BOOKS FLY OFF THE SHELVES LAST DAY
On the final day of the Sharjah International Book Fair 2018, books we’re flying off the shelf as they were being sold for a 50 per cent discount, and some were sold at Dh10.
Classic titles by Roald Dahl and the Goosebumps series by RL Stein, packaged in bright new covers were exceedingly popular among young readers. Cressida Cowell’s How to Train
Your Dragon series of books and the Percy Jackson collection were also popular among the younger readers, according to some of the participating publishers. “It is testament to the fact that young people still love to read,” said an exhibitor at the Al Wesam Company.
