Cross words in T Nagar

Tomorrow it will be officially open for business. But the business of books has already begun at Crossword, T Nagar. Situated on the first floor of the new Kuppu Arcade, Venkatnarayana Road (somewhat opposite Panagal Park), the first of the book chains to enter T Nagar has found a good spot.

The ambience is very inviting, plenty of seating to make oneself comfortable, a biro coffeeshop adjacent for refreshments and an absence of the hurry that characterizes the shopping district of Chennai.

The books are still being unpacked but a reasonable collection is on display already. Given the proximity of several IT companies, the Business and Management books section is well-stocked and occupies an entire wall. This branch is much bigger than the one in Shopper’s Stop and seems all set to become a stopper’s spot.

    last time i visited Crosswords in Shopper’s Stop the collection had dwindled, it seemed. they were renovating what used to be a coffee shop(?) next to it. and i was a bit disappointed because crosswords used to such a great place to read books without even buying them. and they used encourage such readers. wondering if crosswords plans to actually move out of shoppers’ stop and into its new location in T Nagar, eventually.
