Sports books not in demand at the World Book Fair

With Commonwealth Games round the corner, sports may be theme of the ongoing World Book Fair here but there seems to be very few takers of such literary works, reports PTI.

At the biennial event, which draws to a close this Sunday, book sellers rued that 2010 CWG has hardly made any difference in sales of sports books.
"Games or no games, our sales of books remains the same. There is no extraordinary surge in sales due to the Commonwealth Games. We have rather received a good response in Frankfurt and Lahore Book Fair," Vivek Thani of 'Khel Sahitya Kendra' told PTI.

Though the theme of this edition's event is 'Reading our Commonwealth: An International Rights Exhibition of Books on Sports', hardly any stall have mentioned about the October 3-14 mega-event except for the pocket book series seen at the entrance of Diamond publishers
