What Is It?

Bookchor.com, a collective aimed at spreading the love for reading, is bringing its country wide warehouse book sale to Chennai next month. The warehouse sale will have over 90,000 second hand books to choose from across a range of genres. Not only that there will be other customers bringing their own books to sell, basically a yard sale for books, just on a very big level.

To make things more interesting, the way you buy books is not by paying per book, but by paying money for a box that you can buy to fill up entirely with books. There are three sizes of boxes depending on the package you choose; Odysseus, Perseus and Hercules. The Odysseus box can fit 8-10 books and costs INR 900. The Perseus box costs INR 1,499 and can hold between 15-17 books. The largest, the Hercules box, is a Herculean task to carry, as it costs INR 2,499 and can hold 30 books! Needless to say if one box is not enough, you can always buy another.

Who Is It For?

Book lovers, if ever there was an event meant for you, this is it. We haven’t seen a book sale on this scale, and the fact that it’s wholesale means you can pick up an entire bookshelf’s worth of books for less than INR 100 per book! That means you can find bestsellers and classic collection books (like Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter) for less than INR 100, perfect for putting together book collections you’ve been putting off.

Why Should I Go For It?

Wholesale books in Chennai have been a hit or miss in places like Moore Market because you never know what to expect. But a nationally organised book sale like this means that for three days all stock is new and your chance at finding something you want is a lot higher and a lot cheaper. So go ahead and tell your fellow bookworms about the Lock The Box: Bookchor sale coming next month and check it out when it comes!
