The Year-Round Koramangala Book Fair That You Probably Didn't Know About

Sure, Blossom Book House remains the go-to place for people to score used and new books in the city, but if you are in Koramangala, then you need to hit up Book Fair. 

Great For

Large Selection, Budget

Large Selection, Budget

It's a treasure trove for finding books of all genres and ages in either used or pristine condition. Pick from fiction to physics and non-fiction to self-help books and while you are browsing through the collection, you will find even the most obscure books amongst it -- think books on horse care and animal husbandry. We spotted gems like Ripley's Believe it Or Not and Inheritance selling for a mere INR 100. Oh yes guys, the prices here start at as low as INR 10, and these are for those 50-page easy cookbooks. 

If you search real hard under piles and racks, you will find treasures like we did -- a first edition hardcover copy of Life of Pi and a biography of beat poet Allen Ginsberg. We spotted atleast seven different editions of classics like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, RK Narayan’s The Guide, and Roal Dahl’s The BFG. We usually pop in from time to time to see what books they have in store and especially to check out the food & drinks sections because we like digging up recipe books that we have never read such as Jamie Oliver’s Happy Days with the Naked Chef or heard about 1001 Konkan Cuisines

What Could Be Better

The place is quite dusty, so be sure to carry a handkerchief if you are allergic to dust.

Pro-Tip

They accept cards and it’s good if you carry a bag with you as they don’t usually stock up on those.
