The bookshop

Book lovers of Bangalore, attention please. Kindly add "The Blosom", on Church Street, opposite to Ameoba, to your places of interest. The book-store is unique in that it is a used-book store. It gave me a deja-vu of Mumbai's Fort area, but this is even better. The books are well-classified so that one does not have to browse through Sidney Sheldon and Harold Robins if one does not have inclination. And what's more, one can always find a treasure in all the old stuff stacked neatly there, as I found dozens of Pearl Buck and Maugham books. Church street, please!
