“A little gold mine in Kochi”
Review of Idiom Book Sellers

Idiom Book Sellers
Ranked #10 of 44 Shopping in Kochi (Cochin)
Attraction details
Reviewed December 17, 2017 via mobile

This shop is an Aladdin cave full of amazing books most which you will have difficulty finding else where, shelves are packed so if you can’t find what your looking for the staff are very enthusiastic and helpful and they will remove the protective dust wrappers for you -you just have to ask and most importantly they don’t try to sell you anything you don’t want.

If you find more books than you carry the charming lady will have them shipped home for you !

A welcoming shop which has hidden corners and coves and is a bit higgldy, piggildy, but has it's own order and many cook and travel books and much about the Keralan culture and history. They are happy to parcel up and post books home for you saving the weight in your case--we've taken advantage of this when we discovered we couldn't leave the books here!!

So many beautiful books at amazingly cheap prices weird and wonderful collections only thing we had to watch was the weight of our luggage for our flight home!
But the charming lady helped us send book over seas as gifts so that gave me a little more room for books for me.
Super efficiant cheerful staff who couldn't be more helpful, we look forward to visiting again as we have a list started already.

Just looked in my favourite Indian recipebook we've bought at Idiom somewhere in the year 2000 and got a smile on my face ☺️

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.
