Books, books, and more books!

Book Shopping in Delhi’s Daryaganj Book Market!

These are the 20 rupee books!
More books
You can find books of all sorts here...
We noticed that there were more textbooks this time than last time. So now we know what India's been reading. Sad!

    1. The fact that most of the book sellers in this book market don’t value books is both sad and kind of good. Good – because it’s easier to bargain and get them for cheaper than they’re already being sold for.

    1. I know it is sad that they don’t realize the value of the written word. But you have to admit that it does make bargaining easier for those of us who love books no matter what. I didn’t go over the top this time but I did bring home some lovely finds!

  1. I’d love to visit this book market someday! “20 rupee books” sounds fantastic. (; I actually read a post of yours about this market from some time ago because it was Freshly Pressed!

  2. The sight of so many books and cheap at taht is really heartening. If you have the time and patience you could get a long wanted book or a rare find. I have done that at least three times so far.
