What Makes It Awesome

Readers, if you haven't explored Akshara Books, you really haven't explored the book scene in Hyderabad. Get here to discover rare books and popular ones with new jackets. When you step into Akshara, you're stepping into a different world. A world that's made up of enormous wooden shelves that house books of diverse genres. Stumping your expectations of a regular Hyderabad bookstore, this one is known to receive new stock every day. So, find yourself gawking at the latest releases, and manga like One Piece (Priced at INR 499).

The main hall of the store holds the bestsellers, latest editions, as well as collectibles. But there are two other rooms, out of which one is dedicated for children and Young Adult Fiction where you'll find anniversary editions of Harry Potter and everything Enid Blyton with new jackets along with less discovered ones like Bobbsey Twins.

The second room too left us in awe with an extensive collection of classics (With pretty covers), Agatha Cristie's books as well as Ali Smith. We couldn't help but hoard, and also place a request for the books we'd love to get our hands on. Yup, they gladly take requests. 


If you're looking for some particular, have a chat with the folks at Akshara.
