This year's annual book fair at the Convention Centre embraces the Internet. For the first time, it will include a section on cyber bookstores and publishers. The fair, which runs from Wednesday to July 24, will be even bigger than before. Trade Development Council senior exhibitions manager Anne Chick said a record 370 companies would take part and the exhibition area had in creased by more than 30 per cent to accommodate the in creased interest. 'The fair is a one-stop shop where readers can find newly released titles, both on the Internet and printed versions, from Hong Kong and overseas publishers,' Ms Chick said. The popular Night Book Mart has been extended to three evenings - July 21 to 23 - when keen readers can browse through the broad selection until 10 pm. One of the attractions will be a seminar on July 22, hosted by Japanese detective story writer Jiro Akagawa. The writer will also launch his 400th book at the fair.
