Our Story

Established in 2016, The Dogears Bookshop is a small-town bookstore with a big vision. We stock children’s books in English from around the globe, books on Goa, as well as fiction and non-fiction titles from independent and mainstream publishers. Our pre-loved secondhand books, sourced from tourists, make our selection even more unique.

Our bookshop embodies diverse cultures and experiences and serves as a community hub that fosters a love of the arts. We host film festivals, author discussions, seminars, panel discussions, poetry slam events, theatre and other workshops for children, and musical performances. These initiatives bring people together, foster a sense of community, and highlight the power of books to connect, inspire, and inform.

To make books more accessible, we organize book fairs at local schools, colleges, and marketplaces. Come, visit us, and explore a world of books.
