The Scholars Cull-Fest 2008

Come the 15th of April, Scholars is having (what we hope is the first of) our annual BOOK Giveaways.

Near the office of the School of Information Technology, JNU, New Delhi, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm on Tuesday, come pick up any book you want (maximum of 5 per person!) totally FREE OF COST. The books themselves- there are a few hundred paperbacks and hardcovers- have all been owned by scholars who are culling their bookshelves. Some of the collections go back over 50 years, so there are unexpected treasures to be found.

The paperback list is too long to include here, but the hardcover list is shorter. In case you aren't in Delhi, but would still like some of the books, we will be happy to send them to you for the cost of postage and handling. Write in to us at to find out if the title you want is still available.

The titles may not all be exactly right, but you will recognise the books in most cases.
