Many people might think that movies are better than books, and I totally agree but, books provide a different kind of experience altogether. As a book lover myself, it is evident that when you want to relax, spend a holiday or go to sleep, a book in hand is one of the best activities you can do. In cities such as Bangalore, the fast pace of life stands in the way of experiencing a calm environment or a good book.
Each Sunday, I imagine where I can read a book sitting peacefully. It's quite a lot of work to find a good book and more difficult to find a good place to read. You think of reading it in your room, however someone or the other visits on a weekend, and it disturbs you, or your friends come over to party all night long. It's a crazy time you got in Bangalore.
Well, here's a solution for all the book lovers out there. Book cafes are the new thing. It's a culmination of a cafe meeting a library. You can enjoy a cup of joe and also a good book to change your mood and make it wonderful again. So to make things easier for you and for me, I've found a list of the best book cafes in Bangalore. So let's read on!!
