Happy Book Store was set up in the year 1947 by owner RJ Jerajani’s grandfather. They redeveloped it in 1983. They have regular fiction and non-fiction books, including self-help and religious anthologies that have a huge demand, cooking books on sugar craft and cake decorating that you won’t find anywhere else, they claim. They also possess limited edition copies and will be happy to help if you want to procure a certain book that’s hard to procure.
