Thought is something of a wonderland hidden in an alley near NanMen Road. It's tiny but attractive, and with more than 15,000 secondhand books in stock, well-organized and elegant. The owner, Mr. Wu, seems quite nonchalant, saying he started this store on a whim. All the books here were selected by Mr. Wu; no comic books or reference books are offered. Some of them are items he has collected for himself. Prices are often 50-percent below what the book would cost new--even if the book is in fact brand new. Mr. Wu is also interested in buying books. Because it is air-conditioned and clean, with chairs and soft-music provided for the customers, it's no wonder that this is a popular store. Mr. Wu is planning to move Thought to a bigger place, where he can set up a coffee bar and co-host cultural events. He also hopes to open a flea market for trading calendars, bookmarks, and other items.
