Treasure of books in the book shop for bibliophiles

If staying in a corner snug and pouring yourself down into a book, with a mug of coffee is all you are about and mostly consists of what you wanna do with your off days and on top of that if you happen to stay in the capital, then dear bibliophile this is the article for you.

Next time you look at that overflowing book shelf and feel it needs newer unread books, an upgrade… Well, you can head to Lajpat Bhawan near the Moolchand metro station and get your fill.

The haven for book readers is simply called “book shop”, yeah! Talk about minimalism and the book shop remains open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays between 10:30 a.m to 1:00 p.m and lies inside the Lajpat Bhawan.

Now, why should you check this one out? Because it has the most welcoming old world charm of bookshops, that of a household library, and not only this you can sit down and go through thousands of unorganized books, kept in all the shelves, ranging from classics to B- novels to as recent as anything for as much as Rs.8/- to 150/- (did I say homely, and nothing spells homely like unorganized) and not only read you can make someone party to your favorite collections too.

The book shop invites warmly any new volunteer and any donations by anyone, so next time you feel the urge to splurge on wordy friends of humans, you can go rushing to the book shop.
