Tired of strolling in malls and thinking of how to spend your summers in Gurugram? Fret not because if you're a bibliophile, we have a suggestion for you which you'll thank us later for!
Soft jazz music, a strictly prevalent no-cellphone policy, bright lights, vivid posters and a sprawling vintage décor, Chapter 101 is a reader's paradise!
A mahogany-themed den on the lines of a private retreat and the whistling charms of a classic understated era, Chapter 101 is a bookstore intended to build a quiet literary atmosphere with carefully curated books beyond the bestsellers. Chapter 101 attempts to inspire and urge their customers to build their own private collections and also assists them by supplying books they'd want to treasure forever!
The store is managed by Rohan Dahiya, a young writer, blogger and visual artist who will assist you in choosing your genre of read for the day and he is the best guy to look up to when it comes to a purchase decision.
You won't find Chetan Bhagat, Suhel Seth or Amish Tripathi here- only carefully collected and curated books which people crave to stock. Over in the corner, you'll also find letters by Ernest Hemingway on the art of writing. Walk a little further down and you can actually bask in the happiness of finding the complete works of Maya Angelou, the poetry of Leonard Cohen and a sizeable volume on the philosophy of Pink Floyd. This store actually exists and its warmth hugs your mind and heart, propelling you to read more and to feel a bit guilty, for not having enough time to do so!
Everything from classics to contemporary, especially the gems from unpopular writers, this store has it all. Ditching the banal, the bookstore maintains a rare collection of reads and it houses the best of rarity from the literary world. For lovers of classics and ardent cliques, this place will be a sweet haven and it rightfully epitomizes the fusion between old world aesthetics and contemporary slivers of literature, serving as a literary escapade for all the readers.
