Must-visit Bookstores in Bangalore

I am a self-confessed Bibliophile and have developed a strong liking for these bookstores in Bangalore. If I'm ever near a bookstore, I make it a strict point to visit it. And of course, buy an armload of books! Here are a couple of must-visit bookstores in Namma Bengaluru.

1

Blossom Book House

Blossom Book House

You can buy both first and second hand books here at very cheap rates. What's more is that you can sell your books to the store, and also find some rare books on sale. Blossoms should be considered every time you want to buy even just one book.

Bookworm

Bookworm

Ever since I stumbled upon this store, its been my top favorite and I recommend it to everyone. For me, Bookworm holds the top slot. Used books are found abundantly and I promise your wallet won't cry when you come in here. They're pretty much the best.

Gangarams

Gangarams

Gangarams is one of Bangalore's landmarks. I've not been there yet, but I've heard that its worth checking out.

4

Higginbothams

Higginbothams

Higginbothams on MG Road is quite pricey no matter what book you buy. But they have a wonderful collection of all sorts of books which makes it a must-not-miss store.

Sapna Book House, Gandhinagar

Sapna Book House, Gandhinagar

Gandhinagar is one of Bangalore's hotspot areas and thus finding this store is not a task. Sapna is extremely famous in Bangalore and has many branches, and I personally recommend this branch. The store is cozy, has a good collection and it would be great if you have a Sapna voucher which can be exchanged for books.

Crossword Bookstore, Bannerghatta Road

Crossword Bookstore, Bannerghatta Road

Crossword is generally VERY expensive. But one can see a lot from Penguin Publishers in most of their stores and also books from new authors. So if at you feel adventurous and want to hunt for something new, head to Crossword!

Landmark

Landmark

Landmark is almost everywhere and is quite similar to Crossword in its stock of books and the pricing. Nonetheless, Landmark is nice.

Sapna Book House, Koramangala

Sapna Book House, Koramangala

There are so many books all over but there's not much aside from the general collection that's repeated in all bookstores. Yet, it has a relaxing atmosphere and kind staff.

Sapna Book House, Brigade Road Junction

Sapna Book House, Brigade Road Junction

Again, a large collection but nothing impressive as it stocks a lot of the general book collection any bookstore would have. A plus is that new releases are promptly displayed upfront so you won't have trouble in finding them at all.

Baba Book Store, Navrang

The picture here is NOT of the bookstore as the bookstore doesn't have one of it on Google yet. This bookstore is a very small, cramped one located at Navrang. They're mostly a text books dealer for school. The proprietor is very kind and makes you want to keep going back. In all, they're excellent.
