My Book Friend

A few years back, in the most unusual place, I found a bookseller who did not just ​sell books. He shared stories from books ​that ​he sold with so much passion that I always ended up buying those​ books​. This video is my little gift to this Book Friend, who’s given me the joy of reading some of the best books ever written.

  1. Beautiful. Mr. Ansari’s love for books and reading just shines across. Thank you Aarti Srinivasan for this little homage to second-hand booksellers 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Sonika for those beautiful words of encouragement. Means a lot!!!

  2. Dear Aarthi…..
    How lovely!! This took me back to my college days, browsing the second hand books in the Fountain area and a small book shop that I frequented in Bandra…..Happy Book Stall.
    The recommendations the bookseller at Happy gave me were always spot on. Amazing how their love for books and relationship with their customers makes them some of the most ardent flag bearers for reading and bookish love.

  3. Wow, I never knew these sellers were themselves book lovers! Thank you so much for sharing. This is very insightful!
