Three friends browse through books at a stall at the Ekushey Boi Mela yesterday, the sixth day of the fair, in the capital’s Suhrawardy Udyan. Contrary to the growing belief that books are becoming obsolete among the younger generations in the digital age, young readers are visiting the fair every day, flocking the stalls in search of their next great read.
