The craze reflects the popularity of TV soap “Buppesannivas” (“The Love Destiny”) which features this textbook in its programme. The TV drama is set in the period of King Narai (1656 to 1688) -– the most famous Ayutthaya king – who ruled over three centuries ago.

Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn presides over the book fair in the morning and has donated her self-penned book to the huge book-shaped donation box carrying the title “Jindamanee”.
Organised by the Publishers and Booksellers Association of Thailand (PUBAT), the fair aims to encourage Thais to read more. Running through April 8, the event features over 400 publishing houses from 16 countries at nearly 1,000 booths. Fair highlights include plenty of book launches, hi-tech multimedia e-books presentations and graphic design exhibitions.

Another draw is the “Read Again” exhibition featuring historical books in both Thai and English that reflect the development of a reading culture in Thailand and the world.
