The book fair also boasts a big collection of audiobooks, said publishers. Bangla Academy has its own stall at the children’s corner called Shishuder Boi and is selling new books by Imdadul Haq Milon  called “Abdullah” and Shamsul Haq’s “Boi Pora Bhari Moja.” Publishers said they were happy with the number of people visiting the fair adding that most of the children’s books are sold on Fridays at Shishu Porhor.
