Koramangala's BDA Shopping Complex Has A Hidden Bookstore You Didn't Know About
Started 25 years ago by avid reader Harindra Savanur, IN Touch Books and Magazines is a cozy little store on Koramangala’s BDA Complex. Packed with as many books and magazines as the place can hold, the bookstore offers something for everyone. Meant for readers of all ages, there are picture books and illustrated encyclopaedias for the little ones to fiction and non-fiction books in every genre from mystery to astrology for adults. You will find popular paperbacks by John Grisham and Jeffrey Archer, and even copies of Amar Chitra Katha, which gave us a sweet nostalgia trip. And for all of you hopeless romantics, this store has an entire stand devoted just to Mills & Boon.
Their collection of magazines is equally extensive — and cover current events, health, travel, entertainment and even art. Find everything from The Week and Business Today to Better Homes and Gardens and ART India on their stands. And all the literature here isn’t restricted to just English. You can find some regional texts here in Kannada as well. The books here start at a humble INR 10 with their tiny children’s books and the most expensive book in store is priced at INR 25,000.
