There is a huge book sale going on at Sundarabai Hall, Churchgate. A one of its kind sale, they are selling books by kilo. One kilo costs you Rs. 200. Mills & Boon & some sets are charged differently.
Yesterday I had been to this sale & picked up 11 books (smiling gleefully!) for just Rs. 410!! There are many books from various genres. There is fiction, non fiction, travel, cooking, complete sets of encyclopedias, atlases, travel guides, etc. This sale has been on since last week. And as I was quite late going there, most of the good books were already sold out. I picked up the last copy of Da Vinci Code. Jeffrey Archer, the rest of Dan Brown, LOTR, etc were all sold out. 😦 There are two boxfulls of Mills & Boons books.While I was there a final set of Harry Potter was still on the table. 🙂
All these book are second hand but are in pretty good shape. No torn covers, drenched & crumpled & covered in dust pages here. The exhibition is well organized with a proper site map indicating which section can be found where. Please carry your own bag with you as they don’t provide any plastic bags…you wouldn’t want to leave behind any book just because you couldn’t carry it back home!
The sale ends on 24th March 2013. The timings are from 10 AM – 8 PM
