Sri Lanka’s largest book exhibition, 'Colombo International Book Fair', commenced today at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH). The book fair organised by the Sri Lanka Book Publishers' Association will be held until October 1 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Pix by Kithsiri de Mel
This book fair is the perfect place for both the young and the young at heart to feast on "food for the brain." It's like a buffet for your intellect, and the best part? No calories! So, grab your reading glasses and get ready to indulge in some "brain snacks" that won't add to your waistline.

Constant engagement with and in the virtual world often leads to fake news, racism, hate speech against others and stupid thinking, the cognitive performance of the brain is reduced and the social ability of the individual decreases!!! Books enrich the world, open up new and old worlds to us, expand our imaginative world, and enable us to freely choose what we like! Literature, poetics, philosophy, etc. We can select everything according to interest, taste and current emotional state, put it aside, reflect on it and read it again! For children in their development and a successful life, there is nothing better than reading good books!!!
