One of the oldest book store, in chennai, Mount road, opposite to LIC building. It was named after Abel Joshua Higginbotham, a captain who was ejected, from the Madras port, later found an employment as a librarian, where the library was running in loss. He purchased the store, and named it as “HIGGINBOTHAM”. From 1844, it is running successfully till date. There are 2 floors, where ground floor has books related to, fiction, non-fiction, philosophy, travel,history, music and dance, self- development and kids books. First floor, has books for college goers.
Last week after many years, I visited Higginbothams, and purchased couple of books. Lovely ambience. There are staff to guide, when you can’t find a book. There is a separate section for stationery too. A place for book lovers, to visit in Chennai.
