       It was originated as a bookstall at the NCHU and Tung-Hai night market mainly targeted for the university students. And now, using the idea of "low benefit against high sales", the boss is moving his "booth" to the side of the Green Garden Road (in front of the National Museum of Natural Science), with a Chinese signboard meaning "After having nice bite and fun, the best thing to do is reading a good book" in English. All books ordered by customer are sold at the wholesale price. You can find special price books costing from NT$10 to 30 inside the tiny store/site. There are about 10 different styles of books near the entrance, like "Kafka near the beach" by the famous modern Japanese novelist, Murakami Haruki (who was famous for his work, Norwegian Woods) which costs NT$300 with a 30% discount; Juang Chi's Talk (Juang Chi ¡V a famous ancient Chinese thinker) by Tsai, Chi-Chung ¡V a book, DVD and interactive CD-Rom costs NT$280 in total but selling at NT$198 as the special price; Wang, Lee-Hom's "Sheer Accident" (2 books + 1 VCD) costs NT$380 and NT$266 after discount. All types of new magazines are sold with a 20% discount even if bought solely; 25% off for adult magazines (about 6 publishers), and 30% off for magazines published by Chinatimes, CW books and Sitak-Global.
