#BookshelvesOfMumbai : Hitler and Friends and the delicacy of curation.


The man is a best seller in Mumbai (and India) and it is always fun to check out how the people in bookshops place his book and the books that are placed around it. Example: Some prefer to keep Anne Frank (Flora Fountain Bookwallah). Some place Mossad or a Tharoorian wankjob or a Modi chestthumping book with Anne in the vicinity. I am not sure how many people actually read the whole book but if you go by the store placement langauge used to sell it, it is for people who are begining to read and it's something that they are curious about or maybe the caste supremacist type. http://mumbaipaused.blogspot.com/search/label/Bookshelves
