What Makes It Awesome

To add to the geeky awesomeness of Church Street, The Book Hive - a second-hand bookstore - is a lesser-known, but just as much of a gem as its adjacent book stores. Add it to your book store-hopping pilgrimage while at Church Street. Expect new and rare books for awesome prices.

Bangalore loves its second-hand bookstores and now we have another reason to swing by Church Street - our favourite book hub. A few doors before Third Wave Coffee, you can now find The Bookhive (they changed locations) - a store that specialises in second-hand books. You can find rare copies of Dante rubbing shoulders with other classic doyens from Tolstoy to Dickens. You can get these at a fraction of the original cover price. Look carefully and you may even find first or second editions. 

The store stocks all the latest bestsellers as well. You can pick up brand, new editions of everything from Ramachandra Guha to 30,000 years of Art and Robert Galbraith. The discounts on these, however, are not very steep. 


Having trouble finding a book? Just approach the knowledgeable owner. The Bookhive is accepting orders via WhatsApp, and Facebook and Instagram messages. You can pick up your order at your convenience or have it home delivered through Swiggy or Dunzo. 


Navya considers herself to be the Cassandra of the 21st century – no one ever listens to the wisdom that she so willingly imparts. This is the only Greek tragedy element in her otherwise happy life. She’s got her Husband Charming, has perfected the art of sarcasm, is always fed copious amounts of good food, and is well on her way to self-actualization.
