a secret,” Neither did i” ๐Ÿ™‚ (It’s 2 in the morning and I’m in one crazy-cum-sleepy/I’ll sleep when I’m dead mode) Well here some beautiful images taken by my cousin/ behnoee. He did a wonderful job and i thank him for these, i feel like I’m drunk although i have never ever been drunk in my life, ever! but i feel like one right now, hmmm

Book Fair ends today

18 Feb

Yes, the 23rd Lahore International Book Fair at Fortress stadium, Lahore ends today. It would be nice of you to step out of our cave and go buy some books before you go into hibernation again :p Heh! well who am i sass you, i found about the Book Fair yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ But as soon as i found about it, i didn’t waste much time and within an hour, i was among “The Fair people” ๐Ÿ™‚ hoping to find something to grab their interest. People who had already targeted what they were looking for quickly moved from one section to the other, passing all sort ofย  books neatly placed on a table, in wooden wall shelves and metal staLahore International Book Fair 2009nds.

This Book Fair has been organized by the LIBF trust.

The LIBF Trust was set up in 2006 by four leading members of the book trade in Pakistan. They are: Zubair Saeed, Najam Sethi, Saleem Malik and Mohammad Faisal.

The aims and objectives of the LIBFT, which is a non-profit NGO, are to promote the cause of book publishing, book selling and book reading in the country.

I bought two books for myself, one oneย  Cocktails and other solely about Chocolate deserts. ๐Ÿ™‚ If only i had more time i wanted to buy more on science and literature, maybe drawing, but alas! Only visited half of it and it was time to go, had to leave with a thought of coming back today insha Allah and who knows, i just might go there again. Because the place is worth the time, a nice clean place with decent people walking around all sort of books some even on 10-30% discount. I took some pictures of the fair and would have taken more, if only those darn batteries hadn’t died.

Books books everywhere!

Happy Reading folks!
