The Bookworm
Real local / Buy

The Bookworm is a Bangalorean favourite for new and pre-loved copies of books of nearly every genre under the sun. Dig through the piles to find antique gems such as a 20-year-old copy of The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to The Galaxy or an ornately bound Shakespeare. Owner Krishna Gowda is well-loved for his earnest attitude and readiness to help find any book, even if it means upsetting a few precarious piles of novels. You can also return books bought from The Bookworm to get 50% back in store credit, although we dare say you’ll spend that money on another tome.

Pro tip: You can order books from the Bookworm and have them delivered home via Dunzo or Swiggy Genie. Contact Mr Krishna on WhatsApp.
