Yes, you heard that, right? Books in mint condition being sold by their weight and not the retail price. A booklover’s paradise! When I first saw this upcoming event on social media, I was overjoyed and I am sure so were most of the bookworms in the City of Joy. After having marked the dates (24th and 25th September, 2016) on my social calendar and shouted out the news to at least 20 other book loving friends, I contacted the organizers of this amazing book sale.
Terminal_ 11, a new age café situated in the organized maze that is Salt Lake, is famed for their amazing food and even more amazing ambience. They host band gigs, comedy battles and intellectual discussions on every other weekend. Buy Books Per Kg is an event attempted to bring all the book lovers closer and bring a smile on their face.
This is the first time that a book by weight sale is being organized on such a large scale in Kolkata. Recently, a similar one took place in Mumbai and all the book lovers from Kolkata were waiting for such an event. What encouraged you in arranging this event?
Terminal 11 is more than just a café. We always try to promote art and a certain lifestyle. Inside the café itself, we have a huge books section. We believe that if such events can revive the dying reading culture even by a little proportion, we have succeeded 🙂
