The premises of Amar Ekushey Book Fair are buzzing with writers, publishers and booklovers.

While visiting the month-long book-fair on the fifth day on Monday, this correspondent saw a huge crowd of writers and readers on the Suhrawardy Udyan, part of the fair premises.

Readers were seen buying books and taking autographs and selfies with their favourite writers.

Munzereen Shahid, a young writer was seen surrounded by readers at the stall of Tamralipi Prokashoni.

She was struggling to give autographs and pose for selfies to her fans with a smiling face.

This year, two new books of Munzereen titled "Ghor-e Bose Spoken English" and "Sobar Jonno Vocabulary" have been published at the book fair.

While asked her feeling about the book fair, she said, "I'm feeling so happy coming to the book fair. This is the first book fair where my two new books have been published. I'm so grateful and happy."
