I got to know about this bookstore from one of the tweets of the professor I follow on twitter, [and] whose book is also available at the store. Their selection of books is wonderful and they also ship the books worldwide. Their customer service was also responsive and quick.
I purchased several books from their website as I discovered a lot of academic books I couldn’t resist. I would urge people to kindly support this bookstore. I also plan to buy more books in the future via their website, and also in person when the pandemic gets over.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the martyred Portuguese-Angolan-Goan Revolutionary, Sita Valles, introduced me to the amazing independent Dogears Bookshop. I am a 60+ year old diaspora Goan, living in Scotland, that decided to read about progressive Goans and Goan History during the pandemic.
I was seeking a book on Sita Valles on the web and discovered this bookshop in Goa selling “Sita Valles: A Revolutionary Until Death”. That book was my first purchase in March 2020 and the start of a fruitful relationship.
Since then I have purchased works by amazing Indian writers and activists like: Jason Keith Fernandes, Kancha Illiah, Anand Teltumbde, Teesta Setalvad, Harsh Mander, Vijay Prashad, Meera Devi and Bhanwar Meghwanshi among others.
Through books Dogears helped me gain a better understanding of the complex, frustrating, often poisonous and at times even uplifting politics of India, and the immense grit and courage of many Indians who struggle for Justice and Human Rights. The wide collection of works they offer on Dalits, Adivasis, Indian authors of regional languages in translation, Politics, Human Rights, Goan and Indian History, not to mention Goan recipe books has ensured they are my bookshop of choice in India.
Greeting from cold and Covid ravaged UK!
May 2021 be a good year for Dogears Bookshop
I received the book yesterday. It was well packed and in immaculate condition. Getting the book from you has been a joy. Thank you for the hassle free and prompt response.
