How To Buy Nepali Books From the UK?
When you live in the land of the royals and the sophisticated, it doesn’t take much to lose yourself in the hustle and bustle abroad. So, what better way to get a taste of home and our roots than reading books by our own authors?
Easier said than done, because it is so difficult to find Nepali books in the UK. Even giant shopping sites do not seem to have a good enough collection to browse and pick from. These handful of books are probably everything you’ve already read.
Are you looking for more; newer or lesser known books from Nepali authors? If so, you have come to just the right place.
