A 9-day long book fair – “Load The Box – by Kitab Lovers”, is all set to kick off at Lajpat Rai Bhawan, Sector 15 here from April 8-16, 2023. The event will feature over 10 lakh new and pre-owned books from over 20 plus genres.
Talking about the fair, Rahul Pandey, Co-Founder of ‘Kitab Lovers’, said, “We are delighted to host the book fair in Chandigarh. This is our second event in the city, and we are so happy to be back. Our book fair offers books at the most affordable costs and most importantly, serves a wide range of book readers. From toddlers to senior citizens, whether customers are into mystery, self-help, romance, or fiction, we have books for everyone.”
What makes the ‘Kitab Lovers’ book fair special is its innovative ‘Load The Box’ concept, wherein book lovers who visit the fair can make a one-time payment for a box and fill the box with as many books as the box can hold. The boxes are available in three sizes ranging from Rs 1199 to Rs 2999.
Rahul added, “The Book Fair assumes significance to bring book-reading back in trend, especially because in the digital age the book-reading habit has declined drastically. While the internet and social media offer us tremendous entertainment, they can never replace the wealth of knowledge that a good book can offer. We urge more people, especially parents to attend our book fair, just browse through the books we have on display, and fall in love with reading again.”
Since its inception in 2019, ‘Kitab Lovers’ has hosted over 50 book fairs in 20 cities all over India. Through its ‘Load The Box’ campaign, Kitab Lovers is on an ambitious mission: to make reading affordable and accessible for every Indian and spread the love for reading all over the country.
