Book worms in the Valley are in for a treat as authorities have organized a national book fair that is currently attracting thousands of people in the 'Kashmir Haat' ground in Srinagar.

The biggest national book fair has been organized by the National Book Trust (NBT) in collaboration with Jammu and Kashmir Academy for Art, Culture and Languages, Federation of Publishers and Booksellers Associations in India, National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL) and District Administration Srinagar.

Book fair organizer, Vijender Kumar said, "Our aim behind organizing this book fair is to connect people with books. The entry is free here as we want more and more people to come here. Apart from the books of NBT, there are more than 90 publishers here."

The fair-cum-exhibition began on August 23 and will conclude at the end of this month.
