I think Avenue Road in Bangalore is the place you need to visit.

Blossoms has increased the price surely and steadily over the years. While we can get books at a discount it is DEFINETLY NOT CHEAP. While the new books are sold at a discount the many of the older books are sold more than the MRP at that point of time even for not so rare books.

I need to find a shop where I can purchase books at real discount.

Hey Joe,
For computer related books Avenue road is the place. You get good second-hand books too. If its second-hand books start bargaining with 50% of what the seller asks (or around 30% or printed price ). Usually books are of good condition. If a seller doesnt budge, just walk for the next one, since there should be some 100 odd sellers in a space of around 500 mts!. Take your two-wheeler , since parking is a nightmare at that place!.



-HTH
