I went to the Strand Bookstore website yesterday wondering when they’d announce their annual book festival. No news yesterday. A few minutes ago, an email from Strand pops in to my mailbox, saying this:
Coming Soon !
The Strand Book Festival at Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium
Fri 14 -Sun 30 Dec
Discounts upto 80%
Fabulous selections for adults and children !!
Readers, set a day aside !
I’m sure they’ll send another email about the exact location and the times, but mark your calendars just the same and prepare to find some interesting books.
Though the selection is huge and sometimes overwhelming, I’ve always found interesting books at the festival, so I’m always up for craning my neck to browse for good, serendipitous finds.
