Are you someone who gets turned on the by the smell of old books? Someone who has piles and piles of books occupying a significant amount of space in your apartment? So Delhi discovered this new bookshop in town, and your pile is only about to increase. Simply called ‘Book Shop’, the book store is situated inside Lajpat Bhawan near the Moolchand metro station.
It really has an old world charm around it, with books costing as little as Rs 10 (the old ones especially), and fresh copies of the latest bestsellers too. A decent 50 Shades of Grey copy is available for just Rs 150!
Something that is really impressive about the store is the sheer variety of books in stock – right from really old classics to the B-novels and some new ones too, stacked side by side in an unorganised manner. The books are by the thousands and if it pleases you, you can sit here and go through all of them and come up with a bunch of your which you could read or buy.
The homely vibe of the bookstore is more inviting for bibliophiles. The store remains open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.30 am and 1 pm. The store also invites contributions from your own book collection. So if you like the place, you could spread the cheer by sharing some of your own favourite books.
