Flash sales will be available for the whole length of the event with discounts from 30 to 70 per cent on all books.
With each day of the book fair, a special event will also be conducted to give out gifts and other unique offers for buying books at the fair.
Nguyễn Hà Uyên Nhi, a university student who participated in the book fair, said that she went to the book fair because of the gorgeous book covers there, and hoped to find the perfect book for herself.
“I didn't think the first day of the book fair would be so crowded because this morning everyone is still at school and working,” she added.
