An iconic and unique place for those who are on a quest to acquire a priceless treasure. One of the oldest book stores in Bangalore, Select Book Shop quietly sits on an offbeat path perpendicular to the bustling Brigade Road. Established in the year 1945 by Mr Murthy, this bookshop is a huge treasure chest containing a plethora of old and rare books collected by Mr Murthy and his late father over 70 years. As you step into the literary haven, you will find piles of a variety of books spreading across the rooms along with magazines and comic books. The second floor also has a lot of books of different genre teamed up with pretty artwork and old knick-knacks here and there. It is interesting to know that Ruskin Bond remains a regular customer here and often visits this establishment to meet the owner. Mr Murthy has a lot of interesting and enthralling stories to tell if you are ever interested. A historical landmark that every book lover must visit when in Bangalore.
