Over the years, the store has faced many ups and downs, from ownership changes to fire to bombings during WW 2 to the pandemic. But it has not only managed to survive but thrive through all the challenges.
This book place can be any book lover’s paradise with a vast collection of books covering different genres like Literature, Travel, Children’s books, Cooking in different languages like English. Spanish. French and Italian. They have a fabulous collection of ebooks as well.
Besides making books available to the readers, they also organise various events for them like reader trips, workshops, interactions with authors, to name a few.
They have a fascinating concept called ‘Book a bookseller’ where a book lover can book time with a person in the store to get advice and suggestions on books with no time constraint.
They have a café on the premises called Café Momo. What is even more interesting is their magazine which provides recommendations and reviews on books. It is a good platform for readers to know about different authors, both new and old. What is more, one can choose and place an order for a book from the magazine( obviously from the e-magazine!)
This store cares for the environment and follows practices like re-using cardboard boxes and bags made from organic cotton in a world facing environmental disasters. They care about sustainability and the local economy.
At any point, they have more than 90,000 up-to-date titles in stock. Who wouldn’t want to visit this haven?!
