We’re bombarded by stories. In the press, on TV, via the likes of Star World and HBO, in the cinema, on your shiny e-book, and over the dinner table. Stories are swapped by the hundreds of thousands every day. However, our favourite form of story swapping has to be through books.

Call us nostalgic, call us boorish, but nothing compares to the feeling of a book in hand, with a clean cover and that fresh book smell wafting through the air. Take a deep breath, and check out this list of book stores in Gurgaon.
