Best Discount on Books in Nepal

Reading books is fun, but more importantly, it makes you smarter, wiser and more interesting. And if you love reading books, you probably know how expensive books can be. In the context of Nepal more specifically, the reading culture is only now growing. As book communities on the internet like Bookstagram, Booktube, Booktok, etc grow, our youngsters get influenced to read. Teenagers or freshly turned 20-somethings make up a large part of the book-reading group.

But the problem is that most readers do not have a steady flow of income to buy books and collect them. It can be difficult to cut down on the little pocket money that you have to buy books. Although it is worth it, it is not always possible.

If you live in bigger cities, you can find many libraries. For a small membership fee, you can read as many books as you want. There might be second-hand or thrift book shops. Other options are ebooks. But they cost money too. And if there’s something that we can all agree on, physical books are better than digital books. If you are an avid reader, you have probably scoured the internet looking for places to find books in Nepal. And you most likely came across Books Mandala.

About Books Mandala

Books Mandala is Nepal’s largest online bookstore. We operate physically from Lakeside, Pokhara and Gairidhara, Kathmandu, but our social media is where we have the largest outreach. With our ever-growing catalogue currently capping off over 35000 titles, there is probably all that you’re looking for in here. When you visit our official website, you can browse our selection; we have books in all genres and subgenres. From the rarest to international bestsellers, you can find these books at a much lower price than anywhere else. 

And you can have them delivered straight to your doorway. 

Best discount deals on books at Books Mandala

We love giving back to our customers every once in a while for their loyalty and support. At Books Mandala, we offer discount codes every so frequently. Anything that calls for celebration, Dashain-Tihar, New Year, Valentines’ Day, 11-11 (November 11), and even on April Fools’ Day, we give out a flat 10-20% discount.

Besides special occasions sales, we have deals on books live ALL THE TIME on our website. Here are some deals we provide:

Bundle Deals

Bundle Deals features bundles of books that fit a certain niche – books by an author, best books in X genre, best self-help books, new bestsellers, and so on. These bundles are available for 20% off at all times of the year. We change and update these bundles every once in a while, but there is always a bundle ready to be picked up by you.

Book of the Month:

Did you know that every month on Books Mandala’s discord server, we host book discussions for a book? We let our members pick a genre and vote on the books in that genre. Then the book chosen by them will go on sale for 15% off for the entire month. And the next month, we do the same. Not only does this help start conversations around a book, but it also helps people budget their reading. One book a month for 15% off its regular price; plus you learn so much more about talking to other people.

For April, our Book of the Month was Atomic Habits by James Clear. Head on over to our discord server to pick the next BOTM and to our website to snatch the deal.

Used books:

Buying used books is a great way to save money while still being able to read and collect books. The used books listed on our website are imported in large amounts at a time, hence why they cost much lower than their original price. A little secret; more than half of these aren’t even used. They are as good as new, only cost low because they are brought in thousands of boxes at a time.

Currently, all used books are listed for Rs. 250 only. That’s like half or more off the price of these books if you were to buy them somewhere else.

Shop now to secure your book before someone else eyes them.


We also offer ‘buy one get one’ deals on some books every once in a while. Again, connect with us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter to get an alert when these deals go live.

How to Buy Books From Books Mandala?

You can either pick up books at our stores if you live in Kathmandu or Pokhara. If you don’t, you can shop online and have the books delivered to your doorstep. 

When you’re done shopping, go to the checkout page. There you will have to fill in some personal information and delivery address details. Finally, pick the payment method that works the best for you. 

What Payment Methods Are Available?

Did you know that we accept payments through all the major payment gateways in Nepal, like eSewa and Khalti? Well, now you do. You can also choose to pay with cash on delivery for deliveries inside Kathmandu and Pokhara? Just wait for the order to arrive and hand over the charges to the delivery agent. Simple!

You Can Even Purchase Books For Gifting Purposes

Want to give someone book/s? We’ve got you covered on that as well.

If you want to gift books to someone - because let’s be honest, books make the best gifts - we can gift wrap them and write out a little note on your behalf; for a small extra price.

Be sure to choose the ‘Wrap for Gift’ option and leave a message if you have any on the ‘Delivery Notes’ field. Fill out the address and contact information of the receiver, and fill in your own email address if you want to track the order. 

How To Be Sure Your Order Was Placed?

After the checkout is completed and the payment has been gone through, a confirmation message will appear on the page.

To confirm the orders, you will receive a call of confirmation from our team. Then, your order is set and ready to get to you. The confirmation call will usually be made within a few hours to a day.

Delivery Details:

The details on the delivery will be emailed to you at the address you provide upon the confirmation of the order. From there, you can track the order yourself until you get it. 

Most often, deliveries take a few business days. Unless a major inconvenience strikes, it will not take long. However, for any unfortunate delay, you will be notified. 

How Much Is The Delivery Cost?

Besides the order cost, the delivery cost depends upon the place of delivery and the weight of the order. 

Delivery inside Pokhara is only Rs 50 regardless of the weight! So, if you live in Pokhara, you lucked out. Inside Kathmandu Valley, the delivery cost starts at Rs 80 for orders up to 1 kg and increases as the weight goes up.

For deliveries in any other cities, refer to our FAQs. We also ship internationally.

Now that you have found a great way to buy books, treat yourself to some books through Books Mandala. If you are still not sold, we give out bookmarks on every purchase! Isn’t that cool?
