i usually buy vedic astrology books online. as most of leading bookstores don’t keep many astrology books. usually you will find bejan daruwala books or yearly prediction books in the astrology section of crossword or other leading bookstores.
i have not tried all the major websites in india for buying astrology books online. the one which i have tried, i am writing the honest review below. i am mentioning the book stores in the order of my preference (e.g. most favorite online store is saptarishiastrology).
where to buy vedic astrology books online in india:
1. saptarishisastrology – one of the best website to order astrology books. for some books you can see the preview of first few pages. currently, you get 1 astrology book free for order of rs 1000 or two astrology books free for order of rs 1800. the free book is of 10% value of your order. if you want to suggest the name of free book you prefer, then mention it in the comment section while completing the order. otherwise, they send books of sh k.n.rao or sh j.n.bhasin or m.c.mehta. they are doing a lot of work to promote astrology.
you can download lot of astrology articles, magazines and old manuscripts from their website. also check their website for any astrology courses happening in mumbai or else where. so its one of my favorite astrology website. they send books via post office and the dispatch from their end is quick (usually takes 1-3 days from placing the order). keep you updated via email and also respond to your emails.
2. flipkart.com – one of the fastest and well known online store to buy books in india. you get free delivery if total order amount for WS Retail (order is from flipkart and not other stores listed in flipkart) is Rs. 500 or above. but many of the astrology books are discontinued in their website. still worth checking as some time you get good discount.
3. amazon.in – again, a very good delivery service comparable to flipkart, if the order is delivered by amazon itself. currently all books are free, if send by amazon. books send by amazon partners take time to be delivered and delivery charges are also applicable. many astrology books are there and sometime you get good discount.
4. mlbd.com – one of the well known publishing brand in india – ‘moti lal banarsi das’. they send books by post office and it usually takes 5-7 days for book to reach your house from the day you place order. once my book was not in their stock so they refunded the money in my bank account. good service. send updates via email.
5. indiabookcenter.com – most of k.n. rao books and magazines are available here and other astrology books. they deliver by post office and decent service. send updates of book order via email. take more time to send books than saptarishisastrology.com
6. exoticindiaart.com – many astrology books are there. but for each book they take 100 rs as handling charge which i find expensive. try this website if you don’t get book anywhere else and are ready to shell out extra money. can get the order delivered via special courier with extra charges.
7. bookshopofindia.com – they are based in delhi and many astrology books are available here. but not very good service. some times the books are not available and they try to contact the publisher to get the book. but don’t inform you via email. so you have to keep on trying their phone number (mostly its engaged) to get the updates and if the book is not available then to get refunds. so its not a hassle free service if the book is not in their stock. i got refund for my books. no communication via email and don’t respond to your emails.
tips for buying astrology books:
1. check the book price in all these websites as sometimes the books are quoted at different prices or a website is giving discount.
2. if you are ordering many books (big bundle) and they are coming via post office then your post men might ask you to come and collect the books from post office.
3. some astrology books preview can be read at google-books. try this link if you are not sure of the book you are ordering.
