9 Places Every Book Lover In Nagpur Must Know About

Our weekend is sorted, what about yours?

Nagpur, Book lovers, bookstores, libraries, book cafes

We are surrounded by gadgets all the time. Be it our phones (err, sorry smartphones!), tablets or laptops. It almost feels like we live in a virtual bubble. Even as I type this article, I am checking my phone every few minutes. Right from our food to fashion, everything comes to us through a screen. As the screens in our hands become bigger and bigger, our worldview becomes smaller.

But even in this era dominated by gadgets, what is keeping the world sane is books, the real books (For book lovers, ebooks are not the genuine stuff). I know Kindles are convenient, have an amazing storage capacity and don’t really occupy much space, but the joy of holding a paperback or hardcover book is unmatched!

Nagpur still has book lovers who crave for quiet weekends with books and maybe some coffee. Since the weekend is here, we thought why not give the Nagpur bookworms a few places where they could have a good time.

Rajaram Sitaram Dixit Library
