Met dsvikki yesterday. Bought a couple of second hand books on MG Road as I was waiting for him to arrive, and after he arrived, we snacked at India Coffee House, and then I introduced him to Church Street’s gift to Bangalore – Blossoms. And all it took was an introduction, to dig a small hole in his pocket. And alas, in mine as well! Blossoms is even better than it was, the last time I was there. Somewhat more expensive than some of the other 2nd hand shops maybe, but it is still a bloody steal. We spent almost an hour there, and then snacked again at Gangotri, where I had Dhokla, after ages.
Here’s the booty:
Darkness at Noon – Arthur Koestler
Heavy Weather – PG Wodehouse
Walden – Thoreau
Lila – Robert Pirsig
Video Night in Kathmandu – Pico Iyer
Lateral Thinking – De Bono
Six Thinking Hats – De Bono
I almost got Primary Colors too, but changed my mind at the last moment. I wonder how many of these are going to end up unread. 😦 And, I didn’t realize Blossoms had a 3rd floor Non Fiction Section too. Thankfully, I didn’t have too much time yesterday, so I just skimmed through it.
Btw, Bala, the fantasy section seems to have expanded greatly in Blossoms. Racks upon racks of fantasy books. You will have fun 🙂
Blossoms is da place!!!
