Bookchor, an online bookstore for pre-owned books, is hosting ‘LockTheBox Reloaded,’ a one-of-a-kind book sale in which you don’t have to pay for individual books; instead, you pay for a box and take home as many books as you can fit into the box.
To be held from 25th June to 3rd July at Shubh Convention, Puttenahalli, Phase 7, JP Nagar, Bengaluru, the event will have over 10 Lakh books to choose from across genres such as fiction, non-fiction, crime, romance, books for young adults and children, adventure, science fiction, and much more.
Bibliophiles can choose from three different sizes of boxes named after Greek mythology heroes- The Odysseus box, Perseus Box, and the biggest and the mightiest, the Hercules box.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 ‘𝗢𝗱𝘆𝘀𝘀𝗲𝘂𝘀’ 𝗕𝗼𝘅: Priced at Rs 1199/-
𝗧𝗵𝗲 ‘𝗣𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗲𝘂𝘀’ 𝗕𝗼𝘅: Priced at Rs 1799/-
The ‘𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗰𝘂𝗹𝗲𝘀’ 𝗕𝗼𝘅’: The biggest box is priced at Rs 2999/-
Readers can add as many books of their choice in the box with only the condition that the box should close flat. So, there is literally no limit on the number of books.
Well-known authors Anand Neelakantan and Sudeep Nagarkar will be present at the event for a meet and greet with book lovers and to share signed copies of their books.
Commenting on the event, Vidyut Sharma, Founder, Bookchor, said, “We are thrilled to host ‘LockTheBox Reloaded’ in Bangalore. We have received an overwhelming response in other cities like Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, Indore, and we are hoping to receive a similar response in Bangalore too. Book lovers can choose from over 10 Lakh books from Indian and International authors across genres. We will also replenish the books on a daily basis so that readers can get the best of the content available in the market.”
Bookchor.com is a 6-year-old startup founded with an aim of inculcating reading habits among Indian youth by providing books at the most affordable prices. LockTheBox was started in 2018 in Delhi and this is the third edition of LockTheBox in Bangalore.
Book lovers also have an option to sell their used books at the event. They can download Bookchor’s ‘Dump’ app on Android and iOS, and upload details about the books they want to sell.
