A shout to book lovers: Bookchor is back with ‘Lock the box’ in Sector 15, Chandigarh


For all the book lovers in Tricity, there is some good news. Bookchor is in Chandigarh with its unique ‘Lock the Box’ book fair. With an amazing collection boasting of more than two million books, the book fair has a different concept than others like it.

There are three different-sized boxes available at the venue where you can choose the box on the basis of the number of books you wish to buy. Akshay Jangra from the Bookchor team explains that the three different boxes come with three different prices. The smallest box which is green in colour is for Rs 1,200, the mid-sized box which is orange in colour is for Rs 1,800 and the biggest one which is pink is for Rs 3,000. You can buy as many books as could fit into the box that you choose to pick, but your box must close fully.

So if anyone wishes to purchase books without going for the boxes? “It is possible but would end up costing the buyer more whereas the flat price of each of the boxes ensures you get more than your money’s worth,” says Jangra.

Weekends are busier and this time Bookchor has made sure that it is in Chandigarh for an entire month. “Since there was a good response last time around, therefore we have booked the place for the entire month,” says Jangra. This is the third edition of the fair and there are many genres to choose from. They have something for every reader, from a great collection of romance reads to thrillers, there is an interesting poetry collection, books on history and politics in addition to the classics. Bookchor merchandise is also available for purchase at the venue. They have a quirky collection of tote bags, diaries and a host of different bookworm-friendly merchandise on display at the fair.
