Chennai's Big Little Bookshop

An appropriately short report on the small but packed Giggles in Chennai. Here's owner Nalini Chettur: "In spite of TV, in spite of the internet my customer base has become larger. I have more people coming in because they want specialist books and books which I recommend and books where they want to be introduced to new writing...Can you sit under a tree and read an e-book? Can you share it with three or four people? Pass the book around if you're reading poetry? That's why a book is almost a living thing,"
