BOOKS FLY OFF THE SHELVES LAST DAY

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

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.
