can¡¦t wait to share this newfound treasure--a bookstore focusing
on mainland Chinese books. The owner, a bookworm and seasoned publisher,
has on display 2,500 books handpicked from more than 85,000 new
publications each year. There¡¦s usually only one copy of each book
on display. Books range from reproductions of ancient string-bound
volumes to those of the 30¡¦s & 40¡¦s, as well as older traditional
Chinese tomes. Every one is a treasure. The store is full of volumes
for professionals, scholars and bookworms, as well as classical
literature and illustrations. Thanks to the low cost of mainland
Chinese books and the owner¡¦s goodwill, I felt privileged almost
to the point of shamefulness, as it cost me less than NT$700 to
buy six absolutely fantastic books.
