What Is It?
Wanna stock up on books to add to your never ending list of books to read? Here’s your chance to buy them by the kilo. Booksbyweight, a book store in Mumbai, is having a book fair at Basava Bhavan where you can buy books by the kilo. They have fiction, romance, cookery, history, health and children’s books in stock. We’re definitely marking our calendars for this and you should too!
Who Is It For?
Bookworms, bibliophiles and all of you looking to start a cool, one-of-a-kind library.
Why Should I Go For It?
Because a Kindle just doesn’t cut it, sometimes. Sure, you can download many of these books, but the feeling of flipping pages with your fingers is irreplaceable and the smell of books, let's not get started on that. The children’s books are at 200 pops a kilo and everything else at 100, so you can’t even argue about prices. We think it’s a good chance to do our part in reviving some good ol’ print, folks.
When: Friday, February 24 to Sunday, March 5
Where: Basava Bhavan, Race Course Road, Basaveshwara Circle
Price: INR 200 per kilo for all children’s books, INR 100 per kilo for everything else
