We trace Mumbai’s very best offerings for book lovers, including cozy, warmly lit bookstores catering to specific genres, huge sprawling ones with in-house cafes, and century-old, rundown, dusty stores with the most obscure collections.
This comic book library and café has outdoor tables and indoor cushion seating, delightful décor including cartoons on the walls, and a stunning collection of manga, graphic novels, and comics. You can rent graphic novels and comics online and get them delivered to (and picked up from) your doorstep.
Sterling has been among the city’s best places to find textbooks and non-fiction reads for over 70 years. Carrying books ranging from defence studies to philosophy, Sterling is well stocked and as relevant to the city today as it was half a decade ago.
