Opinion | Silicon Valley has a page turner for bookstores

Because of my father’s transferable job in the Indian Railways, we moved from one town to another. Every place I went to, the small independent bookstore, often at the local railway station, became my pet hangout. That was until we moved to large cities that had multiple independent bookstores. There I saw the birth of chain bookstores such as Crossword. But the charm of the independent bookstore was unique and Bengaluru’s Bookworm, Select and Premier became my favourites.
