“Lovely bookshop, friendly owner”
Review of Idiom Book Sellers

Idiom Book Sellers
Ranked #10 of 44 Shopping in Kochi (Cochin)
Attraction details
Reviewed March 12, 2017 via mobile

This is a lovely little bookshop selling a mix of new and used books about a range of topics, as well as having a wide selection of books on India (everything from Indian literature to cookbooks to meditation guides). The owner is incredibly friendly and happy to help if you're looking for a specific type of book, but also lets you browse hassle free.

The owner of this shop is so knowledgeable and helpful and I always find some books I want to buy here. This time I bought and read "Indian Summer" - a great book about Partition. I couldn't put it down. Go there and browse and ask questions and you will be sure to find a book to enjoy.

Independent bookshops are always a joy. The collection in this bookshop, which I suspect is largely meant to appeal to the foreign visitors is a pleasure to browse. Find rare titles on Indian art, history, music, religion and yoga. If these areas interest you, you are in for a treat.

A bookshop to please the literature lover and a range of South Indian titles. With a friendly floor manager lady who will call her sources immediately to find out if the title you want is available. Worth spending time in, for the well curated sections. This is getting increasingly rarer, so I do consider it worth a tourist's time to browse at ease.
