Treasures of the Delhi Book Fair 2016 {Book Haul}


India’s capital opened its doors to the 22nd Delhi Book Fair on August 27, bringing in a rush of excitement among the Delhiites. With stalls piled with layers of books at the cheapest rates, bookworms could be found declaring this experience a paradise. For Paper Prancer, it was a dream finally lived.

Trudging about the Fair with a group of loved ones, Paper Prancer managed to procure more that 40 books. Here’s a list of some of the best treasures in the loot {in no particular order}:
