Located on the first floor of Velachery's Grand Square mall, we are in love with Zakka. Although tiny, this bookstore offers a world full of curated books from across the world. Does a Gardening book from Reader's Digest sound fancy to you? You can get that and a lot more here.
Autobiographies, fictional novels from Enid Blyton, Danielle Steel, David Baldacci, John Grisham and Stephen King (Blaze, Misery, In The Tall Grass, The Mist), self-help books from Robin Sharma and plenty of expensive and hard to find art and craft books can be found here. But the best part - everything is available at a discount. From a minimum of 5 percent to up to 70 percent, Zakka offers original books as well as second-hand books in top-notch quality at discounted prices. Their collection of guides and books for competitive exams and medical studies is available at really nominal prices.
We particularly love their collection of art & craft and children's books. Novels, doodling books, general studies books, animal stories, picture books, Reader's Digest story compilations, drawing and colouring books - Zakka has them all and at steal-worthy prices. And this is not seasonal - they offer books at slashed prices round the year. The idea behind the store they say is to offer a curated collection of the best books that are there for everyone. Yayyy! They can even source books for you from anywhere in the world. Just drop a request with Abdur, who manages to store, and he will get the book for you.
