BookPal has both an online and offline presence, with a wide range of books to choose from and an easy membership procedure. You can go to their physical stores scattered across Delhi NCR or order online and have books home-delivered.

Read Between The Lines
The most charitable of ideas, Read Between The Lines is a library that you run! Leave a book that you have read, and pick up anything you want to read from here. Nestled at HUDA City Centre, their rule is that you can only take a book home if you leave one there to replace it. If you don’t want to part with your books, you can just sit there and read as much as you want.
No more shelling out money and emptying closets for your growing collection because you can come here and stumble across something interesting without making the space commitment.
P.S. If you find the locked, just ask the guard in the office next door to open it up for you.
