generation, students seem very much interested in reading, its only the
technological revolution that has apparently distance them from books.
all major book sellers of Islamabad held their stalls at the fair which
was aimed to promote the habit of book reading among youngsters.
the end of the fair it turned out that students were not interested to
buy any material which is easily available on the internet .Book sellers
were of the view that since goggle has become a gateway to the world of
knowledge people specially the youth does not seem interested to
The fair offered books on science,
philosophy, medicine, history, culture, religion, literature and world
politics. Yet the stall holders could not sell as much material as they
expected. But what is interesting is that students were deeply
interested in buying Urdu literature featuring books by celebrated
writers including Qudrat Ullah Shahab, Saddat Hassan Manto, Bano
Qudseya, Amjad Islam Amjad, Atta ul Haq Qasmi, Ashfaq Ahmed, Ahmed
Nadeem Qasmi and Mumtaz Mufti .
Book sellers said that the
reason why students are more interested to buy Urdu literature than
anything else is that this material is not easily available on internet.

conclude that students are not interested to read or the habit of book
reading is dying it is just that internet has emerged as the easiest and
quickest tool to seek knowledge".
