If you were to stop by the Chennai Book Fair at the St George’s School grounds, it would be difficult to miss the pavement on the opposite side of Poonamallee High Road. Welcome to the world of the ‘other’ book fair. Bringing the glorious tradition of providing Chennai’s readers with second hand books forward again, close to 20 booksellers from their Mount Road and Moore Market outlets, have spread out their collections outside Pachaiyappa’s College. “We began a day before the book fair and will wind up the day after they clear out,” says Nagesh, a book seller specialising in fictions, with pride.
