The selection of books was very impressive indeed. The cookery section is not one I was too interested in, but for the sake of photography it does make for a good photo.
As the day, this one being Saturday, drew to a close, the line (sorry, is it called queue?) at the checkout counter grew longer. This photo, taken at 3pm, is proof enough!
I did miss a few books; conspicuous as they were by their absence. The sine-qua-non for people nowadays, 'The World Is Flat' by Thomas Friedman was one such exception. Till I was told by Swamy that copies had sold out within the first few hours on the first day of the sale itself, and that the book itself had gone in for a third re-print. Okay, so that book was absent for a different reason. I could not spot 'Built To Last' or 'Good To Great' by Jim Collins, or any volume of the 'he History and Culture of the Indian People' series, edited by R. C Majumdar.
