12 Best Bookstores In Mumbai For Every Kind Of Bibliophile

Interested in discovering with: Family, Friends, Couples, Children, Singles

A bookstore is like a galaxy, holding all the worlds we can’t even imagine, including those just across the globe. If books provide us with access to countless worlds, then bookstores are like universes. When you open a book, you are transported to a parallel world of your choice and you can spend hours absorbing the information therein. We agree with the famous words of Game Of Thrones author George R. R. Martin: “The man who never reads lives only one life.” Let us show you what Mumbai’s best bookstores have to offer, so you can live your own life to the fullest.

  • Wayword & Wise

Address: Strategic house, 44, Mint Rd, Ballard Estate, Fort, Mumbai
Time : 10:00:00 to 21:30:00

Description: What To Buy At Wayword & Wise, The Best-Curated Bookshop In The City

Bookshop Wayword & Wise might be the city’s most thoughtfully curated bookshop. This Ballard Estate bookshop, located five minutes from CST, sells around 7,000 books, selected carefully from over three lakh books by the shop’s owner, Atul Sud, and its curator, Virat Chandok.

The bookshop is ideal for bookworms seeking something unique. If you’re tired of Flipkart and Amazon and have forgotten what it’s like to discover a new book in a beautiful, hushed bookstore, head here. Its fiction aisle, which extends the length of the store, includes both Helen Fielding and Paul Auster.

Founded by a discerning reader committed to discovering titles on Amazon and Flipkart (at least not organically), Wayword & Wise is a bookshop for discerning readers. Their collection has a lot of thought, attention to detail, and variety. We recommend you spend a day here browsing and discovering your next favourite book.
