Destination of the Month: India, or "think pink"

While wandering through the Globe Corner Travel aisle at Booksmith this past week, you may have been drawn in, distracted, or blinded by a display of hot pink books. Could someone please tell me why India again and again gets classified as hot pink?

From the Wallpaper Guide and the Love Guide to Delhi, to The Three Sisters Indian Cookbook, to Siddhartha Deb's new book The Beautiful and the Damned, when it comes to India, book designers seem always to "think pink" (I spent Hurricane Sandy re-watching Funny Face).

Pink or not, if you're looking for literature to guide you into India, we've got it. Read more on our blog at globecorner.com.
