Discover the literary charm of the Doon Valley through its exceptional independent bookstores.
Bookstores are at the center of the social and cultural fabric of any city across the globe.
Dehradun, in the foothills of the Himalayas is no different!
The Doon Valley has always boasted of some amazing independent bookstores, perhaps due to the density of amazing authors per square kilometer.
These independent bookstores have always been a treasure trove of stories from the Himalayas by eminent authors like Ruskin Bond, Allen Sealey, Bill Aitken, Ganesh Saili, Stephen Alter and many more.
Off late, the bookstore universe of Doon Valley has expanded with the coming of bookstore chains which are going to be the present and the future, at the same time preserving the past literary glory of Doon.
Shelfebook Bookstore is one such addition, nestled inside the Pacific Mall, Rajpur Road, Dehradun overlooking the beautiful Mussoorie.
The book collection is eclectic with a good mix of all genres, carefully curated to serenade the modern reader!
Entering the bookstore one notices a wholesome collection of children's books on the right and a Manga Selfie Wall on the left.
An old-timer like me immediately realizes the shift in Doon and what the future holds.
Scouring through the bookshelves of informative and popular non-fiction, fantasy books and the best fiction from across the globe, I am convinced that this will be a store to reckon with in the future.
Well, to celebrate the coming of Shelfebook Bookstore to Doon, the bookstore chain is organizing its flagship book festival from 16-18 December with a gamut of book activities.
Shelfebook is India's most versatile chain of bookstores
