Wayword and Wise Bookstore, South Palm Bay #Best in Mumbai
The next bookstore that we’re discussing about is called Wayword and Wise bookstore and it is located in South Palm Bay Mumbai in the fort area. There are two really amazing things about this bookstore, number one is the way it looks. It has such an old colonial architectural feel to it and looks old and historical.
The second really cool thing about it is the kind of books that it keeps while other bookstores keep extremely popular books that everyone wants to read and like really popular authors that everyone knows.
Wayword and wise has a completely different selection of books. In fact, usually the owner will present inside the bookstore and if you tell him your favourite authors or your favourite books he will recommend completely new books to you depending on your taste of books. Sounds cool right.. So that’s what’s really nice about this bookstore because it helps you discover new and really cool books.
