« Book reading habits in north Tamil Nadu | Main | Narayana Murthy mulling a role in politics, says Straits Times »

Would increasing supply of books via more shelf space increase the demand for books as well? In Delhi, I noticed that bookstores are never crowded. They are mostly located in the richer part (South Delhi) or Connaught place and target audience seems to be the elite minority, expatriates, diplomats. Libraries are almost non-existent and book reading is just not in fashion for majority of population. People do read lots of magazines and newspapers but books will need a major cultural shift.
