Filter Coffee with The Last Nomad | Welcome to The Bookworm, Bengaluru

Ask any author...

If there's anything delightful next to receiving readers’ feedback, it is seeing even a single copy of your book on the shelves of a bookstore. And trust me; it is tremendously difficult and super delighting for a debut author to witness his/her work in a bookstore.

Today evening one such surprise was awaiting me. Thanks to The Bookworm team, finally my novella, The Last Nomad, met its readers in Bengaluru.

In a city famous for its filter coffee and voracious readers, among other things, The Bookworm is a reader's heaven. Being an avid reader himself, Mr. Krishna Gowda, coming from a small village near Mangalore started working in a small bookshop on a pavement in the year 1997. Later in 2000 he opened The Bookworm and today is the humble owner of its, 5000 square feet sprawling, third outlet which opened in March 2016 on the Church Street opposite Starbucks.

I feel proud not only because my book has been placed besides ones by famous authors, but more so because it has met a passionate reader more than an owner, Mr. Krishna Gowda.

Think that’s all? Do you know the hidden connection between The Last Nomad and Bengaluru?
The story takes an unexpected turn in Bengaluru itself! And I know you won't believe if I said it's just a coincidence - the story was written much before I knew about The Bookworm. The author also has a special relation with Mr. Krishna's hometown and mother tongue, but that's another story ;-)

So if you or your friends are in Bengaluru, here's your chance to meet The Last Nomad exclusively in The Bookworm. Limited copies available!
