Cheenai : The Landmark of Book Stores - 39

Guys, it is the last article ever on the topic of "Shopping In India". Now, it is the turn of Chennai where you can find any expected book from following stores. Just take a look on this information which might help you to find the Book Stores locations here.

LandMark (Nungambakkam High Road near the U.S. consulate) is your best bet for foreign books. Well classified and spacious, it has a wide variety of books on almost every subject. Also has a section on gift articles and children's toys and books.

Fountain Head (Dr. Radhakrishnan Salai or Edward Elliots Road near Jammi Buildings) started as a rival to Landmark to attract the young crowd.

Giggles Bookstore (arcade of the Connemara Hotel, Binnys Road) is about ten feet wide and thirty feet long, and the books are in vertical stacks leaning 3 ft deep against the walls. Open until about 8.00 pm.

Higginbothams (Mount Road, a.k.a. Anna Salai). India's largest bookstores in terms of area. It has a good section on technical books on all subjects, including a good section of India, travel and tourism. Also sells tapes and CDs of Indian classical music. Very popular with tourists partly because of its location.

The Carnatic Music Book Centre (14, Sripuram First Street, Royapettah, near Ajantha Hotel).

Oxford University Press Outlet (behind the US Consulate on Mount Road). The Bookstore at Spencer Plaza (Ground Floor, Anna Salai, Mount Road).

Chennai has a book fair during Dec.-Jan (Dec 15 to Jan 15 usually, but dates vary). So if you are there around that time, check that out. There is a 10-15% discount on all books during that time.
