discussion2 (1).pngHey Book worms 🙂

Today I am doing a Discussion Post after a long time . I love talking to you guys because it’s so fun and enriching and the best part is that we share our opinions together. Recently I read an ARC –Bookshop Girls and even reviewed it on the blog. It’s a cute YA READ , a story of a 16 year old girl,Paige and her best friend ,Holly, trying to save their town’s only Bookshop from closing down . What follows is a hilarious account of saving that Bennet Bookshop.

This book kind of reminded of the love I have for Bookshops. Ever since I was small I always wanted Mom and Dad to take me and my sister to Bookshops. And the love is still going strong. Though I have so many books in my house that I sometimes my Mom kinda implements a Book Ban ,in which I am not allowed to buy books. So it reduces my visits for sometimes but I bounce back and buy loads of BOOKS once the Ban is over .  It’s a comfort zone for me .

I am not really a fan of online shopping because bookshops matter to me a lot for the following reasons:

1.Books and Book Everywhere:

Even though I don’t buy all the books at the store . But the presence of soooooo many books is itself like divine . I could stay there for the rest of my life. (Seriously) Also a visit means that I get to know about so many  New Books and that is kind of important when you are a book blogger. Plus I love the smell of new books.

2.Buying books:

Now I know this is an obvious reason(and silly too) but had to put it out here. Even though my house is crammed with hundreds of books I still can’t resist grabbing a few new releases. 18898577

3.Ambience:

Nowadays there is soft music playing in the bookshops and that is so relaxing. It makes the visit very memorable. One of my favorite bookshops in New Delhi has a cafe in the middle of the shop where you get free coffee for buying above a given amount and that is really fun .

4.Sneak peeks at other books:

Who doesn’t do this ? I definitely read the first page or two when I am planning to buy a book. In fact, at one particular favourite bookshop I could browse and sit and read for an hour or so. It was a great way to know more about a book. That can only happen if the bookshop is big, so that you can just sneak into a nook and sit and read.

This post  has creative inputs by my sister,Shruti . You can find her in Goodreads.
