Rows of hardbound books, the crispness of new pages, shelves neatly lined with pretty diaries and the funkiest stationary items that you have ever seen. If books make you happy, there are copious piles at the Bangalore bookstores to put a smile on your face.

  • Sapna Book House

Books, books and still more books! Sapna is one of the biggest book stores in Bangalore. You’ll see droves of college students walking in and out all through the day. Once they walk in, they disperse into different sections of their interest. The two storeyed bookstore has a separate section for stationery as well. Once you are at the billing counter, don’t look towards your left! Or else the beautiful handmade paper (available in all possible colours) placed in neat stacks there will tempt you to bag them as well.

Address: 3rd Main Road

Near Kamat Yatri Niwas

Gandhi Nagar




  • Crossword

You won’t be able to get over the children’s section here. Crossword is an absolute reader’s delight. Glance through the books and pick one that interests you. Then, find a spot and start reading right away. You’ll find loads of fellow readers plonked in cozy corners deeply engrossed in their newly found treasure. Get a book or pick the movie instead. It’s your call! There is also a music section in case you are interested.

  • Goobes Book Republic

Buy, borrow, read! The little bookstore also has a library option where you can issue books and take them to read. In case you are in Bangalore for long, go ahead and borrow a book. This will give you a chance to visit the place again. Then, there are the piles of second hand books. Hunt carefully through these you might just find the treasure you’ve been searching for everywhere. There are Classics, books in foreign languages and a popular section of graphic novels. Don’t leave anything for the next visit. Pick some for yourself, your little nieces at home, friends, family and everyone else. Make the most of this reader’s house.
