It's unbelievably massive. Imagine Amazon pushing all of their warehouse onto the street of Daryagunj. Open only on Sundays. I got down in Chawri Bazar metro and took a rickshaw to get here. For a spend of about Rs.1000, I got such a treasure of collections. Worth visiting.

The Weekend Book Market has colossal collection of books at inexpensive prices. The market is HUGE! Go as early as you can to grab the best finds. We reached at 9 in the morning and it was buzzing with people; now you decide how early! This isn’t the place for you if you’re specifically looking for a particular title or edition. It is a extraordinary plunge into the obscure brimming with lavish possibilities. Dive deep into the ocean to find a unique pearl. Sellers aren't aware of book names and authors; so you'll have to do all the hard work to look for the book you want and frankly, it's a tough task to find one in the huge pile. And everything is bargain-able here. Price can be one-fourth of the market price only if you know how to bargain.

This weekend Book market is located at Darya Gunj very near to Chandni chowk. On every Sunday Book lovers visit this place to buy books of all types at just rock bottom price. You can buy books/magazines etc across all areas. You need to bargain a lot at this place. Mainly second hand books are sold here but also sometime you may find brand new books and novels at 50% discount. You need to search for your choice of book out of lakhs of books. But interesting
