Sani Yasneen’s Bookstore: Books Priced by the Kilo

In the sphere of bookshops, the custom has always been to acquire books at their assigned price. However, the tale took a new turn when Sani Yasmeen, a bright young entrepreneur from Srinagar, chose to bridge the gap between high-priced books and accessibility for the average public. This innovative notion started a new age when books were priced equivalent to a Kilo of a commodity, making them accessible and within reach for everyone. At the core of this revolutionary bookshop sits Sani Yasneen’s concept, hidden in the busy Lal Chowk district, offering a range of cherished titles at unparalleled rates.

The bookshop features a large selection, from fiction and non-fiction to children’s tales, Urdu literature, Islamic materials, and more. What sets this organisation apart is its focus on affordability, giving discounts of up to 15-20% on various genres and making great reading material accessible to everybody.

The symbiotic link between self-help books and Islamic studies is also significant. Visitors frequently start with motivating texts, eventually migrating to explore the rich tapestry of Islamic literature. Sani’s project democratises book access and supports a progressive reading trajectory, encouraging readers to discover new genres and extend their intellectual horizons.
