So, we have picked up five places for you to check out for amazing bargains on books. Let’s take you through them.

1. Dariyaganj

Famous for its Sunday Market where one can see streets dotted with books of all colours and sizes, Daryaganj is a reader’s favourite. You can buy a lot of second-hand books in Delhi for a small amount of money. Rejoice! Parking here might be a problem so take our advice and head here via the comfortable and convenient metro. Do remember, the book market only happens on Sundays and if you come here on a weekday, you might not find any books at all!

2. Nai Sarak

The book market in Nai Sarak is one of the popular book markets in Delhi that connects Chandni Chowk and Chawri Bazaar. The lane is dotted with booksellers selling all sorts of books from course books to fiction to autobiography.

You can also pick up all sorts of stationery here for school, office or home, wherever you want at wholesale prices!

3. Connaught Place

The book is not dead. Not in Connaught Place, central Delhi’s colonial-era shopping district. From Oxford book store to Janpath Markets And Palika Bazar, you will find books in every corner. You will find some of the oldest bookstores here. Everyone’s dream!

4. Bahrisons Booksellers

Bahrisons bookstore is special, is the feeling one gets after entering the book store. The bookshop begins in post-partition India – out of the struggle of one man, who – though destined to be a teacher, makes new beginnings in a new country by opening his small bookstore in New Delhi’s Khan Market, India. Today, fifty years after its inception, the place enjoys a landmark status in the city. They also have multiple outlets now.

5. The World Book Fair

Taking place in the month of February, the World Book Fair is a major attraction of book lovers all over India. Often addressed as the ‘Book Capital of India’, Delhi organises the World Book Fair with great gusto at Pragati Maidan. This biannual festival is the world’s second largest book exhibition event and has registered the participation of some 23 countries together! This is also India’s oldest book fair and countless bookworms stream into Pragati Maidan to make it a roaring success every season.
