Victoria Book Centre and VCD DVD Library


Book Stores

Victoria Book Centre and DVD Library at first glance, looks like a plain old rental shop but don’t be fooled by its tiny appearance. Once one examines the neatly stacked shelves of this small but brightly lit and well maintained bookstore one would be delighted to spot his/ her favorite genre. The owner of the shop started selling books in 1938 and gradually expanded to include DVDs and magazines. The shop is now run with the help of his son and daughter-in-law.

It offers a good collection of Fiction by Indian women writers. Health and self-help books, bestsellers and romance novels tend to obscure some of the good stuff like the acidly entertaining 'World’s Greatest Rock n Roll Scandals', and their selection of Indian literature which includes almost-new copies of Sudha Murthy’s 'Dollar Bahu', AK Ramanujan’s 'Folktales from India', and an anthology of stories by Indian women writers called 'The Inner Courtyard', marked down 50 percent from the retail price.

Many foreign clients & local people like to come at the shop to pick up books on Indian art and culture. This is a good place to come if you’re not particularly looking for latest releases. One can easily spend a couple of hours just browsing through literature on dramas that date back to the 19th century, press articles neatly filed since decades, and many other fiction and nonfiction galore. It also provides a facility of Membership at Rs 150 for a month (plus an initial deposit of Rs 150).
