The best 5 places to shop for in HYDERABAD books are


This place is full of book shops, you have shops like

A.H.Wheeler who are dealing in books since very long

Even before formation of Andhra Pardesh.

Every SUNDAY Abids has a roadside display of books.  The

People who erect these temprory stands are so helpful to you

They are selling well known pocket editions, hardcover editions

At very reduced prices, no book costs more than Rs.200, its

A Gem of a place for all those people who have large friends

Circle, you constantly take books on loans and never return.

I have a inner Library in my house which is not just a old Almirah

Where I keep my most priced possessions for the day my Kids

Will grow up and ask me for their inheritance.  I am saving some

Books for that purpose.

Outer library I keep books purchased from the second hand stand

From Abids Circle. This place has People who cannot afford to open

a shop and who has purchased some closing down libraries bring their

wares to this Market place and, You can see the gatherings here

Crowds coming in Cars, Scootors, Motorcycles, Walking

In City Buses. Sometimes my elder brother tells me, what are you

Doing this Sunday if you are free. We will go to Abids for Books.

This place is like a books exhibition going on. You have all the

Books, you can imagine just tell the people who are dealing

in these old books what writer you want, they will either get it

From their collection or they will ask their friends spread around

To check their collections for the writer and the title.


This Place has 2 Medical Colleges, Womens College, Arts College

Many, Many private colleges and schools. Its like central area

For Schools and Colleges. If you dont find books here what will

You find there?

Here books are a little costlier compared to Abids, but their condition

Is better and their bindings are very good, here you can buy books

For your inner library and for the inheritance of your kids.

Koti has a permanent Books Exhibition Pavallion, in this place some

Organization or other is 12 months all year round sell books under

One discount scheme or another. The trouble is the people who

Hire this space from the Muncipal Corporation has a particular

Subject books to market, so they dont have variety as you can

Find in open market.

Anyway this is a place for books also they put adverts in local

Newspapers for what type of books you can find in this exhibition.

Nampally Railway Station

Apart from Railway Station bookstands you have many book stalls

Around here, where usually you find all sorts of magazines and

Newspapers, you name it, you have it here. There are few books

On general utility and general purpose self improvement books.

Troop Bazar

This Bazar has everything, for bangle stores, to Jewellery store to

Electronics stores to Book stores, This is the place with a lot of

Concentration of printing presses. So around printing press we dont

Find book shops, its not quiet proper.

So we have books, with lot of attractive covers and very big prices

Anyway, shopping can be done for many books and many local

Language materials also like Urdu Language, Telugu Language

English and other languages.

This is a publishers market and a few consumer shops for books.

Paradise Circle

This place is in the twin city of Hyderabad which is Secundrabad

This city was made to accomodate the British Regiment during

The times of Nizam of Hyderabad. So we have lots of Christians

Here and also some of the British people who fell in love with

India, did not go back to their countries because they have their

Good families here in India rather than go back to their Bad

Families in Britain. Anyway this place has lot of book shops and

Lot of libraries, where you can take books on rent. It is as low

As 50 Paisa per 24 hours, the rent.  Same Libraries also sell

New books to anybody who desire to buy. So this place has

Books on demands also.

A book is a friend for life.
