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

Ten-Second Takeaway

While Blossom Book House {the original one} remains the Mecca for old/used/new books for people in Bengaluru, Koramangala has its own Blossom of sorts. And it goes by a very simple name called Book Fair.

365 Days Of Books

Most Koramangala people might even not know about this store, but Book Fair, located at the entrance of 6th Block Koramangala is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. If you miss out on the pale white signboard that reads “Book Fair”, look out for the yellow signboard that reads Munireddy Eramma Kalyana Mantapa. But really, what’s most hard to miss are the stacks of books that are arranged just outside at the entrance itself. A welcoming sight indeed if you ask us! The collection of books range from fiction to physics and non-fiction to self-help books.

We spotted books such as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not 2007 and Inheritance {a four-part series on dragons} selling for a mere 100 bucks. Oh yes, there’s a huge section that sells books for 100 bucks. If you search hard, you’ll find treasures here like a first edition hardcover of Life of Pi for just INR 100, a biography of Beat poet Allen Ginsberg and a lot of Bill Bryson. If you are anything like us, that is collecting same books with different cover designs, you will see that this place has a lot of them. We spotted seven different editions of classics like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, RK Narayan’s The Guide, and Roal Dahl’s The BFG. There is also a decent graphic novel section to be found here.

Make A Booking

The place is hardly crowded (surprising since it’s in a prime location), so you have the freedom to browse through the various sections. 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 Cusines.

LBBTip

The place is quite dusty, so be sure to carry a handkerchief. Also, they accept cards and it’s good if you carry a bag with you as they don’t usually stock up on those.
