The 26th Lahore International Book Fair 2012 was held between 3rd and 7th Feb. I obviously went and got a few books from there.
The two main book sellers there, the ones selling a ton of YA books as well as others were Liberty Books and Readings. I was presently surprised to see so many well known titles finally in Pakistan!
I just wish they were better organized and the books weren't that expensive. *sigh*
Since it was a book fair, a lot of book sellers were offering tiny discounts to promote their stalls.
Liberty Books had a whole table where brand new books were offered for as little as a hundred rupees (a bit more than a dollar) to 300 rupees. I bought three good books from that table.
Over all, all their books had 15% off, just for those days. I got another book for 845 rupees, which yes, is quite a lot, but I really, really wanted it- I LOVE Cecilia Ahern!
I was extremely happy to see the wide variety of young adult books at both Liberty Books and Readings. Readings, especially had SO many well known titles!

Liberty books is a bookstore based in Karachi. It is, however going to open up a shop here in Lahore too, sometime this year. Readings is solely a Lahore book shop. I'm planning to go thoroughly review it for the blog one of these days, so stay tuned for that!
