Lemunty | 2 comments Where do you guys source your books from? I've been in Bangalore and I go to all the usual places: Select, Blossoms, Bookworm, Crossword, and so on.

I've also noticed that there are very few raddi-walas, you know, the sort who stock old magazines and sometimes comics too, and occasionally have stacks of cheap paperbacks.

Any hidden gems? Secret bookshops? Good places to go to?

Ashwini (bookshelver) | 7 comments Hi Lemunty,

For environmental reasons, I try not to buy books (Ok you can roll your eyes, I'm used to this whenever I state the above comment! ;-) ) I make it a point to keep my eyes peeled out for good libraries. And when Bangalore traffic got crazy, I was so relieved to find lending libraries that deliver books home. I was a member of one such. Now I hear there are more such libraries which do not have late fines! Like JustBooksCLC,MyLib etc! How I long to get back to Bangalore!! Sigh! But yes, I used to spend hours at Crosswords and Landmark just to chill and look for new books that I could ask my library to order! ;-)

Anbu (anbutheone) When it comes to books, I would just forget environment and other stuffs and try to buy more hard copies.

My favourite shops to buy the books are LandMark, Crosswords and Strand.
