Your next great read awaits your arrival at Vile Parle's 56-year-old Pethani Book Centre!

Is reading your superpower?

If you're into sniffing new books, proudly rocking those paper cuts and always suggesting books to your pals, then we have a recommendation for you, fellow bibliophile! The Pethani Book Centre in Vile Parle, Mumbai, is a charming little shop. It's unique because it's not only packed with books inside but also overflowing with them outside. It's a real treasure trove for bookworm!

A good collection of novels and course books

For 56 years now, the Pethani Book Centre has stood its ground in Sangam Arcade, Vile Parle, right across from the railway station and it's a family affair, run by a father-son duo.

Besides offering a vast collection of books spanning diverse genres and monthly magazines, the shop is a lifeline for college and school students. They stock new books as well as deeply discounted second-hand ones, catering to all budgets.

So if you're looking to unwind with a new mystery, a self-help favourite or the latest romance, here is where you should drop by! You'll find many intriguing titles, available in both brand new and second-hand conditions at this Vile Parle book store.

What's more to it?

And what makes this store even better? It also serves as a library. So, if you're one of those book collectors with shelves full of unread books (we've all been there), you can rent a book here for a full month at just half the price.

In the grand scheme of things, we all get drawn to those posh mall bookstores, tempted by pricey books that we just can't resist buying. But, when you're in the Ville Parle area, it's worth taking a peek at the collection in Pethani Book Centre. You might just discover your next great read (or a whole stack of them) at incredibly affordable prices!
